Wed. April 23 • Elizabeth Castoria • How to Be Vegan: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for Cruelty-Free Eating, Living, Dating, Travel, Decorating, and More • 6:30-7:30. FREE.

 

Author Elizabeth Castoria, the former editorial director of VegNews, offers a useful, friendly introduction to the vegan lifestyle for those who want to dabble or for those already committed to living animal-product-free. She shows how simple it is to be vegan, from the food (plants, fruits, nuts, and grains all explained) and nutrition (which supplements are needed), to the etiquette (what to do at an omnivore’s dinner party), travel (where to find the best vegan airport food in the United States), fashion (there's no need to swear off designer duds), and more.

Sat. April 26 • Erin Gleeson • The Forest Feast: Simple Vegetarian Recipes from My Cabin in the Woods • 3-4 p.m. FREE

 

. Erin Gleeson made her dream a reality when she left New York City and moved into a tiny cabin in a California forest in order to be closer to nature. The natural beauty of her surroundings and the abundance of local produce serve as the inspiration for The Forest Feast, based on her popular blog. Most of the book’s 100 wholly vegetarian recipes call for only three or four ingredients and require very few steps, resulting in dishes that are fresh, wholesome, delicious, and stunning.

Sat. May 10 • David Lebovitz • My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories • 3-4 p.m. FREE

 

It’s been ten years since David Lebovitz packed up his most treasured cookbooks, a well-worn cast-iron skillet, and his laptop and moved to Paris. In that time, the culinary culture of France has shifted as a new generation of chefs and home cooks—most notably in Paris—incorporates ingredients and techniques from around the world into traditional French dishes. In My Paris Kitchen, David remasters the classics, introduces lesser-known fare, and presents 100 sweet and savory recipes that reflect the way modern Parisians eat today.
