Arizona Vegetarian Food FestivalNext weekend you can find me cooking “Breakfast in the Afternoon” at the first annual Arizona Vegetarian Food Festival. Cooking in front of crowds is a favorite thing of mine. Although I don’t favor open kitchens (where cooks have to produce constantly while patrons look on), I do like to put on a good cooking demo.

When I found out that Arizona was to have our first Vegetarian Festival ever, I knew I must participate. The information came across my virtual desktop while we were traveling across the United States from Arizona to Kansas. Fortunately the Festival will be held in Scottsdale, a town adjacent to Phoenix, and very close to the last restaurant I worked at. After a few emails were exchanged I had secured a slot with the producers of this event. I’d like to thank Chef Jason Wyrick for sharing the link that led to this fantastic event.

I am grateful for the opportunity and look forward to seeing familiar faces and making new friends. You can purchase tickets at the website, and there is a groupon purchase available. The Phoenix New Times is also giving away VIP tickets. Check out how you can win.
