I was born and raised in that wonderful little city known as Portland, Oregon. While I gladly left my web feet behind, there are some thing I miss about my hometown: the trees, the quaint towns, and of course, the awesome food! Yes, people from the northwest love their food and they love it as natural as possible.
As I sit at my desk gazing out at the beautifully sunny day (obviously much further south), I am struck by an announcement of an event that I wish I could attend, a vegan cookie contest! The Herbivore Store in Portland, Oregon is hosting a vegan cookie contest, showcasing entries from Isa Chandra Moskowitz (Vegan with a Vengeance & Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World), Dreena Burton (Vive le Vegan), and Sarah Kramer (How it all Vegan). Basically, it sounds like a fun cookie tasting in which customers get to partake in some delicious sampling.
Eight cookies will be ready for munching, so head on over Saturday, July 7, 2007 at 2pm. Trust me, vegan cookies really do taste awesome, though I still like the cookie dough best!
