...arises Burt Family Food Services

Most of you probably already know that The Red Avocado is now out of business. This is the last newsletter to inform you of continuing services from Chef Dave. Please follow the links to find out more about any particular subject. We hope you will support us by following our new blog and "liking" our new Facebook page.

We have started a new business called Burt Family Food Services. Chef Dave is preparing weekly meals for pick up once a week - standard is 4 meals for 2. This service continues the successful Meal Plans that were available the last few years at The Red Avocado. All meals are vegan and 99% organic.

Cooking classes are ongoing through Kirkwood Community College and New Pioneer Food Co-op. These focus on vegan and seasonal cooking including a 4 part vegan whole foods series, vegan 3-course meals and intensive classes focusing on one particular ingredient. We will also be presenting free cooking demos throughout the year at various locations. Look for us at the market this summer, at the Field to Family Festival in September and at Willowwind School in the Fall.

Our original recipe veggieburgers are available locally and larger shipments can be arranged nationwide. Email burtfamilyfoodservices@gmail.com to arrange an order. If you are outside of Iowa City, our teas, frozen veggieburgers and other dried goods can be shipped. Within a month or so we should have online ordering available via PayPal.

Around town, veggieburgers are available at The Wedge Downtown, New Pioneer Food Co-op delis and The Trumpet Blossom Cafe. In the future we hope to have the veggieburgers available from the frozen section of the Co-op again as well as the tea blends that were so popular.

We hope to be shipping veggieburgers via Buykind, a website that specializes in delivering vegan foods from restaurants around the country.

Private Nutritional and cooking consultations are also available. Email burtfamilyfoodservices@gmail.com to arrange an appointment specific to your needs.
