New England is one of my favorite parts of this country. I love the cool fall weather, the great beaches, the people, and the food. It’s where I spent my college years and where I have many great memories.

Vegan Gastronomy Weekend – Philly Burbs

Sunday lunch by Lydia

It finally feels like spring here in southeastern PA and that makes us feel like dancing, singing and eating lots of good vegan food.

Vegan Gatronomy Trip: London, UK

Vantra, London, UK

The day I received an email from my husband telling me we were going to London, I immediately got excited for another gastronomy trip.

We last visited Jim’s parents in North Carolina about a year and a half ago. It was during the summer and the perfect time to be at the beach.

Vegan isn’t the first word I would associate with North Carolina, home to... Read More

Game on! Day 1 First Stop... Read More

Chris Lucas, Fran Costigan, Lydia Grossov

Chocolate mousse cake When you think of chocolate, what comes to your mind? Hershey’s kisses in your lunchbox? Biting desperately into a hollow chocolate bunny from a decorated basket on Easter morning? A melty birthday cake your mom made on your 7th birthday? Chances are, your memories are deep-seated and concentrated, most likely from childhood. This is one of the flavors you... Read More

Vegan Gastronomy Weekend – NY

Terri's Tofu Scramble with Vegan Saussage

Last January the From A to Vegan crew headed out to NYC for a weekend of observation, art illumination, professional enrichment and vegan degustation.
