All dishes must be completely vegan – no exceptions. Food must not contain any flesh (fish, fowl or beast), eggs, dairy products or honey. This rule guarantees that everyone can eat everything (allergies & preferences aside).
Please watch out for hidden milk products, such as whey in cookies, crackers, bread and margarine, and casein or caseinate in “non-dairy” soy cheeses and whipped toppings. Some margarines contain gelatin. Also, be alert for eggs in baked goods, mayonnaise in salad dressings, and honey in breads, pastries and preserves.
Please prepare a 4×6 card with: Your name, name of the dish, a list of all the ingredients, and the recipe on the back, indicating where the recipe came from (or if it is original).
Prepare enough to serve eight (8) people.
Please bring your own table setting as well as a serving utensil.
If you don’t feel like cooking, you may bring a green salad, chips & salsa, fruit, or another vegan munchie. Your host will provide drinks.
