Spice Up: Dinner & Speaker Event With Tofu Louie

October 17, 2019 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come listen to Tofu Louie share his story as a chef in Columbus and how his Chinese roots influenced his culinary journey. The focus of the night is to learn more about different cultural experiences through listening and storytelling.

Refreshments, appetizers, and dinner will be served throughout the night.

Menu to come! The menu will be entirely vegan. Tofu Louie will be serving dishes that were inspired by his Grandmother’s cooking.

About The Chef:
Tofu Louie, aka Eric Ma, has been a part of the Columbus vegan scene for a while now. You might have seen him at a festival around town over the summer. The food he creates starts with research and experimentation. He has made Western and Asian dishes that are traditionally made with meat into vegan dishes, by experimentation and refinement of his process. He aims to introduce Columbus to the diverse culinary scene of Eastern Asian countries. Much of his cooking has been influenced by his Grandmother, who was from Zhongshan, China. He hopes to share a bit of cultural roots throughout the evening.
