Calling all TVA Bakers...and those who enjoy eating.

As you may have heard, Vegan baked goods are taking over the world from June 20th-28th.

The Toronto Vegetarian Association is participating in this worldwide extraveganza with a bake sale on June 20th. Check out the site to see where else in the world vegans will be hosting sweet celebrations (from Nigeria to New Zealand) or listen to the interview that John and Liam did with the event's creator.

On June 20th, we are asking TVA members to join us by baking up some delicious treats or by bringing their pocket change to exchange for decadent vegan delights.
The bake sale will take place in front of Vegetarian Haven (17 Baldwin st) from 12-2pm.

If you are interested in baking, please send us an email with what you'd like to prepare. We will post the list of contributions on the sidebar of this blog. We would appreciate hearing from you by June 13th.

Muffins from Vegan Brunch

If you are using a recipe from a cookbook that is available at the TVA resource centre let us know. That way, people who are interested in recreating your delicious delights at home could head up to the resource centre and grab their own resources to support their journey toward vegan baking supremacy.

If you just want to come and eat, plan to come early, and bring friends. Vegan treats seem to attract crowds.


  1. Hey Guys! Would you like to show the Guelph vegans & vegetarians some love? We are having OUR bake sale (as part of the worldwide vegan bake sale) on June 27th in downtown Guelph. All proceeds are going to Ruby Ranch Pig Sanctuary. You could take the trip & join us, or just mention the event on your rockin' podcast. Thanks & hugs from Guelph, Kelly

  2. Hey Kelly,
    I'm so glad you mentioned this. I am going to send John a note to make reference to it on tomorrow's podcast. My vegan mom and vegan brother were already notified about your event-they will be there! I hope you get a huge crowd.

  3. Diana thinks we should marry Paul Rudd because he is so funny but I am vetoing that for whomever is making Caramel Pecan Bars.

  4. I suggest coming to the bakesale with an engagement ring just in case - you may want to seal the deal before others taste the caramel pecan bars. I will not reveal the name-it is sexier to be mysterious (but it isn't me).
    And if Paul Rudd is now available (since you and Diana have stopped courting him) I may have to see if he has a weakness for any particular pastry that I could work on perfecting.
