Event Description


She has spent a lifetime researching vegetarian issues, starting in 1972.   Years of organic food gardening, studying plant based nutrition, and developing whole food vegan recipes has led Denise to take on diverse catering functions for several local non profit organizations and she has taught popular hands-on workshops in vegan cookery.

Who doesn’t want to lose weight easily and healthfully? Side effect: dramatically reduce your risk of disease AND lower your carbon footprint! Have fun preparing nutritious fresh and fast meals the whole family will love.
