I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Jay and Linda Kordich at the Vegan Conference I spoke and cooked at in June. I missed Jay’s presentation and I am anxiously waiting for my copy of the dvds from the conference so I can see it- from what I hear it was amazing. I didn’t doubt that it would be. I had gotten to know Jay and Linda on Facebook. They were both so encouraging to me- as I was preparing for my first ever speaking engagement! I will never forget their encouragement and support. Meeting Jay and Linda was the highlight of the weekend for me. They are amazing people who love eachother very much. They are really just as genuine in person as they are online. The book is amazing. I am learning so much and the recipes.. They all look amazing! There isn’t a single recipe that I don’t want to try. They put their hearts into this book and you feel it in their writing. This is a must have book for every vegan- raw or not!
Here I am with Jay.. What a pleasure!
Linda and I. She is the sweetest.
