Author Event: Joseph Shuldiner and Pure Vegan at Lindy & Grundy’s

Joseph Shuldiner, an L.A. County Master Food Preserver, the founder of the Altadena Farmers’ Market, and the director of the Institute of Domestic Technology, invites Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to an event marking the publication of Pure Vegan: 70 Recipes for Beautiful Meals and Clean Living:

When: Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 6:00-8:00pm
Where: Lindy and Grundy, 801 North Fairfax, Los Angeles
Cost: The event is free: Cookbooks will be available for purchase and the author will sign copies.

Reservations are required: Please contact rsvp@purevegancookbook.com with your name and the number in your party.

It may seem odd that a vegan cookbook is being celebrated at a sustainable butcher shop, but that’s in keeping with Shuldiner’s philosophy, which is summed up in his statement, “The title of the book is ‘Pure Vegan,” not ‘Puritanical Vegan.'” This is a book that celebrates eating rather than emphasizing the politics of a vegan lifestyle, and the recipes are both plant-based and indulgent. While all the recipes are non-meat/egg/dairy, Shuldiner’s combinations will appeal to meat-lovers and committed vegans alike.
