Chef Chad Sarno, who co-authored the 'Crazy Sexy Kitchen" cookbook with Kris Carr, comes to Portland March 4 at 5:30 p.m. to offer a talk and cooking demonstration.
Sarno is a culinary educator and the research and development chef for Whole Foods Market in Austin, TX. In his latest endeavor, he teamed up with Carr, a cancer survivor and author of the New York Times bestselling "Crazy Sexy" series, to help create the 150 recipes in this latest book.
Sarno will show how to make some of the plant-based, vegan recipes in the cookbook and talk about healthy eating, during the event at Whole Foods Market.
Each participant will leave with an autographed copy of the book and a Whole Foods goody bag. Space is limited at this cooking demonstration, which is expected to sell out. Tickets to the event cost $25 and can be purchased at the customer service counter at the store's 2 Somerset St. location or by calling 774-7711.
