Should I Offer Vegetarian and Vegan Options at My Catering Event?

By January 19, 2018 Catering

Vegan and vegetarian diets are on the rise. More and more people are turning to these eating styles to become healthier and lose weight, and party guests are more health conscious than ever before. 2018 will be about going above and beyond offering vegetarian, organic, and all-natural options and including more vegan, raw, and plant-based plates. People want to find ways to incorporate proteins without eating meats. Let’s break down why you should consider offering more plant-based meals at your event.

Vegetarian and Vegan Meals

When people picture catering, they see traditional meals being served; appetizers, main courses, side dishes and desserts. Typically the entrée is meat with a choice of sides. People’s stance on this way of traditional eating is being influenced. Vegan and vegetarian popularity is growing rapidly today. Vegetarian restaurants and catering companies are popping up everywhere as a growing number of Americans are discovering the health benefits of eating green.

With a growing fan base for vegetarian diets. Vegetables are becoming the stars of the kitchen. Veggies are now the ‘cool’ thing to eat, and it’s our job to dress them up and present them to guests in the most appetizing way. You will see this in leading restaurants and it’s no stranger to the catering world. The variety of fun vegetables, as well as the unique ways chefs are preparing them, is going to inspire more meals with vegetables as the focal point rather than protein.

With a vegetarian or vegan menu, you may think that your menu options are limited, but this is completely untrue! Talented chefs like Chef Brian and the Crave Culinaire team have the ability to present familiar flavors and foods, but do so on an all plant-based pallet.

Offering vegan options means you’re opening the door to a whole new crowd, reaching out to people you would have never connected with when serving typical food.
