Korean Dave’s Life Changing Tempha

Do you know this guy? He makes the best tempha in all the land. He sells at most of the Los Angeles Farmer’s Markets and his staff is GREAT! I love them all.

We  order a special size for the catering company, fry it up with a triple vegan dip, and make the best schnitzel with apples. A dreamy plant based indulgence.

And we do a lovely grilled Campania with caramelized onions and peppers, finished with balsamic reduction. Oh, I Love this.

It’s made with black beans and brown rice. The texture is smooth and it’s often been compared to calamari, only better. The boxes at the Farmer’s Markets contain 2 servings each, and a box is 450 calories, according to Robb, who knows all there is to know about these Artisan food products.

Find this booth, taste everything and take food home. It’s all delicious, and the easiest way to eat fermented food everyday. Don’t forget to try the healing broth with the vegetable chop. I cannot get enough. Go now, and eat.

The Villages Book Tour in Florida

It’s time to throw it back to May 2014, when I spent the week with my Aunties in The Villages doing a book tour. I must say, it was the most fun ever, and I wanted to move in.  Everyday was a party and the preferred mode of transportation was a golf cart. So fun!

I started with a tasting and signing at The Ancient Olive. The crowd was totally into it, and  the turnout was fantastic. Here we are just getting started.

Then, my Aunt Millie and Aunt Lynne hosted a wonderful dinner party. We cooked all the favorites with a little help from their friends, and had around sixty guests. It was a sellout!  I sold every book we had shipped in!  It was glorious!

I made labels of course to make the food look extra delicious.

That’s my cousin Jennie and Aunt Millie, it’s her eldest child. My mom’s name is Jennie and there’s another cousin named Jennie. It’s one of our tribe names. Here we are doing a little post party clean up. I’m already in my cozy clothes.

Here are some of the happy party people.  Somethings (like rabbit ears) never get old. That’s my Aunt Lynne on the far right. It was simply a spectacular visit. Thank you Aunties, for showing me the love and a super fun family holiday.
