The Chef: Joseph
The Menu: Another lunch created from the pages of The Accidental Vegan. Joseph treated us to a trio of yummy dishes, starting with a Basmati Pilaf, which featured raisins, cinnamon, and almonds, and was utterly delicious. On the bottom left of the plate you see Afghani Stew, which was a mixture of eggplant, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, and spices. It, too, was incredibly good. Finally, the Red Beans and Greens with Coconut Milk made a scrumptious side dish, and Joseph finished it off with a dusting of cilantro.
The Goods: Today was one for the record books in terms of awesome guests! First of all, today marks Ms. Charlotte's first day as an editorial assistant here at VN, and we're thrilled to have her! We were also joined by Yvette of vegweb.com and Laura of vegansaurus.com! Since yesterday was Elizabeth's birthday, Ms. Colleen made a gorgeous cake, which we have since devoured. Trust us, coconut-flake-covered strawberry shortcake is a winner!
