Summer Members-Only Event:  International Vegetarian Cooking 

SUNDAY, July 16, 2017 – 4:00 to 7:00 PM at the Ladies’ Literary Club of Ypsilanti, 218 North Washington Street, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48197

Every culture has vegetarian dishes – whether by force or by design – and many have excelled at vegetarian cookery.  Even cultures with heavy meat consumption have non-meat dishes – be it coleslaw, mashed potatoes, bread or just boiled beans.  By cooking with only vegetables we ought not to feel we are limiting our choice of foods, but that we are expanding into an almost limitless variety of foodstuffs and dishes.  Let’s celebrate summer’s early harvest with fresh vegetables that are available locally and with the amazing array we find in our grocery stores and supermarkets.  By “vegetarian” we mean no red meats, poultry, fish or seafood.
        Reservations and checks should be sent by US Mail to Phil Zaret.  Please make your reservation for this members-only event as soon as you can. Click for a downloadable reservation form and for more information.
