Next Sunday, November 1, we celebrate World Vegan Day, a lifestyle that is gaining more and more fans around the world. Six São Paulo restaurants have come together to promote Vegan Cuisine Week, November 1-8. They are: Carrito Orgânico, Teva, Homa, Quincho and Capim Santo, in São Paulo, and the recently opened Origin 75, in Vinhedo. I know the São Paulo team and can say that these are houses that have creative cuisine with stimulating and tasty dishes, no tasteless cuisine here.
Each chef created a special menu with a vegan starter, main course and dessert based on recipes from the Culinary Vegan book, by French chef Jean-Christian Jury (R $ 239). The book is published by Ernest Books and contains 588 recipes from 143 countries spread over 478 pages.
Menus will be available in restaurants and also by delivery during the week of the event – the book can also be purchased in restaurants during this time. Know the menu of some participating houses:
