Vegan Chef Tal Ronnen Partakes in Zurich Food Fest

Luxury hotel Baur au Lac to host “Crossroads Meats Our Veggies” event from September 9-17.

As part of the first annual Food Zürich festival, luxury hotel Baur au Lac will host an event with renowned vegan chef Tal Ronnen called “Crossroads Meats Our Veggies” from September 9 to 17. Ronnen’s four-course menu will include Mediterranean specialties such as Agnolotti with Sundried Tomatoes and Almond Ricotta and Pumpkin Cream Soup. The inspiration for the collaboration came from a visit that Baur au Lac chef Olivier Rais paid to Ronnen’s restaurant Crossroads in West Hollywood, CA. Ronnen, a New York Times best-selling cookbook author who has appeared on popular television programs such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show, agreed to participate in the Switzerland food fest, which features more than 50 events at restaurants, hotels, and food companies throughout Zürich. Reservations for “Crossroads Meats Our Veggies” are now available.
