As of April 26th, the brand devoted to lofty food and cooking, Epicurious, will no longer publish beef recipes. Epicurious’s decision, they claim, is pro-plant and not anti-cruelty.

Another brand that is moving in the direction of plant based foods is Nathan’s Hot Dogs. The company has announced that it is adding a non beef hot dog to its menu.

The Nile Cafe, Philadelphia’s longest running vegetarian/vegan restaurant is now serving its third generation of customers. Stop in and meet Michelle Joseph, manager and owner of The Nile Cafe.
