What do you say to people that believe vegan food can't be delicious?

"I feed them and they shut the hell up," Dave Huffman says.

If you stopped by the cafe at the Cleveland International Film Festival, you may have snagged one of Huffman's delicious vegan baked goods. By day Dave provides Cleveland with the most entertaining lineups of film as the Director of Marketing for the Cleveland Cinemas, but by night, Huffman is the Bitchy Vegan Homo.

"My mother is a notoriously awful cook, so I have been fending for myself in the kitchen for years," says Huffman. This legendary vegan party specialist has just debuted his new online cooking show focusing on plant-based meals and Huffman's signature sass.

"I basically taught myself to cook by watching cooking shows," he says. "The way my house is set up, there is a counter where guests can sit and visit as I cook in the kitchen. So many of them would say 'I feel like I'm watching the Dave Huffman cooking show' that I finally thought I should give it a try."

Huffman released the Bitchy Vegan Homo pilot episode today, a guide on how to make the best baked vegan mac and cheese alongside guest Matt Fish, owner and founder of Melt Bar and Grilled.

Huffman is also appearing at Cleveland's upcoming VegFest to host a live cooking session entitled, Party Food Tips from the Self-Proclaimed World's Best Host. This live episode of Bitchy Vegan Homo will take place at 3:15 p.m., where he'll share tips, his love of vegan cooking and animals.

Cleveland Vegan Society's VegFest returns Saturday, May 5, from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, 300 Lakeside Ave. Admission is free but there is a $5 suggested donation at the door.
