For all of October, vegan-minded bloggers are being asked to toil around the clock (only a slight exaggeration) to celebrate a month dedication to vegan fare. Vegan Month of Food was started by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, vegan chef and cookbook author beloved for Veganomicon as well as Vegan Brunch. Moskowitz says her goal is to urge bloggers to write as much as they can this month about vegan fare:
The blog entries can be about anything food related -- your love of tongs, your top secret tofu pressing techniques, the first time your mom cooked vegan for you, vegan options in Timbuktu -- you get the idea. There is no strict guideline for how much you have to write, but we shoot for about 20 times a month, or every weekday.
Confession time: You know we love bacon in the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, and we just ran a front-page Food section story on making your own sausage. But we also enjoy eating (and writing about eating) lower on the food chain, so we're looking forward to seeing what Vegan Month of Food brings.
If you're a vegan, you are probably already a fan of Moskowitz's blog, and website The Post Punk Kitchen (you can click here to read a Q&A that The Times did with Moskowitz this year).
But what else are you reading? What are your favorite vegan-minded websites, and why? Also: Cake Maker to the Stars is rounding up the names of participating bloggers here.
