(The panelists and the chefs talking about the dishes that they were presenting for the night.)

If you follow the technology industry, you are probably familiar with TechCrunch Disrupt, an event that showcases the most revolutionary and disruptive start-ups.

Well, the organic food industry now has its own version of this event called Tofu Disrupt.

While Tofu Disrupt does not put the spotlight on emerging tofu brands, its goal is to disrupt our preconceived notions of what tofu is and to make this a much more mainstream ingredient.

Hosted and conceived by Minh Tsai, my good friend and founder of Hodo Soy Beanery, the country’s leading artisinal organic tofu brand, Tofu Disrupt was first held last year in San Francisco. On Monday night, it hosted its second event, this time in New York City at the International Culinary Center, and I had the very good fortune of being able to attend. Read more »

A Fantastic Evening at Exhibit C in NYC with Mind Travel

Last week, I attended my first event at the newly-opened Exhibit C, the brainchild of acclaimed vegan chef Daphne Cheng. Located in New York City’s Lower East Side, Exhibit C is not a restaurant nor is it your standard event space. To be honest, I had trouble wrapping my arms around exactly what this place was until […]

Last week, I attended my first event at the newly-opened Exhibit C, the brainchild of acclaimed vegan chef Daphne Cheng.

Located in New York City’s Lower East Side, Exhibit C is not a restaurant nor is it your standard event space. To be honest, I had trouble wrapping my arms around exactly what this place was until I experienced it first-hand.

On her website, Daphne Cheng describes it as: a food-as-art gallery, a kitchen classroom, a recipe laboratory, a culinary incubator, a never-ending celebration of food. Read more »

Two of My Favorite Emerging Beverage Brands - Rawpothecary and LuliTonix

Unless you live in the New York area and are immersed in the health and wellness world, there is a decent chance that you’ve never heard of Rawpothecary or LuliTonix. But that won’t be the case for long, as I expect both of these brands to become very recognizable, national players within a matter of time. Having closely […]

Unless you live in the New York area and are immersed in the health and wellness world, there is a decent chance that you’ve never heard of Rawpothecary or LuliTonix.

But that won’t be the case for long, as I expect both of these brands to become very recognizable, national players within a matter of time.

Having closely watched Rawpothecary and LuliTonix over the past year, I not only love what they’re putting on the shelves, but the women behind each of these NYC-based companies are two of the hardest-working entrepreneurs I’ve come across.
