Good Food Festival 2017

For the fourth year in a row, Elsa and I presented at the Good Food Commons as part of the Good Food Festival. And this year we did two 20 minute presentations. Presentation 1: “Easy Cheeses” was from 12-12:20pm. And Presentation 2: “Vegan Cheese Techniques” was from 1:30-1:50pm. Check out our Resources Page to find links to recipes and instructions to the tasty foods we demonstrated. The Good Food Festival was held at UIC Forum (725 W Roosevelt Rd, Chicago, IL).

We had a lot of fun presenting in the Good Food Commons as part of the Good Food Festival. Our presentation flew by! We had 20 minutes but with all the preparation that went into it, the presentation felt like 20 seconds. Our presentation was called “Making Cheese, Tofu, and Tofu Cheese”.
