American author and journalist Michael Pollan, on the subject of living, once wrote: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Upon this idea, FoodWISE started an initiative called Meat Free Mondays. No, we aren’t going all vegetarian (or activist) on you, but we thought that the notion of celebrating dishes that are whole and inspiring on their own (without meat) is a notion worth exploring.
So this December 9, we’re hosting a Meat Free Monday banquet. Featuring a delicious 8 course experience, including tempura zucchini flowers with aged soy and citrus, through to organic soba noodles with mush room dashi, nori and crispy garlic, we challenge you to look at the wonderful world of vegetable produce we have at our fingertips here on the south coast…it’s truly amazing!
