Culinary Capers Catering Vegan Luncheon Menu

Vegan food is a strong trend because the new generation of chefs have embraced cooking  vegan dishes and are coming up with some amazingly creative and delicious dishes.   We are noticing a bigger demand for vegan and vegetarian due to the public’s increasing intolerance to different foods.  Switching to a plant-based diet is also an effective way for an individual to reduce their eco-footprint.  Vegan and vegetarian diets can produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than meat-based diets.  Here is a vegan menu we created for clients visiting our kitchen the other day.

Culinary Capers’ vegan menu was developed by Sous Chef Kris, a staunch carnivore herself. A menu favourite was her housemade macadamia nut “cheese” that was cultured over 3-days.
Chef David plating up the free form vegan ravioli. The pasta was made with semolina flour, water and soft tofu.
Pastry Chef Kim re-engineered our traditional apple crisp by replacing oats with quinoa flakes. She used coconut milk in the caramel sauce and replaced butter with coconut oil in the apple crisp.
