Meeting A Hero at the D.C. VegFest
What a absolute delight it was to meet one of my favorite chefs, vegan or otherwise, at this year's Veg Fest in D.C. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author of The Joy of Vegan Baking, Color Me Vegan, and most recently The 30 Day Vegan Challenge, was a speaker at this year's event. The night before I had dropped her a quick note via Facebook, asking her to drop by our booth (RabbitWise), never imagining she would have the time to come by or even if she would see the note. She must get TONS of Facebook messages, after all. Well, I was just thrilled when she did come by later that afternoon, and she was sweet enough to pose for a picture with me. It is so rare that we get the chance to meet those we admire; I really "trained" to cook and bake better with her books; I cannot recommend her enough to all who are just starting out on their vegan journey.
