- Recently, Robbie and I started our own business/acting survival job doing merchandising for health food companies.
- If you didn’t know this already, we are huge Field Roast fans. HUGE. We love it. Because how could one NOT love it? In my opinion, Field Roast is the best vegan grain meat out there. It doesn’t try to be something it isn’t; what it is is something extraordinary, gourmet, versatile, and damn tasty.
We even visited the factory when we went to the Pacific Northwest. We were given a great tour of the factory, got to talk to their awesome employees, and even brought home their white truffle mushroom pate, which, if you haven’t tried, is worth a trip to Portobello in Portland. We were lucky enough to go to the Fancy Food Show this year, and meet, in person, the founder of Field Roast, David Lee (awesome guy). We did a lot of talking, and decided to work together to help Field Roast take over NYC! The people behind Field Roast are exactly what you would expect when you eat their products. Loving, down to earth, and incredibly interesting.
This past weekend, Robbie and I were lucky enough to work the DC Veg Fest, organized by the wonderful group,Compassion Over Killing. If you haven’t checked them out yet, do yourself a favor and look over their site. They do lots of important work.
The fest was awesome. We had perfect weather, and got to meet a huge array of people, all of whom fell in love with Field Roast…if they weren’t already huge fans. We also had some awesome Field Roast nerd to nerd conversations with folks as nuts about it as we are. It was simply a wonderful day of vegan celebration. One regret: We were too busy to try any of the amazing desserts from Sticky Fingers…and they were gorgeous.
Apparently, over 5,000 people came out this year. Here are some of our shots, sampling Field Roast sausages! We’re so lucky to be able to represent a company that we really believe in.
