One of the things we love most about what we do here at The Feedfeed is celebrate the achievements of our #feedfeed community.  For us, celebrating over food and drink is without a doubt, our preferred avenue for merriment.  To this end, we were really excited to host our good friend Maria Koutsouganis, beloved food blogger better known as @foodbymaria.  We teamed up with our friends at Prairie Organic Spirits to create a special evening for Maria and our guests. 

Over the years, Maria has gained a cult following around her delicious, yet approachable vegan cuisine.  She uses her social platform as a space to educate and empower those who struggle with eating disorders and body dysmorphia, both of which Maria has overcome. 

Mindful Vegan Meals is a cookbook that has us excited to be in the kitchen, creating meals that are as easy as they are comforting.  Focusing on flavor first and foremost, Maria leans heavily on her Greek heritage and up brining.

To celebrate with Maria, we invited a small group of our #feedfeed community to break bread with us at FeedfeedBrooklyn where we dined on Dolmades (Stuffed Grape Leaves), Yesmista, Spanakopita, Fesolakia, “Thanksgiving” Meatballs with mushroom gravy, Greek Lemon Potatoes, and of course, dessert, Carrot Cake.  The evening was paired with a perfectly crafted, Vegan Concord Grape Gin Fizz made with Prairie Organic Gin.  

Watch Maria and Kevin prepare the Dolmades (Stuffed Grape Leaves) for her dinner here!

What made this night so special, is that as an omnivore, the recipes and the story behind the creation of this cookbook, reopened my eyes to the wonderful world of vegan cuisine.  Showcasing that when done right, vegan does not have to feel ‘vegan,’ and by focusing on simple yet delicious ingredients, cooking like Maria becomes approachable and fun.
