The Vegan Month of Food: An Introduction

The fourth annual installment of Vegan MoFo is upon us. For the next month, bloggers from around the world will be racing between their kitchens and their computers, posting anything and everything related to food AND veganism. There aren't any strict guidelines, but the goal is to write about vegan food every weekday (20 days, total) for the whole MoFo. This year, the Vegan Month of Food (MoFo) takes place during the month of November and will feature writings from hundreds of blogs worldwide. There are going to be culinary contests, veganized family recipes, cookbook addicts, and copious amounts of food porn! You can check out Vegan MoFo Headquarters International for updates throughout the month. If you are interested in participating in MoFo, there is a sign up sheet HERE.

This will be my first year participating in Vegan MoFo and I'm truly excited to be involved with this growing movement. Vegan MoFo has gained recognition by several popular news sources - check out THIS article in VegNews Magazine - and is inspiring so many individuals to highlight the awesome that is Veganism. I'll be blogging from this here ole blog, and I've spent the eve of MoFo working on the perfect theme. The Five-Course Vegan. Each week, I'll be featuring a different meal. Each day, I'll post a different course to that meal. The menu will be created and announced on the Sunday prior to the food being served. Below I've outlined the week's days and I've paired them with an accompanying course. Saturday's will be a free-for-all, and I'll feature giveaways (homemade aprons!), restaurant and product reviews, and probably a trip or two to the Red Stick Farmer's Market.

Monday: Appetizers or an Amuse Bouche
Tuesday: Salad and/or Soup
Wednesday: The Main Course
Thursday: Desserts
Friday: Cocktails of the Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic variety

Please check back (almost) everyday for the next MONTH, as I'll be posting original recipes, luxurious photos, and a few minor treatises on various things vegan (hint: one of them will be on vegan wine!). I'm ecstatic to be participating in the Vegan MoFo this year, and if any readers that may stumble on this blog share even an iota of my excitement, it'll be a MoFo well-done :)

With that said, today is Sunday! While MoFo hasn't officially begun yet, I see no reason to withhold all of my vegan endeavors. Don't hold your breath for all the details, but look forward to a menu laced with pristine tablecloths, your best china, and waiters in cumber buns. Yup, The Five-Course Vegan is exploiting the world of Fine Dining.
