Visit Las Vegas for vegan dining

On May 7, Wynn Las Vegas will debut Viva Las Vegan: a vegan cooking and tasting event as part of Vegas Uncork'd by Bon Appetit magazine. This vegan vacation opportunity is co-hosted by Tal Ronnen, a vegan culinary pioneer and New York Times best-selling author of The Conscious Cook: Delicious Meatless Recipes That Will Change the Way You Eat (William Morrow, 2009), with the award-winning chefs of Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. Wynn Las Vegas recently announced an exclusive collaboration with Ronnen, who is working closely with the resort's chefs to develop all-new vegan menus for the restaurants. With Viva Las Vegan, Wynn introduces a one-of-a-kind event to Las Vegas, offering visitors the chance to sample vegan dishes from award-winning chefs -- and give vegans a new vacation destination where they know their vegan eating desires won't be dashed.  Vegans (and non-vegans) can sink their teeth into meat- and dairy-free cuisine that doesn't feel like a sacrifice, but indulgent, as a vacation to Las Vegas should be. 

Learn vegan cooking tips from well-known executive chefs

Beginning at 12pm in Encore's Beethoven suite, you can sample a selection of inventive, flavorful vegan creations from chefs Alex Stratta of Stratta, Jet Tila of Wazuzu, Kim Canteenwalla of Society Cafe, Mark LoRusso of Botero as well as David Walzog of Lakeside Grill and SW Steakhouse. These renowned chefs will demonstrate their step-by-step preparations will be projected onto a large screen so you can follow along using the ingredients provided at your own station! You'll learn how to make Vegas chef-caliber vegan specialties such as LoRusso's "Pasta and Clams" with eggless garganelle pasta, kombu broth, broccoli rabe, sweet peppers and oyster mushrooms; Canteenwalla's tomato tasting of roast tomato bisque & heirloom tomato with cashew cheese salad; Stratta's sweet roasted corn and cashew cream agnolotti with wild mushrooms; Walzog's vegan "clam" chowder with cashew cream base and smoked oyster mushrooms, and Tila's jade dumplings with spinach & shiitake mushrooms. The fun, convivial experience is rounded out with organic cocktails from Patricia Richards, award-winning mixologist of Wynn and Encore, and vegan desserts from celebrated pastry chefs Kimberly Valdez and Jenifer Fournier of Wynn.
