Food at Vegan fitness Week

Postby Carin » Sun Nov 29, 2009 9:42 am

In VFW 2008 in Finland we had something very nice. A kitchen crew. All the days they made food voor all the participants: breakfast, lunch and dinner and a snack in the evening. Good veganfood where they took there time to prepare it.
I found it very pleasant, the sporters could take their time to do their sport and have time to make a full day out off it .

In 2008 I started a training(course) voor nature cook because the focus is on veganfood and also a training nature health consultant. Now I am in the middle off it. And I did some training periods in kitchens where we cook fore around 150 people a day.
I learned how to count how much food you have to prepare for groups and also I did some experiments for cooking for people with allergies and off course cooking. Where I worked it was almost everything vegan.
Because I enjoyed it so much that we had in Finland a kitschen crew and now I do learn about cooking for big groups and love cooking I suggested to do the cooking for this week. Maybee Vegamouse will come over to help me. He is a home cook who has a very good feeling for food. You can call it nature art. He taste something and make it better than they prepaire it before.
So if every body like the idea to have a kitschen crew than I would pleasted to go for it.
And if there will come more than 20 people than it would be great to have everydinner somebody to help me with cutting the vegetables and helping wih cooking and cleaning. But that can be every day a different person.

I do have some ideas like for the breakfast: bread and porridge, for lunch soup & sallad with bread, and the evening good dinner. For the lunch and dinner it would be a idea to go for a theme like, one day Thai, one day Italian etc.
With off course some special dishes for people with food allergies.

Extra challange for me is to make varied food cheap as possible and spoil you.

What do you think about the whole idea? And would you give me the trust to go for it?

carin if you are willing to do it, i bet you would make a lot of people happy :D

But we could rotate helping tasks, doing dishes etc, and also to cover you so you can go for some events as well?

I know that you are an excellent chef so I would trust you with the food anyday. :D

But I am wondering if you want to cook all week, do you dont want to participate in any of the sport activities?
there is always time for rowing

The food at VFW 2008 in Finland was absolutely amazing! I remember there being a lot of people in the kitchen crew and them being super cool and working really hard to keep us fed.

Carin, how many people do you think you will need in your crew? Maybe we can draw up a rota? I like to think I am handy with a kitchen knife, would be keen to help.

JP I love to do it. And maybe it’s a nice idea that one day somebody will do lunch so I can enjoy one of the activities but we will work it later out.

Thanks Ida :)
Oh yeh it would be a great experience to go for it. And maybe one day I will enjoy the morning activities.

It depends how people will come. But if people are needed than I think about you, and ask every day somebody else to help who likes.
If Vegamouse is coming over than I think we can manage a group of 30 together. But first lets see how many people will come and if they like they idea.

I'd offer my services in the kitchen, but I'm hopeless. Point me at the sink and water, and I do my best work :P

I think it would be excellent if you would be in charge of the cooking Carin :D . I'm also sure you can get as much help as you want from the other participants, it would be a shame if you didnt have time to participate in the activities :) .

The dishwashing competition sounds fun. :lol:

This year it would be a big challenge to do the cooking. Because I love to cook, make it everybody feel comfortable but maybe I can also use it as learning goal for school. Whole week vegan cooking for vegans feels like a dream come true. Therefore I am prepared to sacrafice this years sportactivities in order to do the cooking.

But its good to see al the positief reactions and helping hand if help is needed.

Thanks for giving me the support to do the cooking at veganfitness :D . So we have to do dish washing and food eating competition. If they have a huge oven (but I don't think so) we can do pizza eating festival like they do in the US. Hm maybe better not, would be hard to do all those sports during the week.

If help is needed for the cutting work of anything else I will free to ask. I thought that the cutting work can be done before sporting. so nobody has to miss the sport activity.

I look very much foreward. And there will be a falafel evening......

If there are any food allergies , please let me know before the week so we can arrange a good meal for you too and think about special desserts etc.
