Searching for a vegan wedding caterer, we were impressed by the menu on Vegan Peasant’s website. Their dishes sounded so damn tasty we just had to make contact.
We didn’t have particular food in mind for our wedding but simply wanted to impress our guests, many of whom were determinedly and resolutely underwhelmed by any description beginning in ‘veg’ and ending in ‘an.’
Diana put together a menu to budget, which included a satisfying mixture of filling, flavoursome dishes, inventive salads and a nice simple dessert. She changed the two items we were less keen on without fuss.
As the day drew closer, we started to question our choice. Was it really wise to book a caterer without having tasted their food? Had we been led astray by the promise of exotic words like ‘concasse?’ What if it was awful? Or worse – bland? Time was short and we had no choice but to trust their credentials.
As it turned out, we had no need to worry. The food was everything we hoped for. Every guest complimented the food and it would be fair to say that a few of them raved about it (in a good way). Northerners who had joked about rabbit food for weeks were asking if it would be OK to go for seconds. Die-hard carnivores who refuse vegetables as a matter of honour were wolfing down tagine. The vegans were saying it was the best vegan food they’d tasted and one poor bloke who had been put off vegan food for life by a childhood surfeit of nut cutlets was sure he could happily go vegan if it tasted like this.
This alone would have been enough but I have to add that the staff have consistently shown patience, professionalism, good humour and grace under pressure. Not to lay it on too thick, I would whole-heartedly recommend Vegan Peasant.
