Instead of a potluck this month (July), we are having a Carrot Mob! We’d like to show our appreciation for the great vegan eats that Tidal Creek has been offering on their hot bar. Let’s get together and grab a bite, or just grab a drink, and socialize out on the deck outside (or inside). The Saturday theme is Southern Food and it will be an ALL VEGAN HOT BAR!! How great is that?!?!
Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy vegan eats and meet up with other like-minded folks. Let’s show our numbers and create a positive incentive for more vegan eats in Wilmington!
This event is on Saturday.
There is no potluck for July.
Carrot Mob takes the idea of a “flash mob” and uses a fun image of a carrot to represent the plants we love to eat. We’re a vegan mob of diners heading out to show our support to local restaurants and shops with vegan offerings. This is fun for us and shows businesses that there are a lot of us out there craving vegan fare. It offers a positive incentive to the restaurant – a carrot rather than a stick.
Local artisan chef extraordinaire Sandra is hosting two upcoming vegan cheese making classes! Take a look at her descriptions below and get in touch if you’d like to attend.
Vegan Cheese Demo and Tasting Part One – Sunday, July 9th, 11am
Come join us as I show you how to create your own vegan cheeses at home! For this class we will make Mozzarella with the famous Aquafaba, and the second one we will make is a creamy cashew cheese spread that is great on EVERYTHING! We will sample them both and I will have recipes for all to take home. The class will be $25 per person. If you attend both demos, you will get a discounted rate of $45!
Vegan Cheese Demo and Tasting Part Two – Sunday, July 9th, 2pm
In this demo we will be making a versatile cheese sauce that is perfect for baked macaroni and cheese or for baked potatoes or nachos, and more! The second is a Smoked Coconut Gouda that would impress anyone! We will sample both and I will have recipes to take home. Cost is $25 per person. If you attend both classes, I will give a discounted rate of $45.
UPDATE: THE JULY POTLUCK HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Instead of having a potluck, we are getting together for a Carrot Mob at Tidal Creek on Saturday, July 22nd, 5-7pm!
The potluck themes for June and July 2017 are (drumroll please) “Cookout” and “In Season,” respectively. Take a look at the Calendar for all the event details you need to know. Our events are 100% vegan and open to everyone!
Short Descriptions of all upcoming potlucks:
May – Cold Dishes
The Wilmington weather is just starting to heat up high so let’s get together and share our favorite vegan cold dishes. Bring anything vegan as long as it’s a cold meal on a hot day!
June – Cookout
Summertime is the time for BBQ and cookouts! Let’s get together and enjoy grilled favorites and summer picnic sides. We can use the two gas grills by the pool if we’d like to and we can hang out outside if the weather is right.
July – In Season
Many veggies and fruits are in season in our area in July! Let’s include at least one local seasonal ingredient in our dishes. Here are some of what should be in season (weather depending): green beans, butter beans, blueberries, cabbage, corn, cantaloupe, cucumbers, eggplant, leafy greens, okra, peaches, peas, peppers, potatoes, squash, tomatoes, watermelon, etc.
