* The Jackfruit Experience DemoThe Jackfruit Experience Demo
Time: 6:30 pm
Cleveland Park Library: Amanda wants to show us how to take the world's largest tree fruit and turn it into something we all love, Pulled BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches! We will be using fresh jackfruit, not the kind that comes in a can. Dissecting the jackfruit is a lot of fun and I want you to experience this exotic fruit in all it's glory. After we dissect this beast of a fruit, I will show you how easy it is to make a fabulous BBQ sandwich and provide you with 3 other recipes to utilize the whole fruit. I will not only provide you with a sandwich that will blow your mind but I will also be providing 2 sides for a complete vegan meal. Did you know that juicy fruit gum tastes nearly identical to jackfruit? That's right, the actual fruits within the jackfruit can be eaten raw and will remind you of the beloved juicy fruit gum we used to love as kids. The jackfruit experience is a hit amongst all my friends! I'm glad to have found bookalokal to be able to share this amazing experience with all of you! The event will be taking place at my home in Rockville, MD where we will have plenty of space. Amanda's passion is to show you how to cook food that is out of the ordinary and super healthy. She is heavily into Raw Vegan food for 5 years making healthier versions of her favorite childhood meals. She didn't grow up on a healthy diet and suffered from many illnesses as a child. Lucky for her she was introduced to a whole new world of raw vegan food and loves infusing different flavors from spices and herbs with different raw base ingredients such as nuts, seeds and veggies. She believes food is the fuel to keep us going so we can get the most out of life!
