In conjunction with its new expanded House Dining program through food-management company Bon Appétit, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has brought chef Brian McCarthy to campus to educated students about vegan cooking. McCarthy, author of The Vegan Family Cookbook, visited last week to showcase various techniques for meat-free cooking, as well as offer tastings, answer students’ questions, and sign copies of his book. McCarthy started preparing vegan food 17 years ago when his family started eating a plant-based diet. The chef tells MIT News, “When you have kids … you want them to have the apple pie and the chocolate pudding you grew up with. So that’s why it was important to have this vegan cookbook.”
