Last night I kicked off my “Week of Vegan Food” at the "Summer Vegan Hands-on Cooking Class" with Chef Jenn Felmley at Sea Rocket Bistro! Sea Rocket is known for their focus on local & sustainable foods, so of course, many of the items & vegetables provided for the class were organic & sourced from local farms like Suzie’s Farm, my CSA!
Chef Jenn in Action!
Much like the vegan cooking class my Mom & I took at Sur La Table several months ago, the participants were broken up into small groups of 4, with each group tackling 1 recipe. Each recipe had a designated station with all of the ingredients & necessary gadgets at our fingertips. While each group prepped, Chef Jenn was available to give demonstrations, answer questions, & give advice.
Lots of Prepping…
And More Prepping!
Then everything started to come together!
"Quick Dill Pickled Vegetables"
"New England Style Baked Cannellini Beans"
"Green & Burgandy Bean & Potato Salad" with Herb Dijon Dressing
"Homemade Vegan Burgers" served with all the fixings on Bread & Cie vegan ciabatta
"Strawberry Cornmeal Galette" served with Vanilla-Coconut Whipped Cream
"Cheers" to Chef Jenn & the group for all of our hard work!
After 2 hours of prepping we were able to enjoy a craft beer & the “vegan” fruits of our labor! Our meal included a special beer paring of “Green Flash Brewing Co’s Extra Special Bitter Beer.”
The class was awesome & the meal was lovely! What a great summer menu! I learned some great tips & techniques, & left with a full belly & a handful of new vegan recipes that I cannot wait to re-create at home! As I do, I will share the recipes with you here!
This class was so popular that Sea Rocket will be hosting another vegan cooking class on August 29, 2011. Chef Jenn also offers private chef services, cooking parties & teaches classes at other locations around San Diego - including a vegetarian Urban Farm Class that I am hoping to attend!

I love it! With so many great things going on around town I think “Vegan San Diego” is finally on the map! Here is another great event to add to your calendar!
