Help the Sacramento Vegetarian Society welcome Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp Founder and Executive Director Nora Kramer to Sacramento. Nora will share the story of YEA Camp, a camp for 12 to 17 year olds who want to make the world a better place, including a short video presentation, then answer your questions about YEA Camp!

Learn more at HTTP://YEACAMP.ORG/.

Last year we sent three high school students to the Camp and hope that once you learn about the camp (e.g., the food for the week is 100% vegan!) you will join us in supporting its future growth and success.

This will be a casual event with a delicious, vegan buffet-style dinner
provided by Garden to Grill.

Can’t make it, but want to support the camp?

The Vegan Aged Cheese Workshop and Cheese Party on July 13, 2014 was a huge success!

Ever wanted to make your own aged vegan cheeses and were too scared to try? Ilsa “The Nacheez Lady” Hess shows you how fun and easy it is to make your own probiotic, rejuvalac, and use it to easily age vegan cheeses.

We will make a selection of delicious aged vegan cheeses including:

• Cashew600_345325542 Cream Cheese
• Chèvre
• Herbed Chèvre
• Lox-Flavored Cream Cheese
• Sharp Cheddar Nutty Cheese Ball
• Brie
• Camembert
• Pepperjack

These cheese recipes come from
Miyoko Schinner’s cookbook “Artisan Vegan Cheese” and “The Non-Dairy Formulary” by Michael Conrad.

A selection of homemade vegan cheeses will be available for tasting including all of the cheeses we will be making. I will also have a vegan butter made without palm oil for people to sample and the recipe to take home.
