Vegan Cooking Class, July 8th in Baltimore


Join Baltimore Vegan Drinks for the second in their “Cooking with Booze” class series and prepare to be wowed by Chef John Shields from Gertrude’s at the BMA. His lesson will include Pea Tendril Pesto with Roasted Heirloom Tomato Polenta Bites, “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Crab Crab Cakes” & Three Mustard Sauce, Lemon Tarts and Baltimore-style Peach Cake.


In the Baltimore area, Chef Shields and Gertrude’s are known for their ability to please every palate – including vegans! Their regular menu includes multiple vegan offerings daily and during weekend brunch events. The zucchini “crab” cakes  (above) are the stuff in legends in both veggie and omnivore circles alike.

Class attendees will be treated to tastings of these dishes and copies of the recipes, as well as other vegan fare and bonus recipes! Local wines will be featured for tasting and as an ingredient. Door prizes will also be part of the event, including aprons and vegan cookbooks – the prizes are a Baltimore Vegan Drinks tradition!


Pre-registration is required and ticketing will close on Monday  July 7th. For tickets, visit http://www.bmorevegan.com/events Tickets for this event are $45.00 per person. This is a STEAL for the expertise of Chef John Shields!!!! Did you know that he has published THREE cookbooks and has more on the way? And he has had TWO nationally broadcasted cooking shows on PBS? Top notch, folks!
