Priscilla Feral, president of local animal sanctuary Primarily Primates, will be signing copies of her recently released cookbook, the Best of Vegan Cooking, 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5, at Green, SA’s award-winning vegetarian HQ. The event, hosted by the San Antonio Vegetarian Society, includes an all-vegan buffet for only $10 and the opportunity to join in a discussion with Feral, who is also president of Friends of Animals, a non-profit, international, animal-advocacy organization. All proceeds from sales of Feral’s cookbook, which she describes as a collection of recipes for “high-quality vegan food with an emphasis on Italian cuisine,” will go directly toward funding for both Friends of Animals and Primarily Primates. Copies of the cookbook will be available for $20.
Feral is also making an appearance on FOX 29’s Fox News First Thursday morning, along with Green chef and co-owner Mike Behrend, to share recipes from the cookbook. On increasing the appeal of vegan food, Feral says, “Serving people wonderful, appealing-looking food can get them hooked. Then one backs that up with the logic and ethics behind the choice. It’s not a sacrifice to commit to a plant-based diet. It’s both sensible and luxurious.” Go to greensanantonio.com for info.
