In November, hubby and I organized VGF once again. This was the second time we did VGF (the first one was in Feb). It involved a lot of planning and work but in the end, it was totally worth it! :)
This article in The Hindu Metroplus clearly explains what VGF is all about.
Here are a some photos from the event:

And here's the poster we created for VGF:
We plan to have VGF a few times a year. Follow our VGF Facebook Page for more pictures and information.
In other news, my Tropical Garnet Cocktail/Mocktail won the best beverage prize in the Virtual Vegan Potluck that was held in November. Yay! This is the second time my beverage has won a VVP prize, the first was my Hot Spiced Masala Chai last November. :)
Check out this cool video announcing all the winners in the various categories on the VVP website.
I'll share pics of all the prize goodies once they arrive. :)
Finally, I've been saving the best for last. From the beginning of December, I've started working at our local vegan restaurant, Carrots. After much thought, my hubbs came up with a designation name for me which encapsulates the various roles I've taken on at Carrots - Countess of Cuisine and Jollification. Yes, that's my official designation and will be on my business cards too. :D
I'm at the restaurant a few days a week and I'm totally loving it so far. The job, the environment, the people, the YUMMMM food! It's all awesome!!! :)
My first pet project as soon as I started at Carrots has been to work with Chefs Gurung and Ram to create a fantastic vegan buffet for New Year's Eve. I'm really proud of all the dishes we've come up with. If you're in Bangalore, this is a must-taste vegan spread! The full menu will be announced tomorrow on the Facebook Event Page.
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with photos of some of the dishes to drool over. :)
