We recently partnered with plant-based food consultant and chef Rebecca Carucci of Powered By Plants Consulting for one of our events. She helped us create delicious vegan bites to pair with the wine that we served at our Wine & Spoon Event at Mercantile in Gardiner, New York. The evening went so great that we intend to keep collaborating with her on future projects as well!
What is plant-based food consulting, you might ask? Well, Rebecca is a master of what she does. She is certified in Plant-Based Nutrition and researches all the latest trends in plant-based foods. Her experience includes working in restaurants, feeding nutritious meals to families in her community, and (like us!) attending vegan expos, events, and conferences all over.
