Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby, chefs and owners of Philadelphia restaurants V Street and Vedge, specialize in incredible food that also happens to be vegan. Vedge is known as one of the best vegan restaurants in the country, serving inventive, vegetable-based dishes in a classically elegant setting. At V Street
, Landau and Jacoby are whipping up dishes inspired by global street foods. Their latest cookbook, V STREET: 100 Globe-Hopping Plates on the Cutting Edge of Vegetable Cooking, was released this October, with deliciously comforting recipes including snacks (szechuan soft pretzels, jerk-spiced cashews,) plates (pho French dip, trumpet mushroom shawarma,) and — perfect for fall — bowls.
So clear your Sunday afternoon and gather up the ingredients for one of V Street’s signature vegan bowls. Spicy Dan Dan Noodles are the perfect foil for late Saturday nights (plus they make top notch leftovers) while the classic V Street Ramen, made with shiitake broth, is full of rich depth that we swear has healing powers to fight off the common cold. Or the post-summer blues.
