This week, we’re talking vegan food. 88% of Americans surveyed by the National Turkey Federation eat turkey on Thanksgiving. 46 million turkeys are eaten each Thanksgiving and 22 million on Christmas. And meanwhile according to research by GlobalData, there’s been a 600% increase in people identifying as vegans in the US in the last 3 years.
So as we head into the holidays, you may be looking for more ethical or healthy, non-meat options for your upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners OR maybe you have a friend or family member that you need to cater for. Never fear. We’ve got Justin Gorski (pictured above with his family), co-founder and head chef at Cleveland Vegan Café and Catering to tempt you with some really easy modifications to traditional holidays dishes that are vegan and vegetarian friendly.
We also highlight a number of opportunities to Shop Local on Black Friday! And we have music from Wildflowers – a new Cleveland band playing at Stella’s Music Club on November 30th. And The Dreemers, a trio from Akron who will be playing The Grog Shop on November 24th.
