cooking for the theatre company - Saint Genet just finished a 4 day run at On the Boards, a contemporary performance venue in Seattle. OtB graciously let us use their kitchen to make company meals. We have a lot of dietary conditions - no nuts, no beans, vegan, no cilantro, no carrots or radishes, and I found out late in the game 2 of our volunteers were gluten free… so this is my solution to feeding 25 people at under $2 per person.
2 green salads with mustard, dill & shallot vinaigrette - one with no carrots. Baked couscous with haricot vertes & a veggie tomato sauce with oregano. Baked polenta with a basil tomato sauce. Brown rice & lentils with roasted broccoli & cauliflower.

Saint Genet family meal… so I work with a theatre company as a designer, performer, and chef. The shows are beautiful but extremely difficult physically and psychologically. We have spent a few years developing a practice of sharing meals (which are always vegan) - it’s good for us spiritually, and necessary to accomplish the work. So, this is what we eat…
Creamy chive coleslaw with tahini, flax, red & green cabbage, green onion, radishes. Green salad with ‘baby greens’ (not sure what the translation is - shopping in German, especially for vegan ingredients, is super frustrating for a non speaker) frisse and some un-named spicy green with a light balsamic vinaigrette. Dill couscous with sauteed leeks & garlic. With sides of nutritional yeast, picked beets, carrots and turnips.

Saint Genet family meal - we’re on tour, this time in Austria debuting a new show - Paradisiacal Rites - at the donaufestival. it’s hard to balance the demands of making the show happen and making the food happen (shopping & cooking for 20 people, then performing in a 4 hour show) but the delicious white wine in Krems makes up for it.
Euro style family meal: green salad with mustard vinaigrette. Cabbage, fennel carrots & peppers with chives & green onions, apple cider vinegar, olive oil & nutritional yeast. Brown rice asparagus risotto with Herbs de Provence & white wine reduction

euro ramen - this time the theatre company sprung for a room with a kitchen, which is great because Austrians don’t have a word for vegan. i think all they eat is pizza & schnitzle..
