Chef leaves the meat world to host vegan pop-ups
For most vegans, the thought of having to handle and cook meat is one met with the heebie jeebies. Thankfully for chef Jeremy Miller, the conflict between being vegan and cooking non-vegan is no more!
Miller was an executive chef at the recently closed American Food & Beverage restaurant in Buckhead Atlanta. He told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he’s going to bring vegan fare to diners through a new pop-up restaurant called Herbivore. Held at the Cafe Sunflower in Buckhead, foodies can sample Miller’s vegan creations every other Sunday beginning February 21st.
Now, Miller can “devote my life to following a plant-based diet and living a vegan lifestyle,” he said. 12 to 15 small plates and three to four desserts will be on the menu. He plans to make use of global flavours, particularly his favourite Southeast Asian flavours. Just don’t expect any faux meats (sorry seitan worshippers). Understandably, Miller probably isn’t interested in replicating the thing he’s leaving behind. He instead respects and experiments with vegetables, highlighting them in raw and cooked dishes.
We can’t help but feel like proud parents. We have nothing to do with his success directly, but we’re going to brag about it anyway.
