Chef Tanya Petrovna, founder of completely plant-based Native Foods Café in Palm Springs, will be in Idyllwild next Monday night for a demonstration at Sky Island Natural Foods’ weekly “Meatless Monday.”
Petrovna’s back-to-basics approach to cooking began with her love for animals and European gourmet upbringing. She has produced a culinary adventure that raised the vegetarianism image of the 1960s and 1970s to a new, unprecedented level of vegan enjoyment and acceptance nationwide.
Petrovna lives in Palm Springs, where she teaches Iyengar yoga, writes, saves cats, dogs and elephants, and is working on the next big thing.
The event is from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 5, with a suggested donation of $10.
