About Vegan Street Fair Los Angeles 2015
Vegan Street Fair is an annual vegan food celebration where local vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants and vendors come together to serve you bite-size portions of vegan eats all in one place. The best part? All bite-size portions are $3 max and entrance is FREE. At VSF, you get to nosh on as many local eats as your heart desires (and your belly can hold) for street fair prices. So instead of buying a $10 plate of vegan nachos and sitting out the rest of the amazing food experiences, you get bites from one vendor, move on to the next, and enjoy all of your city’s BEST vegan eats without getting full for a fraction of the price of a regular meal. VSF is the true vegan foodie dream- EAT ALL THE VEGAN THINGS.
I was invited to officially be a Vegan blogger for Vegan street fair los Angeles 2015 first annual event!
My badge is soo awesome!!!

Who was there?
Since the company’s inception as a family business in 1975, AFC believes the values of a family are what make a solid foundation; that living a healthy lifestyle starts off with what you put in your body; and how generational changes may arise but to never forget to reflect on classic traditions. By promoting the health benefits of soy through product innovation and sponsoring community events around Southern California, the company strives to educate consumers and pass on the vision of living a healthy lifestyle to the future generations to come.AFC uses only the freshest and highest quality ingredients in its products and sources non-genetically modified organisms (NON-GMO) soybeans grown in the United States. In addition, the organic soy products produced use only Certified-Organic soybeans. Furthermore, all of the soy products manufactured have no additives or preservatives. AFC has been in the food industry for nearly forty years and is well known in the Asian-American community, but it is the company’s goal to introduce the goodness of soy to all other communities nationwide.

When all six of Azla’s children transitioned to a vegetarian lifestyle over a decade ago-she began modifying traditional recipes to accomodate their growing health consciousness-without sacrificing flavor and heartiness. Azla’s Sunday dinners became a focal point for friends and extended family, and she dreamed of one day extending her love for cooking beyond her family’s dinner table. In the summer of 2013, head chef Azla joined forces with her youngest daughter, Nesanet to open the first Ethiopian restaurant in South Los Angeles. Azla’s culinary expertise and commitment to traditional wisdom is complemented by Nesanet’s extensive studies and work in the education, wellness, and marketing industries. Nesanet’s training in Biological Sciences at Stanford University and UCLA, her studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and yoga instructor certification greatly inform ingredient choices and food preparation techniques at Azla. Azla vegan offers inventive interpretations of traditional Ethiopian fare, drawing upon the best of California vegan cuisine with an emphasis on local, organic produce. In addition to serving delicious, nutrient-dense food to Angelenos, Azla’s mission is to inspire a return to the ceremonious nature of breaking bread with friends and family, while offering convenience and easy access.

Thank You VSF!Wow, what an amazing turn out for Vegan Street Fair! I was shocked at how much support the vegan community of LA showed even during the cold rainy weather.

Colbaaar bought me the razor tank top that says:
Best Gumbo in the Hood
After 20+ years of studying, sampling, and perfecting my gumbo recipes, I now share my gumbo with others through my company, Best Gumbo In The Hood. My Vegan Gumbo debuted in July 2014 at the First Annual Vegan Faire in Anaheim. Downtown Santa Ana (DTSA) Farmers’ Market vegan and non-vegan patrons have sampled and purchased the Vegan Gumbo (considered the “New Tradition”), which is made of traditional flavorful roux and does not contain any animal products. My gumbo is available for purchase.
Unfortunately the lines were too enormous!
When we moved to Los Angeles in 2011, we scoured half the state looking for palatable vegan cheese. We found nothing, which was surprising, considering we basically moved to vegan heaven. Everything in the stores tried so hard to be a replication of dairy cheese. This was disappointing, because we knew that approach doesn’t work. Vegan cheeses never melted right. They either tasted sour or bland instead of sharp and savory. The textures were never close to matching dairy cheese. As is always the case with imitations, nothing was very appetizing. That is a lesson that we learned long ago, and it guides us whenever we step foot in the kitchen. When we started the journey to make our own vegan cheese, we knew we had to make something that was true to itself and delicious in its own right. We re-imagined vegan cheese as its own thing, and not something that pretended to be something it is not. We knew we would not sacrifice deliciousness in the name of creating a “better imitation”. Why do so many people like dairy cheese? It’s creamy, savory and sharp. It can vary in texture and it pairs well with all sorts of food. Those are great characterstics for a food item to have, so we tried to create something with those qualities, just with healthy vegan ingredients. We take great care in choosing the ingredients. Due to the legality of a particularly nasty pesticide, Endosulfan, in many cashew-producing countries, we have an unyielding commitment to using only organic cashews for our base. We also believe that food tastes better whenever you know where it’s coming from, so we always source naturally, organically and locally whenever possible. We care about connecting with people through food. We hope that when you enjoy our food, you will be able to experience the joy, the passion, and the love that we put into making it. We’ve heard our friends say that our cheese is “addictive”, and we take that as a compliment. But, to be honest, “addiction” doesn’t mesh with our philosophy. We hope you can mindfully share in our creation. But if you just want to devour our yummy vegan cheese, we totally understand 🙂 Be well,Maxi Mueller & Doug MeyerCo-FoundersBlöde Kuh Artisan Vegan Tree Nut Cheese
What was served
Cashew-based cheese with gluten free pretzel crackers.
There was two lines and it started raining! I definitely still would love to try this cashew cheese!

It all began in Brittany’s kitchen…
Cruelty-free since 2005
Brittany went vegan when she was 17 years old. There were no restaurants in her city that she could eat at, so she had to make all of her own food. It started off rocky, eating a lot of french fries and burritos but eventually turned things around and took a healthier approach to her meals. She would later become a bartender and bring her own lunch to work as she could not eat anything at most of the places she was employed. Customers would ask questions about the kind of food she was eating and she was more than happy to share with them. The customers would then ask her to make food for them all the time and although she enjoyed feeding them, it was breaking the bank so she had to start charging them. This is when she decided she wanted to feed people on a larger scale, introducing people to a healthy vegan lifestyle and to start catering. Since the business started in August of 2014, it has been growing substantially; catering business meetings, parties, showers, weddings, and participating in vegan fairs!
