The festival, which will take place March 31 at Fiesta Gardens, aims to expose Texans to sustainable, healthy, plant-based diets. VegFest will include cooking demonstrations, free food samples, live music and children’s activities, all for a suggested $5 donation.
Romero will be showing festivalgoers how to cook vegan tamales, a specialty of hers that can be found in her cookbook Viva Vegan!: Authentic Vegan Latina American Recipes.
In addition to blogging at VeganLatina.com, Romero is the author of several cookbooks, including Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. She’s known for hosting lively cooking demonstrations in her hometown of New York City and at festivals around the world, as well as formerly co-hosting the Post Punk Kitchen cooking show.
