Healthy Summer Dining Experience: Grassroots Pantry

Today is the last day that we'll be highlighting our Healthy Summer Dining Experience partners, the TFT dishes they are featuring for the month of August, and the prizes YOU can win by entering our HSDE (contest)! Don't forget to EAT (a delicious TFT HDSE meal/drink), TAKE (a picture of the item and upload it to our Facebook page), and SHARE (the photo with friends and ask them to "like" it), so you can WIN (one of nine incredible prizes, one for the most "liked" photo taken at each HDSE partner restaurant)!

Grassroots Pantry, snugly nestled on Fuk Sau Lane (between Western Street and Pok Fu Lam Road on Third Street) in Sai Ying Pun, is an all-day cafe that serves delicious plant-based edibles and hosts edifying cooking classes and workshops. This cozy nook, the creation of chef Peggy Chan, uses local, organic produce, and is a staunch advocate of sustainable, conscientious eating.

The Grassroots Pantry team is offering the quinoa salad as its HDSE dish ($90). The quinoa and greens in this dish are dressed with orange hazelnut dressing and garnished with dried fruits and nuts. If you take the most "liked" picture of this salad, you could win a voucher for a GP class or workshop! Classes this fall include an Asian cooking class with Chef Peggy's mother, Kitty, a homestyle Indian cooking class with Spice Box Organics owner and holistic health counselor Punam Chopra, and a raw foods class with Rawthentic chef, Priscilla Soligo! Thanks to everyone at Grassroots Pantry!
