Vegan "Iron Chef" Competition!
From Michael Greger, M.D. - [email protected]

This year is the 30th annual Vegetarian Summerfest to be held July 21-25, and the festive folks at NAVS, the North American Vegetarian Society, have quite an extravaganza planned. The Summerfest has always been a fantastic family-friendly five-day feast of cutting-edge educational sessions (at last year's Summerfest I broke my speaking record-13 talks in 4 days!), entertainment, and good wholesome vegan food. But this year they are going to outdo themselves.

First off, how about a vegan "Iron Chef" style cookoff? It's going to be me and Howard Lyman versus professional Chefs Ken Bergeron (winner of a mere 3 Gold Medals at the International Culinary Olympics) and restaurant owner Cathi DiCoco. Looks like the two mad cowboys are going to have to kick some Bergeron butt. :)

And if that wasn't enough, I just got word that I can finally let the carrot out of the bag--the original vegan M.D., Dr. Michael Klaper, is returning to Summerfest for the first time in years to unveil the preliminary results of his ground-breaking Vegan Health Study. We're hoping to do some joint sessions-the two Dr. Michael's tag-teaming! It's going to be quite an event. And you heard it here first! Go to to register.
