About Everyday Dish and Rosemary, Salt + Thyme: The Everyday Dish website was started by Julie and Jay Hasson, back around 2007. They realized there weren’t any plant-based cooking shows (at least not on TV), or places that you could go to find fun, easy-to-prepare vegan recipes. So they set out to create one online, invited lots of guest chefs, cookbook authors, and food artisans into their kitchen, to share their delicious recipes.
Fast forward to 2018, after a very long hiatus, Julie and her brother Jon decided to breathe new life into the website, blog, and cooking show, and give the website a fresh makeover and new look. The recipes are plant-based with a fresh, farm-to-table spin. Julie and Jon are also all about design, and will be sharing DIY projects, easy entertaining, and so much more! They’ll be creating new podcasts and YouTube videos too, which they can’t wait to share. Julie and Jon continue to expand by teaching team building and leadership workshops all over the West Coast.
