The Sexy Vegan: Food porn, spider moments, and cooking videos that make you laugh out loud. Plus, our Vida Vegan Con recap.
We talk with Chef Brian Patton of TheSexyVegan.com, and author of the upcoming The Sexy Vegan Cookbook. Brian tells us about his transformation from a pizza eating college student who didn’t even know how to cook spaghetti, to a vegan chef who shares his funny and irreverent cooking videos and recipes with the world.
We bring you a recap of Vida Vegan Con, a vegan bloggers conference we attended recently in Portland, and catch up with Matt Collins of Whole Foods Market in Bend about their fundraising project that’s putting gardens into schools.
