ENRICH-0659 – Food In-Person: Vegan French Charcuterie (ENRICH-0659_VEG)

Healthy French Charcuterie and Entertaining

In France, they call it apéro—the U.S. version of happy hour where friends and family gather after work with food and drink—usually wine and charcuterie board before dinner. Though on the weekends, it can also be before lunch! There’s no doubt, the French have mastered the art of joie de vivre (joy of living). And apéro isn’t just about the food and drink, though those are certainly important. It’s more about relaxing with friends and taking a moment to reset and appreciate life with snacks like nuts, olives and charcuterie. But here’s an important question: Can you really enjoy apéro without salami, pâté or cheese? With considerations for the environment and eating healthier, some say apéro could disappear. Not if Chef Omar-Pierre Soubra has a say. As co-founder of Good Veg Foods and co-owner of Le Frigo in Boulder, Omar answers the question while also sharing how to prepare delicious vegan and plant-based food charcuteries to keep this tradition alive and turn you into an apéro chef yourself! Omar has created many original dinner recipes based on his French culture and his 17 years in the U.S. “I’m very passionate about food, and I love sharing my experience with people,” he says. Oh, and did we mention the class includes a tasting? Bon appétit!
