NY Public Library Gets Dirty With Amanda Cohen

This coming Monday, January 14th, Dirt Candy maker Amanda, chef and owner of the only restaurant in NYC that is 100% things that grow from the ground update: committed to vegetables, but not in a mental institution sort-of way, is speaking at the New York Public Library. From Amanda, “Actually, all three of us who worked on the cookbook will be talking: I’ll be going on and on about vegetables and restaurants, my husband will be running his mouth about the history of vegetarianism and NYC’s legacy of lost vegetarian restaurants, and artist Ryan Dunlavey will be using interpretive dance to discuss graphic novels, cartooning, food, and where all three intersect. It’s free, and open to the public.”

    The phrase “the only restaurant in NYC that is 100% things that grow from the ground” is inaccurate. I’m not sure how that doesn’t apply to many other vegan restaurants (unless they use sea vegetables, I guess), but Dirty Candy uses a lot of dairy. I don’t want to be the vegan police, but a revision/clarification is probably in order.

    What Joe said. I’d call Dirt Candy one of the few restaurants that gets loads of vegan love but ISN’T 100% things that grow from the ground.

    My sincerest apologies! I have updated the post to reflect this correction. Dirt Candy is a vegetarian restaurant, not a vegan one. Thanks so much for pointing this out to me! Yay readers!

    Would LOVE to go to this – but got a question you guys may or may not know the answer to this. I don’t have the cook book (le gasp!) will they be…selling cook books there? I mean it’s a library and all so…maybe they don’t do that kind of thing? I’m just wondering….
