Our Persian Spread was a New York City-based, dinner event at The V-Spot prepared by the exquisite chef, Nasim Alikhani. At this event, Alikhani honorably took on the challenge of veganizing traditional Persian dishes. Producer James Koroni teamed up with Bina Ahmad and Bitta Mostofi to create this event.
Koroni is of Iranian descent. His father’s death to cancer encouraged him to pursue a plant-based lifestyle. In an effort to feel more connected to his father, this concept was created to honor his father’s life and culture, while being true to Koroni’s health-conscious lifestyle.
Most innovations in culinary art are happening with plant-based foods. More and more plant-based chefs and businesses are popping up in the mainstream. For example, a vegan doughnut shop in Brooklyn, Dun-Well Doughnuts won Canadian Food Network’s Donut Showdown, in addition, Chef Chloe Coscarelli won the American Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. President Bill Clinton, Academy Award winning starlet Jessica Chastain and music mogul Russell Simmons are among many celebrities who have all adopted a plant-based lifestyles.
Our Persian Spread brought communities together to enjoy this one of a kind experience.
