An art installation that’s part culinary, part literary.
The Lusty Vegan A Cookbook and Dating Manifesto For Vegans & The People Who Love Them is part narrative, part cookbook, authored by chef Ayinde Howell and Zoe
Eisenberg. The book contains 80 whole food-based recipes geared towards the home cook as well as stories and anecdotes for how a vegans and omnivores can co-exist romantically.
While it mainly focuses on the dating stage of a relationship, it can extend to married couples, friendships, and families working to survive in a “mixed-vore” home.
The Lusty Vegan Culinary Art event
In promotion of the book, comes the NYC stop of the Lusty Vegan culinary event.
This immersing culinary art installation includes large scale photos from the book, product give-aways and a multi-course dining experience featuring recipes from the book. Zoe and Ayinde will give a 30 minute talk dispersed between courses, along with introductions to dishes.
The event will close with a brief Q & A.
The Art Experience
Before the meal, guests will be able to browse several photography selections from the book that give guests a visual experience of what the book will be like. These images will be a mix of the high quality “lifestyle” photographs from the book, as well as food photography.
The Food Experience
Four courses will be served. Between each course, Zoe and Ayinde will continue to come out between each course to talk about what they’re eating and offer anecdotes on:
• Navigating and respecting your differences in a vegan/omni relationship
• How food plays an integral part of who we are and who we connect with
• Short stories from the “making of” the Lusty vegan
• Short anecdotes from the author’s own dating pasts
