Support our IndieGoGo campaign! And help us raise funds to cover growing Festival expenses.
Today marks the 20th Anniversary of the Sandlot, one of the greatest kids movies of all time. To celebrate, we’re recreating the perfect s’more (as taught by Ham Porter), with one little substitute: vegan marshmallows! We love Dandies original vanilla vegan mallows — packed with soy protein. Pair with your preferred graham and chocolate, and you’re ready to go!
Ham Porter: Hey, you want a s’more?
Smalls: Some more of what?
Ham Porter: No, do you want a s’more?
Smalls: I haven’t had anything yet… so how can I have some more of nothing?
Ham Porter: You’re killing me, Smalls!
“Alright now pay attention.”
- “ First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham.”
- “Then you roast the ‘mallow. When the ‘mallows flaming… you stick it on the chocolate.”
- “Then cover with the other end.”
- “Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good!”
Do you have a special dessert recipe that has your friends saying, “I can’t believe it’s soy!”? Then we want to taste it! We’re looking for the best soy and tofu dessert recipes to be featured at the VIP Reception and the Soy and Tofu Festival. The Grand Prize winner will receive $300 cash, a festival goody bag, a $20 gift card to Berkeley Bowl, a feature Nichi Bei Weekly and the Soy and Tofu Festival program, and be given the coveted title of “2013 Soy and Tofu Dessert Master”!
