Superstar VegWebber of the Week: Jessimaka33!
This week's FANTASTIC Superstar VegWebber is Jessimaka33 (http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=96969)! She is my kinda lady... anyone who has a vast knowledge of the microbrew industry will always have a place at my table! I feel like I have some questions for her, like... what's the best beer for a tempeh stir-fry? And are there any good vegan beers that pair well with chocolate? Oh man, I've turned Superstar VegWebber on its head this week but it's worth it because hello, it's not every week we have an expert in beer as our fabulous SSVW'er!! Oh and Jessimaka33, have you heard about LA's first vegan beer fest!? http://www.quarrygirl.com/2010/10/11/la-vegan-beer-fest-advance-tix-on-sale-now/ Let's all go!!
VegWebber since? Vegwebber since December 01, 2008, 04:45:29 PM
Vegetarian, Vegan or ? I am a vegan since sept 7th 2010, previous pescatarian since november of 2003.
Where do you call home? I live in central washington state, but the earth is my home.
What do you do when you're not on VegWeb? when i am not on vegweb... i pretend to work? haha. I do a lot of cooking, listening to vinyl, playing guitar and teaching my 3 1/2 y/o girl River music.
Do you have blog or website? I don't have the attention span to keep up with a blog or website.
Do you tweet? the only thing that tweets is my phone when i get a text message
One unique thing should know about you? One unique thing.... I have a very vast knowledge in beer and the microbrew industry
What’s the best thing about being vegan? (if you are!) Even though i am still really new into it, i have really physically felt better, more energy, more alive. My friends have also been so amazing (they think me going vegan is going to be temporary 2Funny ) they are checking all kinds of labels for me, and are being way more supportive than with the pescatarianism, i haven't heard a mean comment yet.
Favorite romantic recipe on VegWeb? Being a happy single mother I really don't try for romance... and have been cooking a whole lot of beans lately... so maybe a musical romance?
Favorite recipe on VegWeb to make for non-vegans to show them how amazing vegan food can be? I really like making the kale chips, they really shock people.. so yummy!
What's your favorite fall recipe? a crock pot chilli is just perfect for the fall and my budget Smiley
One thing you wish you could make vegan but haven’t succeeded at yet? I haven't been vegan long enough to really know my actual limitations, but hopefully there will be nothing!
#1 Cooking secret/tip? the key to cooking is experimentation, and cook with a friend as often as possible. It is fun to teach someone how to cook, and you can get new ideas for combinations from a fresh brain. food is a social thing anyway right?
Best music to cook by? at the moment anything Animal Collective
Three people you'd most like to have dinner with? Timothy leary - Anthony Boudain - Jim Jones (i know it seems like a bad combination... but i have reasons and i wouldn't drink the kool-aid!)
All time favorite restaurant? Nothing vegan around here... so still on the search
French fries or ice cream? Is beer battered zuchinni legal?
Soy milk, rice milk, almond milk? Homemade almond milk
Tofu, tempeh, or seitan? tofu! cold off the cutting board... mmmmmmm there is always a bit that never makes it into the dish.
Congrats! Glad to have you around!!
Jim Jones and Timothy Leary? You are one brave, brave woman! (or seriously insane...) :)>>>
You, me and Anthony Bourdain! You can't leave me out when he's there!
That beer battered zucchini sounds damn fine : )
Yabbit - i plan to have this dinner as my "last meal" hahaha it will be psychedelic/killer! haha
Minke - come on and crash the party! just don't drink the kool aide!
Oh i forgot to add, Webmistress Laura I really really really really want to go to that festival! someone can take me, it would be fun!
