George Vutetakis is coming home this weekend. Though he now resides in San Diego, the culinary progressive and former owner of The Inn Season Cafe in Royal Oak is revisiting his “roots” with his latest work Vegetarian Traditions.
Veggies have made quite a comeback over the last decade, and no doubt Vutetakis has played a pivotal role in their fame. Before “Whole Foods” and other chains began to tout and commercialize the value of organics and natural, healthy fare, Royal Oak’s very own was already far ahead of the trend.
As stated of Mr. Vutetakis on his site, “His reputation as a leader in the creation of delicious, healthy and innovative vegetarian cuisine using fresh, unadulterated ingredients flourished as chef and owner of the award winning Inn Season Cafe in Royal Oak, Michigan.” You can read all about the famed chef, author, and teacher here, or check out his popular blog at www.thevegetarianguy.com.
George Vutetakis will appear at The Book Beat on Sunday, June 13th at 2:00 pm to promote his cookbook Vegetarian Traditions: Favorite Recipes From My Years at the Legendary Inn Season Cafe. As always, check all dates and times before stepping out the door.
