Sarah Kagan brings vegan Kosher desserts to Oakland

on September 30, 2014

Vegan burgers and soul food and burritos (oy vey!) … This week, Oakland’s plant-based eaters add another nosh to the list. Sarah Kagan, 26, launched Kosher* vegan catering business, Sarah Sunshine, just in time for the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana.* Rosh Hashana, which fell on September 24, 2014, celebrates the start of the Jewish new year, 5775. It is followed by ten days of atonement, which ends in one of the holiest days under Jewish tradition, Yom Kippur. Fish-free geflite hasn’t reached this vegan Promised Land yet, but Kosher desserts have! Think truffles, rugelach, cakes and pies…

*Kosher food is prepared according to Jewish law and includes the separation of meat and dairy food products. Parve food is a category for foods that are neither meat nor dairy. Vegan food, by default, is parve.
