Let’s Talk Spices, New on YouTube

One of the things I love to talk about is food history. It’s no secret I’ve spent many, many hours reading and researching where the food comes from. I got the opportunity in January at the Arizona VegFest to share some food history. I gave this talk on the history of spices, where they come from and why some of them are on our baking racks instead in our savory recipes.

The month of January rolls around and in Southern Arizona, it’s a chilly 40 degrees at 9 am. The time volunteers arrive and start setting up for the Arizona Vegetarian Food Festival.

This is the second year for this event run by U.S. Veg Corp, an event company out of New York City. They also produce the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, and are working on adding a third event for Southern California next fall.

Roosevelt Row Chile Festival

I recently attended the 4th Ave Roosevelt Row Chile Festival here in Phoenix, AZ. While there was no program that listed time of events, including the chef demos, there were many food vendors with unexpected vegan options.

Here in the Southwest we celebrate the blend of chilies and chocolate, a combination that was the pride of the Aztecs and was in abundance at the Festival. My favorite coffee shop, Urban Beans, dished up a chili dipped in chocolate. While the fresno pepper lacked fiery heat, it was certainly tasty to bite into with the soft and creamy chocolate. They also brought their famous pulled jackfruit tacos with a creamy cashew chipotle sauce called Chipolte Pleezsh. The onions were slow sautéed and mixed in with the heartiness of jackfruit. It was the superior veg fare I’ve come to love from them.
