    Chef Matteo and the Samburu warriors pose for pictures in the Saveur test kitchen.

    How do four African warriors become the guests of honor at a private gourmet vegan lunch at the New York City office of one of the most-beloved food magazines around?

    About a decade ago, former advertising executive Jane Newman set out on an epic adventure. But when her car broke down in Kenya and warriors in full tribal gear emerged from the bush, she didn’t know what to expect. It certainly wasn’t for the chief to ask her, in perfect English, if she needed help and to invite her to stay with his tribe until her car was fixed. So began Jane’s odyssey with the Samburu, whose kindness she’s spent the last decade repaying by raising money, through the Thorn Tree Project, for food and clothing, dormitories and educational materials so that the nomadic people’s children can attend school.

    In New York for a fund-raiser at Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Center this Thursday, Chief George and three of his warriors visited our office at Saveur magazine yesterday and enjoyed what for them was an incredibly unusual feast, worlds away from their staple of cow’s blood and milk (yes, cow’s blood and milk).

  2. Vegan craft samples

    Holy craft, Batman!

    If your mom ever made an excellent treasure hunt for you and your greedy, unappreciative siblings, you remember how tingly your toes and fingers got when you finally reached the treasure chest full of whoknowswhat. Now you can have that transcendent shivery feeling and a box of crafty vegan surprise in the mail, and you don’t have to share them…or fish clues out of the toilet.

    It’s All in the Bag is providing that service. Buy a bag of vegan, handmade crafts for $15 (small), $25 (medium), or $35 (large holiday bag, now sold out) from their website and receive a mixed bag of vegan sample stuff donated by crafters on Etsy. All profits from the bags go to Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary out in Deer Trail, Colorado. (Oh, check out their site! It is so pretty and soft and delicate and just like being in the womb!) So what’s not to like? Continue Reading…

  3. We blogged it a few weeks ago, but this is worth another mention. If you are anywhere near New York City, and you care at all about animal issues, you are a fool and a loser if you don’t visit Banksy’s “Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill” at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street.

    The shop touches on humans’ exploitation of animals for food, chemical and behavioral testing, fur, and entertainment. I’ve never been a big fan of Banksy’s drawing/stencil work, but this show is just great, conceptually technologically, and aesthetically. It’s subversive and clever, sure, but also quite touching and unnerving.

    It’s great how it’s just a store-front. I suspect most visitors stumbled upon the place, rather than seeking it out. Even if you don’t think you like or understand fine art, you’ll be OK here. It’s just a mock store, with animatronics, just like at Disneyland.

    The show closes on October 31st, Halloween. The price and the hours are friendly–free admission, open 10am-midnight. Go!

    (There’s lots more there than what’s in the video.)

  4. Free Range Nuggets

    Free Range Nuggets

    Guerrilla artist Banksy has opened his first official exhibition in New York yesterday. “Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill” is at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street. The fake pet shop he’s created aims to question “our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming.”

    The BBC has more photos and full info and video is available from Wooster Collective. Finally, an art exhibit that I care enough to go see. Take that Damien Hirst, you sick bastard.

    I’ll post a full report after I pay a visit to the exhibit, which runs until October 31st and is open daily from 10am until midnight.
