Vegan Academy Prelude

(The Heart is a Compass; Victoria Moran’s Main Street Vegan Academy.)

I’m in New York City this week for Main Street Vegan Academy, which began with a glorious dinner (chickpea and green bean curry, lemon broccoli, lovely fresh salad with shitake mushrooms, raw chocolate cake and non-dairy ice cream) and a very informative lecture by Dr. Robert Ostfeld of Montefiore Medical Center.

But before that, I got to have lunch at Pure Food and Wine with my lovely agent and my new editor at St. Martin’s! We shared a plate of guacamole and a celebratory bottle of white wine. Such a treat. I also found out that they sold the rights in Italy, so Bones & All will be translated into my ancestral tongue. My grandpa would be proud.

Portabella and hemp seed burger. Sprouted manna bread, caraway kraut, lapsang souchong tea smoked cashew cheese, house made mustard, pickled pink onions. The “cheese” was my favorite part. More filling than it looks!

Plenty more MSVA-related posts coming up! I’m already having a ball, and I can’t wait to share it all with you.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
