vegan feast

went to candle 79 in Manhattan for an amazingly delicious vegan dinner to celebrate Jenn's graduation from Columbia's teacher's college!
best of luck in fl, we will miss you lots and lots!!
p.s. i love you seitan.
for apps, we shared
seitan nachos, grilled seitan chimichurri, saffron-lobster mushroom ravioli
pecan encrusted seitan:
sautéed celery and pine nuts, spicy lentils, heirloom cherry tomatoes, beet reduction
caribbean jerk grilled seitan:
plantains, collard greens, black bean sauce, mango-papaya salsa, habanero-cilantro coulis
seitan piccata:
creamed spinach, grilled potato cake, oyster mushrooms, lemon-caper sauce
moroccan spiced chickpea cake:
seasonal veggies, red pepper-coconut curry, fresh apricot chutney, almonds

then the desserts were just as incredible!
fresh figs with vanilla fig ice cream and chopped pecans
tripple-layer dark chocolate tort
fresh peach crumble with ice cream

remember, the entire meal was made with no meat, eggs, or dairy!!
