This past weekend we were fortunate enough to participate in the Alternative Car Expo in Santa Monica. We dominated that Expo really, being the only food there, other than the free Cliff Bars they were giving away. It’s a rare occurrence for Jennie Cooks to serve thousands of people, (no really, thousands!) in one weekend. And I’m pretty sure we’re still recovering. At least I know I am. And I didn’t even have to go into the shop at 2am both days to start the cookin’, Thanks Chefs!
Not only did we host a Jennie Cooks Vegan Cafe inside the Civic Auditorium for all Expo Participants..
But we also were grilling sliders and brochettes for General Motors.
Our servers were also tray passing the appetizers and attending a beverage bar for people waiting to test drive the new Chevy Volt. Their tent was by far the most elaborate set up in the joint.
Big shout out to CODA who had a few our staff serving juice drinks in their booth as well. They were a pretty popular destination, seeing as it is the first Chinese electric vehicle to be showcased in the States.
I’m not the biggest fan of the electric car and its lithium battery, but the expo was still pretty impressive. My favorite part was the half naked man riding his bike in his American Flag Speedo (Sorry no pictures are available) and our Chickpea Salad Sandwiches being sold in the cafe! The “chickpea of the sea” as some vegans like to call it…
