Vegan Iron Chef Returns to San Francisco

This March, chefs face off in the third annual Vegan Iron Chef competition.

Emceed by past winner and personal chef, Lisa Books-Williams, the festivities include a pre-competition reception, music, a full tasting of the chef's creations (for premium ticket holders), and a celebratory after-party. In 2014, New York chef-sensation Jay Astafa took home the title of Vegan Iron Chef.
