It’s Pumpkin Season at Living Light! by kristin
We enjoyed a foggy morning here on the beautiful Mendocino coast of northern California. Dan and Cherie have returned from a five-week jaunt which took them to the northeastern United States, then off to Europe – swinging London, the canals of Amsterdam, a whirlwind tour of Berlin, a memorable Ann Wigmore memorial in chilly Lithuania, followed by a VERY long flight to hot and steamy Malaysia and finally back to home sweet home.
As usual, there is a lot going on here at Living Light! We currently have a full class of students for our Associate Chef and Instructor training, and they are eagerly preparing for their first raw vegan culinary demos next week, under the expert tutelage of Cherie, Martine Lussier, Jennifer Cornbleet, and our Living Light staff instructors. We have some interesting local events here too, including the 2nd Annual Soup and Chili Cook-Off to benefit the Fort Bragg Food Bank (we won with our vegan, organic, gluten free Creamy Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder last year – beating out even a Lobster Bisque!
La Dia de los Muertos at Living Light Café and Marketplace

For the fifth year, Living Light will participate in the Mendocino Coast Day of the Dead Celebration. The Day of the Dead, or La Dia de los Muertos, originated in Mexico. It celebrates our ancestors, friends, and family who have passed on. We will create a company altar, with mementos and photographs, which will be up from October 28 – November 1.
We’re delighted to offer “A Fiesta of Chocolate”on November First: Mexican Spiced Chocolate Milk, Ancho Chili Chocolate Truffles, and Coconut Dream Bars $5.00 (includes a $5.00 coupon good toward a purchase at Living Light Marketplace). Chocolate Trio available all day while supplies last.
