All this time you thought your dog was your best friend…
But, it turns out, it’s your blender.
I mean, I just don’t have a puppy, so… it’s just me ‘n’ my blender. 🙁
No, waitwait, in all seriousness, Chloe is my best friend, obvs, but there are practically a million things that you can do with a blender, making it a truly trusty and faithful companion. Hence, Chloe and I decided it was high time to organize a cooking workshop totally focused on blender recipes. And aside from the epic fail of my top knot (no jokes please,) our Asian Cooking Workshop Tuesday was a phenomenal success!
See, these days Paris is bubbling with new ideals, practices, and philosophies with many of them leaning toward organic/veggie/sustainable, and for this we can only say, “Hurray!” (Read more about the Paris veggie revolution.) Meaning… Parisians of all ages and backgrounds gathered enthusiastically for our plant-based, gluten-free, and blender-made bonanza! Yay!
Our participants had many different reasons for coming… there were:
(There was a poll. 😉 )
We are delighted to be collaborating with 5 Lorette for our workshops, as their food, philosophy, and style align amazingly well with ours. The restaurant is warm, inviting, and totally magnifique. A place where you feel comfortable and want to ‘plant’ yourself for hours!
We feel it’s truly important to create community around healthy food. Through our workshops we are able to really share and exchange, and we are so grateful for all the wonderful people we meet almost every day thanks to Veggie Magnifique, and to this growing health-conscious community in Paris.
Another big priority of ours is to, of course, demystify the preparation of plant-based food. In short: Eating a balanced plant-based diet is easier than you think. (‘Spesh if you have a blender!) We make sure our recipes are easy peasy to recreate at home and that our workshops are very interactive and hands on. We want people to touch, feel, and even play with their food. Because that’s what it’s all about. It’s not that serious. I mean… it is and it isn’t. What you put in your mouth is all kinds of serious, but… let’s treat it with lightness and play.
Thanks to all of you who came out and participated in this special workshop. Hope to see you, and those who couldn’t make it this time, at the next one! (If you’re not in Paris, time to start researching your flights for next month’s workshop!) Details coming soon.
