SimplyRaw Potlucks

Please note that potlucks are on hold temporarily.

We are very happy to be partnering with our lovely friends over at Prana Shanti Yoga Studio, in the Spirit Room, located directly behind SimplyRaw Express, to restart these wonderful community events.

Please note that the potlucks for October and November will take place on the last SUNDAY of the month.

Next Potluck: SUNDAY November 24, 2013 from 6-8pm.

Admission is FREE!

Please note that the potlucks are open to all — you don’t have to be raw vegan to attend and enjoy. We ask that everyone brings a home-prepared dish enough to feed 8-10 people. It can be as simple as a green salad, guacamole, or a lovely cut-up bowl of juicy fruit. We look forward to seeing you there!

Location: Prana Shanti Yoga Studio, 52 Armstrong Street  Ottawa (directly behind SimplyRaw Express)

Recipes & Ingredients

Every adult should bring a dish *home prepared* at home to serve 8-10 people. Please bring your recipe (so we can share them on the website) with the complete list of ingredients for those with allergies. We’ll be awarding prizes for best dessert & best main dish of the evening, as voted by everyone in attendance.
