Annie and Dan Shannon present Betty Goes Vegan: 500 Classic Recipes for the Modern Family
Cooking demonstration, discussion and signing
Betty Crocker has been an icon in American cooking for nearly 100 years. Brooklynites Annie and Dan Shannon were as charmed by her as everyone else—but what was a vegan to do? Use her inspiration to become a vegan “Betty,” of course. This epiphany bore The Betty Crocker Project, launched on their blog MeettheShannons.com two years ago, in which the Shannons attempted to cook all the recipes in the Betty Crocker Cookbook vegan-style. They’ve collected the best of these made-over recipes along with some of their own originals in their new cookbook Betty Goes Vegan: it’s Betty Crocker meets Veganomicon, a family cookbook for vegans. Annie and Dan will do a cooking demo of some of their recipes from the book at tonight’s event, and answer questions for aspiring cooks.
