Vegan Umami: The secret ingredient to meaty, plant-sourced cooking.
Join JL for a lively discussion and brief demo to learn how “umami” can make your vegan cooking satisfying for you, as well as the vegetarians, omnivores and veg-curious in your life. Bonus: JL will be using the new Ninja Foodi – the pressure cooker that air fries! – and will give it away to one lucky winner in the audience at the conclusion of the demo!
