For those looking to host family members who do not eat meat or are lactose-intolerant, Mike Behrend, executive chef and founder of Veggie SA, will present an evening of food and cooking instruction in New Braunfels.

“I love New Braunfels," Behrend said in a press release. "The people are so warm, and we’ve had a great reception at both [previous] classes. I grew up in Cuero playing football on Friday nights and being a part of a community. I get that same feel here in New Braunfels.”

The meatless holiday cooking show will take place Nov. 15 from 7-9 p.m. at Village Venue in Freiheit Village, 2032 Central Plaza, New Braunfels.

The menu will feature the following vegan dishes: tofu turkey, glazed ham, green bean casserole, herb mashed potatoes, candied yams and cranberry relish. Guests will receive all recipes and take part in a meal featuring each dish. They will also receive three gift cards to the Veggie SA restaurants—Green Vegetarian Cuisine, Earth Burger and Bok Choy.

Tickets cost $40 and are available at
