Cooking made easy.

Founder Coleen Patrick-Goudreau says she wants to give people the tools and resources required to prevent disease and optimize health. The video, hosted by Patrick-Goudreau and Alka Chandna, is full of tidbits of practical information that will enhance anyone's cooking career. The video's focus is not only on learning vegetarian recipes and cooking methods, but also providing basic nutritional information. Additional features include frequently asked questions about vegetarian dining and "Thinking Outside the Crate: Farm Sanctuary's First 15 Years," a piece narrated by Six Feet Under actor James Cromwell The DVD ($20) also provides an introduction to meat analogs, dairy substitutes and other vegan products available in grocery stores.
