Sweet Image Photography 1

Thank you again to Marisa Poselovich of Sweet Image Photography for taking photos all day at Rochester VegFest 2018 and sharing them freely.

What a gift that we can have these shared memories, and that we didn’t have to worry about taking a lot of photos.

Below is the first batch she has sent us, from setup into the first hours.  For the second (final) batch click here.

Laughing Gull Chocolates

Many thanks for Laughing Gull Chocolates’ raffle basket donation sliding over the plate for a photo finish into our big raffle Saturday!

They sell ethically-sourced artisan chocolates that are made in their shop on East Main St. and have many vegan options available including all their drinks, select truffles, dipped fruits and bark.

The basket contained some of their products and a certificate for a chocolate making workshop (where you can create vegan chocolate ganache in a variety of flavors!).

What is Lori’s bringing to VegFest?

Here’s what!

  • 3 kinds of Organic Grilled Carrot Dogs on GF Buns
    • Bánh mì (spicy mayo, cucumber, carrots, mint)
    • Nacho (cheese, red onion, jalapeno)
    • New Yorker (spicy brown mustard, grilled onions, sauerkraut)
  • Organic Black Bean and Walnut Sliders on GF Rolls
  • Organic Southern Style Collards and Cornbread
  • Organic Maharini Dahl (Indian Red Split Pea Stew)
  • Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Mini Frosted Cookie Cakes
  • Lori-Ohs! Sandwich Cookies

Wow!

No cat included, but we will be adding a cold can of Zevia, a shelf-stable bottle of Good Karma flax milk, and a little something from Lori’s Natural Foods!
