We are on Facebook!
Each week's menu, along with the original recipe links, is posted up on the Govinda's Catering Facebook page. I was very pleasantly surprised to discover one day that Govinda's Catering is very Google searchable - meaning that if you search for "Govinda's Catering jackfruit," our Facebook post for an entree with jackfruit in it will come up in the first several search results. In a world where there are literally dozens of Govinda's restaurants and caterin
Even if you are one of those "Let me skip this long-winded blog and just read the menu" kind of person (no hurt feelings, just acknowledging that this happens), please do read this section today, as it contains important information about our schedule for the month of August.
A couple of weeks ago, Helene, the organizer for the Triangle VegFest, asked me if I would be interested in being a vendor for the National Animal Rights Conference in Alexandria, VA. Hmm... being a v
Several people this week have asked me if I was going to make sure to put details about my upcoming events in the newsletter. Before any distractions happened and any more time passed, I wanted to give you a "Save the Date" listing of events for July and the beginning of August (more August fun TBA later). Some of them are music-related, while some are events that feature Govinda's, and some are both. All, I hope, will be fun for you. Please mark your calendars and let me kno
Welcome back to me! The concept of vacationing is such a stretch for me that I ended up working most days of last week anyway... Still it was lovely to get away and see some place new. I will tell you about my trip to Wilmington, but first before anything else happens, I want to remember to tell you all that this Saturday, June 24th, Govinda's Catering will be back at the Carrboro Farmers' Market. Yay! (The menu is still under some development, so if you have a special reques
This Saturday my band, Samadhi, had a beautiful kirtan at Triangle Yoga in Chapel Hill. I realized that I had been sadly negligent in promoting the event. In fact, if it hadn't been for Facebook, I, myself might have forgotten to attend... Uh, that's when you know that you might have too many things on your mind. Nearly forgetting your own performance is right up there with forgetting your child somewhere (which has happened, but fortunately only twice in 11 years). That bein
What do the Honeysuckle Tea House and Johnny's (Gone Fishing) have in common? Quite a bit, really. I just noticed by looking at these photos that they are both blue, for one thing. They are also both coffee/tea houses with a country store kind of feel. (photo honeysuckleteahouse) They both offer live music and are serious community hangouts - as in good-luck-finding-parking-during-prime-time kind of serious. On Saturday I also approached both of these establishments with samp
I don't know if April 15th has any significance to you all other than it happened to be Easter Sunday this year. After spending several years in the tax and bookkeeping business, April 15th is a kind of bold type day for me in that it is generally Tax Day. This year the tax deadline is tomorrow, April 18th, yet that doesn't really mean that my world has been any less crazy than it would have been if the deadline were still the 15th. Suffice it to say that between a few tax cl
This is a "Save the Date" kind of email. There are many events coming up in the next few months that I would love to invite you all to. Some of them are music-related, while some are events that feature Govinda's, and some are both. All, I hope, will be fun for you. Please mark your calendars and let me know if you plan to come so that I can make sure to be on the look-out. I had originally intended to make this a compilation issue of resources for combating political insanit

Please mark your calendars and let me know if you plan to come so that I can make sure to be on the look-out. I am pulling two events out of chronological order because, well, I would love for you to read about them
Good morning! I really enjoy looking back at past newsletters and remembering where I was in my life and the world at that point in time. Several of these recipes are repeats from the first week in September. When I went back to look at that newsletter, I had to smile at the trepidation I was feeling regarding the onset of autumn. Fortunately for my freezeaphobia, it has been one of the area's warmest falls on record in a while, and I have frequently had the pleasure of admir
