07.19.19– Pop-up dinner and sneak-peek at a new event center

July 19, 2019, Living Light International, will host and prepare a plant-based pop-up dinner in their event center and newly installed hot-kitchen. Living Light is on the second floor of Main Street’s Company Store in Fort Bragg CA. The menu is still under wraps but will be plant-based, and made with local produce.

Known for their raw-vegan culinary training, Living Light is evolving to include cooked-vegan culinary training, basic kitchen skills, baking, fermenting, coastal gardening, and mind-body wellness.

For several months, remodeling and refurbishing space for a hot-kitchen has been underway. The new curriculum has been developed. Classes and workshops are scheduled for raw and cooked vegan cuisine.

The new hot-kitchen is across the building in the former Mendo Bistro space. The completely new kitchen is gorgeous, with stainless steel everywhere. Pop-ups, feasts, meetings, weddings and all celebrations will enjoy a lovely Craftsman-like architecture with city and ocean views.

Living Light also held a ribbon cutting June 6th for The Redwood Coast Inn, the former Grey Whale Inn. Since acquiring the historic property two-years ago, the hotel team has renewed the guest rooms and renovated public spaces. Plans are underway to begin exterior renovation this year.
