New York City’s James Beard House—part of the nonprofit culinary organization James Beard Foundation—recently launched a monthly vegan dinner series featuring various chefs from around the country. The dinner series will offer themed evenings each month until June. February’s Classic French Vegan by chef Brian Loiacono, for example, will offer dishes such as Winter Vegetable Petits Farcis, Tartelette aux Champignons (mushroom tartlet with black garlic and mochi), and Poire au Concombre (poached bosc pear with cucumber sorbet and black sesame crumble). Other themed evenings include NYC Glamour in March, Vegan Pioneer in April, Pacific Northwest Vegan in May, and Seasonal Summer Vegan in June. Last year, the James Beard House hosted an all-vegan dinner featuring female vegan chefs, winemakers, and proprietors in celebration of International Women’s Day.
