This is huge. I am so excited.
Brooklyn resident and former line cook, pastry chef, vegan baker, and juice jerk Hanna Lemieux is offering a brand new service to her borough starting this Sunday, April 1: vegan feasts, delivered to your door, for $10 a plate. I repeat: $10 gets a multi-course vegan feast brought to your Brooklyn home. If you can beat that, please tell me how.
If response is positive, this will become a weekly service, and from April 1st on, vegan Brooklynites will be able to order in a delicious, inexpensive meal on Sunday nights, from pretty much anywhere in the borough. The menu will change weekly. This week’s menu will be posted to the Sunday Night Vegan Feast Facebook page on April 1st and will be top secret until then, allowing Lemieux to hit up the farmers’ markets on Saturday for last minute inspiration. Each $10 feast will include 4-5 dishes drawing from Caribbean, Indian, Japanese, Italian, and American cuisines (see the accompanying slideshow for some of her creations and a special preview of one piece of this Sunday’s feast.) She will also be offering one or two baked deserts to go with your meal: this week it’s “the #1 best vegan chocolate chip cookie I have ever invented”, and the first 12 orders will get one free (lucky number 13 and on can procure them for an additional $2 each.)
“I hope to give people a whole new reference point for how satisfying, delicious and diverse a vegan meal can be,” says Lemieux:
My aim with the program is both to provide a service and to meet my own needs for vegan cooking love. In most areas of Brooklyn, as I am sure you know, it is difficult to get a quality vegan meal delivered so I hope to fill that gap a little bit on Sunday nights, for this reason also we will be very flexible with our delivery range and we will attempt to deliver anywhere in Brooklyn that hungry vegans are calling from. I have a background in cooking [and] now as a mom and office manager [ed note: for the excellent Anne Taintor!] I still have a craving to share my cooking with the world but wanted a really scaled down approach that would allow me to continue to focus most on my daughter, my career and getting some sleep occasionally. Sunday Night Vegan Feast is the result.
I, for one, am ecstatic and can’t wait to see what Lemieux cooks up!

This must the biggest vegan news to hit Brooklyn since Veggie Castle closed. Thankfully it’s much happier!
