09 Jan Vegan Catering in Vancouver by Savoury City
“Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything…veganism is not a ‘sacrifice.’ It is a joy.”
― Gary L. Francione
These days just having the family over for dinner can be a logistical quandary. It seems that everyone has very different dietary specifications, which very seldom seem to overlap! My sister is a vegetarian, but still eats chicken; my mother is on the “no carb” diet, and is currently swearing off bread and pasta; my father is essentially paleo and thinks that salad is not a meal but more of a promissory note that meat of some kind (any kind) will soon arrive; and my brother-in-law will eat anything you put in front of him!
From Trepidacious to Thrilled!
So, it is no wonder that when our clients ask us to cater a vegan event, they do so with a certain amount of trepidation, as they know that many family members and friends may be less than thrilled at the prospect of a no meat, no dairy affair. It’s hard enough to please 4 people, let alone 104! But our clients need not fear–we’ve been custom catering for many years, and take pride in the fact that we can make most any request a success! Our passion is creating menus that not only meet expectations but exceed them! We really love that!
Flavour, Quality, Creativity and Expertise
As Gary Francione says, “veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything.” We agree! Indeed, a well-thought-out vegan menu will have your most staunch carnivore coming back for seconds! It’s all about flavour, quality of ingredients, fresh, organic products, know-how, technique and the experience of our Head Honcho, Donna, our Executive Chef, Mathew, and their team of experts–The catering dream team!
