The 2009 International Vegetarian Food Festival will be held on May 17, 2009 in Washington, DC. This annual food festival features an authentic sampling vegetarian and vegan food from around the world. Ten dollars gets you in the door unless you are 10 or younger and you get in for free.

The DC Examiner gives us this fantastic and informative paragraph of what this event is about:

The International Vegetarian Food Fair offers five different rooms representing eight different geographic regions – North America, South America, Central America, Caribbean, Asia, South Pacific, and Africa.  Try the samosas (fried pastries filled with potatoes, garlic, carrots, onions, cilantro, jalapenos, and peas) from Kisumu, Keyna, which use thin pastry wrappers that differ from the thick and doughy samosas from India.  Look for the spinach and corn Sadza (cornmeal) bread from Zimbabwe.  This steamed bread of freshly-ground corn, cornmeal, and spinach is prepared during the summer when corn is fresh and plentiful.  Other dishes, like the Italian vegetarian meatball and the Peruvian garlic veggie meat enchiladas, are traditional dishes with a vegetarian spin.  “Those who aren’t vegetarian often don’t realize just how many vegetarian foods there are to eat, how easy they are to make, and how good they taste!” says Bokow.

I will unfortunately be out of town and will not be able to make the festival. If you’re in the DC area, I hope you head out to this event…and let me know how it goes.
