Chef Dinner: A Very Vegan Holiday

Join us for a holiday-themed Chef's Dinner with our Ida Dolce and Chef Pete Fernandez as they show you that plant-based cuisine can be exciting, stimulating and even indulgent. Ida and Pete know the holiday season can be exciting for vegans because of the wonderful, flavorful and colorful produce in season, which can be transformed into beautifully festive dishes. However, the holiday season can also be challenging for many vegans, as it historically focuses on meat-centric menus. This vegan meal will feature fresh, seasonal, holiday ingredients, as well as highlight both classic and modern cooking techniques and staples every vegan should have in their kitchen arsenal. Whether you are vegan or not, you'll enjoy this festive feast! 

Menu Includes:

    • Delicata Squash and Chestnut Stuffing with Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salata

    • Caramelized Fennel and Cashew "Cheese" Filled Mezzelune Pasta with Saffron Beurre Blanc and Fried Shallots

    • Rosemary and Hazelnut-Crusted Seitan Chops with Red Wine-Cranberry Reduction, Garlicy Mashed Potatoes and Charred Broccolini

    • Cake Trio Including: Gingerbread Cake with Swiss Meringue Brûlée, Purple Sweet Potato Cheesecake with Salt Block Pecan Brittle, Dark Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Irish Buttercream
