Here's something different for the Poconos - the land of heart-shaped bathtubs:

Vegan cooking.

Skytop Lodge in Skytop, Pa., is running a health-and-wellness series in September and October. As part of it, guests can order vegan dishes created by Rich Landau of Center City's Vedge.  

Landau is developing wild mushroom cioppino (tomato fennel broth, leeks, miniature potatoes) and roasted cauliflower steak (saffron sauce, fresh peas, rouille, toast).
