On November 5-6, 2005, thousands are expected to attend the environmental conference known as the “Green Festival,” which is being held at the San Francisco Concourse, located at Eighth and Brannan Street. This year, the crowd will have an opportunity to taste some of the finest and most environmentally-friendly fare of the Bay area. Friends of Animals has invited Millennium Restaurant to join our exhibit booth to offer a sampling of world-class cuisine, as prepared by reknown chef Eric Tucker.

Millennium Restaurant is a bustling, world-famous restaurant located in the Savoy Hotel at 580 Geary Street in Union Square. None of the tantalizing items on Millennium’s menu utilize animals or animal-based products.

Visitors to the Friends of Animals Green Festival exhibit on Saturday, November 5 (between 2:00 and 4:00 pm) will be treated to Millennium’s Toasted French Bread Crostini with three toppings: Herbed White Bean, Truffled French Lentils, & Tomato & Black Olive Salsa Cruda.

Festival-goers will also have the opportunity to purchase Dining With Friends: The Art of North American Vegan Cuisine, a diverse and life-affirming cookbook that is drawing rave reviews from Vegetarian Times, VegNews, Vegetarians in Paradise Web site, daily and weekly papers in Connecticut, the Nashville City Paper, and others in the upcoming months.

Priscilla Feral, co-author of the cookbook and president of Friends of Animals, will be signing books at the exhibit booth throughout the festival.
