SoFAB FEATURES THE CHUBBY VEGETARIAN COOKING DEMONSTRATION
Saturday, August 12, 2017

WHO/WHAT: The Southern Food & Beverage Museum (SoFAB) presents a special event with, Justin Fox Burks, Chef and Co-Author of The Chubby Vegetarian. Burks will conduct a book signing, cooking demonstration, and sampling of recipes featured in the award-winning cookbook he co-authored with his wife Amy Lawrence,

In 2008, Burks and Lawrence started sharing creative recipes for the home cook when they launched the blog, The Chubby Vegetarian. Their first cookbook, The Southern Vegetarian: 100 Down-Home Recipes for the Modern Table (Thomas Nelson) was released in 2013. The Chubby Vegetarian blog along with Amy and Justin's expertise with vegetarian cuisine was highlighted on "The Great Food Truck Race" on The Food Network, and Justin judged the show's vegetarian challenge in Memphis. Their newest publication, The Chubby Vegetarian (Susan Schadt Press) is a compelling guide to modern vegetarian cuisine and is a game changer for the home cook with innovative recipes re-imagined with vegetables as the star of the plate. Recipes put a unique new spin on vibrant fare from all over the world like Carrot "Lox," Shiitake Ramen, Beet and Goat Cheese Ravioli, Grilled Eggplant Bánh Mì sandwiches, and many more surprising culinary translations. Recipes and work by The Chubby Vegetarian have been highlighted in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Woman's Day, The Kitchn, Local Palate, The Huffington Post, Memphis Magazine, Edible Memphis, and The Memphis Flyer. Find out more at chubbyvegetarian.blogspot.com.

WHEN/WHERE: The program on Saturday, August 12, 2017, begins at 1PM in the Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air. The demonstration is open to the public and complimentary with museum admission. Samples are available on a first come, first served basis. The Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air is located in the Southern Food & Beverage Museum, 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in New Orleans.
