About the Event

Gadadhara Pandit Dasa (Pandit), Columbia University’s first ever Hindu Chaplain, has been teaching vegetarian cooking to Columbia’s community since 2001.  At this cooking class not only will you see a live demonstration and learn how to cook a tasty vegetarian meal, but there will be a free tasting for all who attend!

Excerpt from the article: 
No matter how much I try and explain the benefits of a vegetarian diet, there are always people who, while nodding their heads in agreement with everything I say -- will conclude our dialogue by saying, "but...I love my meat."



This event is made possible by the generous support of The Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Community Affairs, the Center for Food and Environment, Program in Nutrition, and the Office of Student Activities and Programs.
