My Photo Shoot with ZE Photography

 

Name: Geoff Souder
Vegan since: April 1st, 2011
Gig: Photographer
ZE Photography exists because: I wanted to show the non-vegan world that vegan food consisted of more than grass clippings and wood chips. I figured that if I could show how delicious vegan food is then maybe I could get some people to eat vegan for a meal or two a week.

The Beetbox Cafe, Haleiwa HI :: Vegging Out


The RestaurantThe Beetbox Cafe 66-443 Kamehameha Hwy Haleiwa, Hawaii 96712 Located inside Celestial Natural Foods. Phone (808) 637-3000. Vegetarian + Vegan 

The Dish: Portabella Stache’wich served with tortilla chips and salsa $11.00

The Rave: I guess I never thought about it before but a sliced mushroom does kinda look like a mustache, doesn’t it? This sammie is what all other portabella burgers wish they could be. Grilled portabella mushrooms get slathered with a Vegenaise based garlic aioli, tucked into a toasted wheat bun and topped with the crisp freshness of raw red onions, red bell peppers and sunflower sprouts. Every bite is a savory vacation to Umami Land. The toasted bun holds up well against dripping juices from the meaty ‘shrooms but you may have to opt for eating with a fork and knife near the end. Washed it all down with the Green Juice of the Day, a cooling mixture of apple, kale, dandelion greens and parsley, and left with a smile.

Shangri La Estate Tour

I’ve had a few requests to share more of Hawai’i’s picturesque scenery and places of interest.  I hope these posts will be helpful when you’re planning your visit to the islands. 

Shangri La. Mythical utopia, land of eternal happiness and fountain of youth. So aptly named was the private estate of Doris Duke, now open to the public, showcasing her extensive collection of Islamic art. The five acre, ocean-front compound is located on Oahu, behind a nondescript gate in Diamond Head and is accessible by shuttle bus only (no private cars).

The Vegg Baking Mix :: Review

If you’ve watched my YouTube videos, you know I love The Vegg enough to devote an entire playlist to recipes utilizing this miracle vegan egg yolk.  So guess who got all geeked out when they announced the latest product, The Vegg Baking Mix? Yup, this gal. The original Vegg was designed to replicate the flavor, viscosity and sulfurous aroma of an egg yolk  but not for the science of baking.

Fermented Tea Leaf Salad Recipe

The most magical salad I ever ate was the Fermented Tea Leaf Salad at Burma Superstar in San Francisco. Tart and tangy green tea leaves are doused with fresh lemon juice, then tossed with savory bits of roasted peanuts, various seeds and legumes, chopped tomatoes, chills and fried garlic. If I had to eat a salad everyday for the rest of my life, it would be this unique combination of crunchy-sour-savory yum.

How to Make Cooking Videos – The Basics

I’m often asked what equipment I use and how I make my videos. My father was a professional photographer during one of his lifetimes and taught me the basics. The rest of what I know was gleaned on the interwebz. The only issue is sorting through all of the information out there to find the mentors that will help craft your videos into quality content people want to watch.
