Vegan Cookies Take Over Your… Shoe Store?

On Tuesday night, Moo Shoes (New York’s favorite vegan shoe store) played host to the cookie event of the year. Veteran vegan cookbook authors Terry Hope Romero and Isa Chandra Moskowitz were on site for the official release party of their latest joint effort, Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. Festivities began with passed finger foodstuffs from Brooklyn’s own Foodswings, including various chick’n sandwiches and the cutest mini corn dogs you ever saw. The feature food, though, was of course cookies! Baked by the guests of honor themselves, offerings of at least eight kinds included a soft and chewy rocky road cookie, a mouthwateringly moist sweet potato blondie, and a classic New York black and white shrunk down to bite size.

After a doting and thorough introduction by longtime friend Eric “the awesome guy” Weiss, Terry and Isa took the makeshift stage to thank the crowd for years of support. More than a few who were in attendance have been following the duo since the days of their public access cooking show, “The Post Punk Kitchen,” and their following has grown astronomically with such hits as Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World and Veganomicon. When asked what’s next, Isa responded without a second thought, “more books!”

The ladies then retired to a very professional table at the back of the store where enthusiastic fans literally lined up for the privilege of a signature. The space was packed with friends and admirers who spent a few happy hours munching the amazing cookies, sipping wine and Almond Breeze, and discussing all things vegan. The party went on until well after 9pm when we were kicked to the curb – left to dream of cookies past and plan for cookies future, signed books in hand and ready for action.

    What a great evening of fun, food, cookies, and shoes! Always nice to see the vegan community supporting each other so effortlessly: the launch provided a terrific opportunity to shop for shoes and MooShoes provided a fine opportunity to taste VCIYCJ offerings from the hands of the authors. Foodswings’ delicious contributions were a generous bonus to assuage the guilt of eating cookies for dinner.

    Exactly! It was a wonderful coming-together of several great offerings from NYC’s vegan community – as well as so many of its members! And people totally did shop for shoes all night long. ;)

    Melissa,

    You really called me “the awesome guy”… Yikes!

    Glad I got your name straight now… it was awesome to meet so many folks last night but all the new names confused my brain.

    What a fun night.

    Reason #3 to miss living in New York. (#1 is Lula’s Sweet Apothecary. #2 is all the benches and public spaces.)
