vegan treats from veggie fixation!
you know i’m always on the lookout for new vegan baked goods, so i was STOKED when my friend rachel (who makes amazing jewelry!) sent me the following email/report on a vegan baking/catering service right here in LA called veggie fixation. check it:
I had the pleasure of working alongside Christine Oppenheim at a vegan restaurant for over a year and learned of her ventures in the catering/cooking lessons world. Before I quit my job at this restaurant I shall leave nameless, I saw a vegan fruit tart that Christine made for a frequent customer. That’s when I inquired about making a cake for my mom’s birthday. Christine happily brainstormed some ideas with me and we settled on this delicious chocolate with coffee buttercream frosting double layer cake (all vegan and organic of course!). My mom loved this cake so much, describing it as “not too sweet, decadent and perfect.”
Veggie Fixation, based in Santa Monica, currently offers private catering and cooking classes. Be sure to check out her website and blog for updates and info on future Whole Foods cooking demos!!
