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
