Just in case you missed our segment on cw39’s Morning Dose last week! We were thrilled to have Maggie Flecknoe at Recipe House, where she tried some amazing veggies prepared by Chef Greg Martin of Bistro Menil. She’s taking the VegOut! Challenge this January, and invited the whole Morning Dose team!
We asked award-winning NYC pastry chef Heather Carlucci to share her VegOut! 2015 adventures and her list of favorite VegOut!-friendly Manhattan restaurants. Heather, who serves on our Board of Directors, is also co-founder of Pig Mountain: Pig Roast and Veggie Fest, a charitable feast involving an army of chefs roasting what seems like a whole herd of pigs, plus delectable side dishes, held in upstate New York each August, and she is a member of the James Beard Foundation Board.
Carlucci says she joined our VegOut! Challenge because she wanted to support Recipe for Success Foundation’s effort to bring attention the role that eating produce plays in our overall health. She also says she enjoyed the challenge of cooking specific vegetables at home throughout each week. “I had fun keeping up with the vegetable of the day at home,” says Carlucci.
Our VegOut! HERE partners at H-E-B offer fresh, seasonal produce all year-round, making them an easy resource to help you make delicious VegOut! meals at home. This month, in honor of the 30-Day Challenge, H-E-B Houston stores are offering VegOut! Kids Cooking Classes, featuring a different veggie each class.
