It’s been awhile, eh? But just because we haven’t been blogging doesn’t mean we haven’t been working! In fact, we’ve been testing new recipes, securing our spot at events and taking baby steps in the direction of becoming legitimate business-ladies (sounds appealing, doesn’t it?). Oh, and doing what we like to call “market research”. That is, buying all the vegan baked goods we can find at the likes of Whole Foods and Rainbow Grocery and then talking about how they’re too dry/bland/ugly/etc., and then scheming to one-up them.
But enough of the boring shit, let’s get to our next event already!
We’ll be at the San Francisco Zine Fest near the end of the month, breaking up this paper-dominated event with a little dose of sugar. If the idea of Fat Bottom Baked goods in lovely Golden Gate Park (did we mention it’s in Golden Gate Park?) isn’t enough to get you out to the zine fest,
you are a fool check out this list of all the rad exhibitors and get stoked.
Oh yeah, and another thing! Did you know I (Ashley) make this vegan cookzine, Barefoot & in the Kitchen? I’ll try not to be offended if you’ve never heard of it (but ‘friend’ me on myspace anyway, yeah?). Anyway, copies of all four issues will be there sharing some table space with Fat Bottom, so you can take them home and do some cooking of your own once you’re all inspired from the delicious baked goods.
The whole thing is two days long, Saturday and Sunday, but we may not be there Sunday because, well, we’re competing in this macaroni and cheese competition.
You may be thinking to yourself, “Hey, wait, I thought they were vegan! What a couple of hypocritical, money-mongering, (sub)cultural appropriators! Who do they think they are, claiming to be a vegan business??”
And if you’re thinking that, well, let me explain. We will, indeed, be serving up vegan mac and cheese, no doubt to a crowd made up exclusively of omnivores (what kind of vegan goes to a mac and cheese event?!). And, in our far-fetched yet beautiful, cruelty-free dreams, we’re going to kick the other competitors’ asses and have proven the culinary value of nutritional yeast once and for all.
At any rate, we’ll see you at the SF Zine Fest on Saturday, the 22nd! And we probably won’t see you at the mac and cheese event (right?), but you can bet there will be self-satisfied gloating or bitter venting in the days to follow.
