Have you ever wondered how to cater a vegan wedding reception feast that even the most red-blooded, meat-eating guests will eat with enthusiasm?
Believe it or not, it is possible.
Since more and more people are eating vegetarian, advances in vegetarian cuisine have created a dazzling array of exotic, beautiful, and delicious vegetarian entrees, hors d’ oeuvres, side dishes and deserts, sure to please even the pickiest palate.
And if you are thinking of serving a vegan or vegetarian meal, don’t forget desert.
Remember that your vegan and vegetarian guests might not like, or even be able to eat a cake that contains eggs, butter, or milk.
And as more and more people are developing allergies to wheat and gluten, you might want to consider getting your vegan wedding cake made at vegan bakery that can make a gorgeous and tasty eggless-butterless-flourless cake.
If you’ve never tried bakery goods like these, you’ll be astonished at just how tasty they can be.
If you don’t know of a good vegan or vegetarian bakery in your area, then get on the Internet.
There are websites that can direct you vegan bakers in your city or state with only a few keystrokes.
What could be easier than that?
You can even make your wine list organic, if you wish.
There many fine organic wineries on the Internet that can ship you whatever red, or white wines you desire, even your magnum of wedding night champagne, too.
There are also organic beers available, and vegan-friendly liquors to stock your bar with.
Did you know that some liquors are made with animal products?
That was news to me, but apparently it’s true.
Some liquors are filtered through charcoal that’s made from bone meal.
If you want to find out which liquor products are vegan friendly, then just type that phrase into your search engine and begin exploring.
For vegan hors d’ oeuvres, I favor yummy finger foods from various ethnic cuisines such as feather-light Vietnamese spring rolls, meatless meatballs in Jamaican jerk sauce, pita triangles and hummus, or even simple crudités, cut up chunks of carrot, broccoli, squash, celery, and grape tomatoes served with a dairy-less dipping sauce.
Some of the soy cheeses are absolutely delicious and are almost indistinguishable from their dairy counterparts.
Serve them with some high-quality crackers or good, hearty bread like rye with caraway seeds or pumpernickel, cut into thin slices for a delicious appetizer.
Personally, I think having a wide variety of appetizers is a great way to start the meal, especially if you are only offering one vegan entrée.
That way no one will leave the table hungry.
