I had a fantastic time at your dinner party on Saturday evening. I am still enjoying the chocolates. I am really looking forward to experiencing your hospitality again, and in the meantime I hope to see you at Chatsworth Road market.

Thank you so much, a great evening, the food was superb. Donna is now wondering how we can ever go out and eat again. Whatever you do, we want more of it. - Gavin

About Diana Pinkett

Diana Pinkett spent much of her time growing up in the kitchen of her childhood home. As a youngster, one could always find her standing next to the stove chatting away with her Mother as she prepared meals for the family or watching intently as her Grandmother baked her delicious breads and cakes. Her childhood memories are filled with wonderful times around the dining table: sharing, laughing, talking, and eating great food.

Diana found it difficult to adjust to eating cafeteria-style food while attending the University of Vermont. It was during this time in the early 90’s that she adopted the vegan lifestyle, which would become her life’s passion.

After leaving University, Diana spent many years traveling the globe: teaching snowboarding, exploring, and sampling foods from around the world. Her journeys brought her from Quebec to northern California and then to Switzerland where she met her future partner A G Smith. Equally passionate about travel, the two embarked on their trip of a lifetime – cycling all the way from Kerala, India through Pakistan, Iran and mainland Europe back to London. It was a trip that lasted 11 months. They met so many amazing locals; shared so many wonderful meals.

It was upon their return to London that they realised how much food brought people together. It was this very realisation that spawned Vegan Peasant Catering.

Vegan Peasant Catering is for anyone looking for a formal 100% plant-based dining experience. They specialise in creating the most elegant canapés and delicious bowl foods, that are pure vegetarian - sustainable, ethical and inclusive too!

Clients love the globally inspired cuisine. Vegan Peasant Catering love that they are able to that to impress their client’s guests, vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike. But most of all, they are happy to provide bespoke solutions and they are great to work with too.

About Adrian Smith

Adrian Smith is the head chef and creative partner of Veganpeasant catering. Adrian’s career spans almost 20 years in the catering and hospitality industry as both a chef and manager. He brings his experience and enthusiasm to design inspired menus.

He attended Plymouth C.F.E and continued his training at Mister Barrett’s restaurant, a number of bistros and even a pizza joint. Fast forward to Brighton and an opportunity to work at Terre a Terre restaurant one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the UK.

Adrian catered for large scale events working on private celebrations and corporate functions, while working in several Brighton restaurants and hotels. He spent several winter seasons in the Swiss Alps and the arctic tundra of Finland working as a personal chef and enjoying snowboarding in his spare time.

After moving to London, Adrian worked as chef and catering manager for a contract catering company. He worked as head chef and unit manager to college and university on site facilities as well as catering shows and outside events. With a passion for fresh and vibrant flavours, Adrian adopts influences from the spicy foods of South India to the fresh herbs and plump olives of the Mediterranean. When not in a kitchen Adrian can usually be found on his bicycle. He has travelled and cycle toured through India back to the UK enjoying a firsthand experience of many food cultures.

Dear Diana and Adrian I had a fantastic time at your dinner party on Saturday evening. I am still enjoying the chocolates. I am really looking forward to experiencing your hospitality again, and in the meantime I hope to see you at the Chatsworth Road market.
