If you prefer leafy greens to green beer, mark your calendar for March 17, when Conscious Bite Out hosts a St. Patrick’s Day alternative, an interactive dinner and raw-chefs competition.
Organized by Peace ’a Cake bakery’s Veronica Menin and holistic-health counselor Marcela Llodra, the event features chefs John Schott (Lifefood Gourmet), Lisa Valle (Green Wave) and Jonathan Gambino (The Beautiful Necessity).
Set for 7:30 p.m. at 100 NE 25th St., Miami, it will include a cocktail hour with acai mojitos and an organic wine tasting, a four-course, sit-down vegan meal and cooking demonstrations. Diners will vote for their favorite chef and be entered in a drawing for a private cooking session with the winner. Cost is $85, with wines available for purchase.
