Jill’s Restaurant to Host Seven-Course Vegan Fundraiser Dinner

We don’t normally just regurgitate press releases. But the press announcement we received the other day was pretty unique.

It is not every day we Boulderites have the chance to try a seven-course vegan meal. What’s more, the reasonable $54.95 cost sends all profits to the Greenwood Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, a “nonprofit organization that is devoted to the rehabilitation and release of orphaned, injured and sick wildlife”. This Lyons group is the largest of its kind in Colorado and clearly does good things.

But even if you are not into saving cute, cuddly little wildlife creatures, you won’t be able to resist this menu created by Executive Chef (and Frenchman) Laurent Mechin:

Petite Vegetable Amuse Bouche

Stuffed snow pea, bake baby beets, asparagus bundle, tapenade

Green Lentil Soup

curry rubbed tofu

Pita Panzanella Salad

tear drop tomatoes, castelvetrano olives,  piquillo peppers, red wine vinaigrette, basil 

Tempeh and Winter Vegetables Beggars Purse

peas and carrot coulis

Nishiki Rice Cake

napa cabbage, kimchi broth

Moroccan Couscous

chickpeas, semolina, harissa, cilantro

Dessert

Hand Rolled Chocolate Truffles

The date is Tuesday, February 4th. For reservations, call (720) 406-7399. See you there.
