Vegan 101: Kitchen tips from a chef
By JL Fields on March 14, 2011
I am thrilled to bring another great blogger to the Vegan 101 series! The purpose of this series is to serve as a resource for new vegans, or those considering going vegan, as well as those of us who could use a few new tips or a refresher.
As I have posted previously, in my pre-vegan days I didn’t spend much time in the kitchen. I had a lot to learn and I turned to vegan cookbooks and blogs. Last summer I started reading Daily Garnish (back then it was known as The Front Burner) and was hooked reading Emily’s descriptions of her cooking adventures on an organic farm — the last step in earning her culinary arts degree. Emily’s writing is so encouraging and persuasive that five minutes after reading her A Girl and Her Rice Cooker: A Love Story. post I ordered my own rice cooker!
I consider Emily a virtual mentor. I asked her to contribute to this series because she demystifies the cooking process for me. She makes me believe that I can cook anything.
