Fall 2013If you're a veg beginner - or even if you're well beyond that stage - VEG 101 is the right place to start! This course is a 6-week series on veganism, featuring both a lecture and a cooking demonstration (with free samples!) each week. The lectures provide an excellent grounding in topics such as health, nutrition, factory farming, environmental impact, and related subjects. The cooking demonstrations include grains, legumes, tofu, tempeh, seitan, and more. Past class members have told us that VEG 101 has changed their lives!
