It was quite an event. I was told, "This is the best Thanksgiving I've ever had" for the second year in a row. Michael Arnstein ran a marathon to get prepared for all the food that he knew we'd be sharing ! (He attended last year and knew we were serious when we provided two full meals.) With close to 40 people in attendance, I was really excited to share all that I have been doing with Jourdan's Beautiful Food with those not able to come to the farmers market or who had not ordered our bulk shipping boxes yet.
We brought the fruit. 100's of lbs of Florida Tropical fruit was served. Everything from Praying hands bananas (see below) to passion fruit. When asked how I managed to get all the fruit up to NYC from Florida, I was proudly able to say that I used my bulk shipping service that customers use every week. Here we were, in 40 degree weather, able to enjoy Jackfruit, Mamey and other tropicals.
For Jourdan's Beautiful Food, this was the coming out party for our prepared fruit and vegetable dishes. We had everything from Sushi to Ice Cream. Everything is raw vegan and low fat. All prepared from whole foods. We are not using salt, cacao, large quantities of nuts, oils, honey, etc...
Please chime in with your experiences everyone and feel free to post pictures!!
Favorite quote: Jourdan, this was by far THE BEST LFRV/Fruitarian/811 food event I've ever been to. I was speechless at the quality level of your fruit, care,
prep, planning and generosity with everyone. I can't express my
gratitude enough for putting this event together. My wife and kids had
the best time ever! This was a real Thanksgiving!!
