Food Not Bombs Night (1/29)

This week's guest chef will be Leif Hedendal, formerly of Greens Restaurant and chef for Noise in My Kitchen, The Secret Cafe, and other underground restaurant projects. He will also be cooking for a benefit for the documentary, In Search of Good Food, on February 7th at Million Fishes Art Collective. Leif can be contacted at cavolonero@gmail.

Leif's menu will showcase seasonal produce from his favorite local farmers, including Blossom Bluff Orchards, Dirty Girl Produce, Full Belly, Star Route, and County Line. Leif has elected to donate a portion of his proceeds to the local Food Not Bombs, an all-volunteer global movement that shares free vegetarian meals as a protest to war and poverty. MSF will follow suit.

If you added pork to each of those dishes, they might be interesting!

SO EXCITED FOR THIS!

Melisser said...

How much of this is vegan friendly?

Mission Street Food said...

Good question.
Four of the menu items will be vegan this week: the olives, the yuba package, the cauliflower, and the coconut sorbet.
I've updated the menu to reflect that.

Mission Street Food said...

We really appreciate the eagerness to get started, but let's plan for a 6pm opening--we have other jobs and we need the time before 6 to convert Lung Shan into Mission Street Food.
