With food trends changing, and people becoming more conscious of what they are putting into their bodies, it can be much more difficult to have your event or wedding catered. Especially with the notion that being vegan or a vegetarian is “boring” consisting of just vegetables and fruits- but you can show your guest it is so much more! Our chefs have experience in making well-presented vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free dishes without sacrificing any flavour. The dishes will wow your non-vegan guest and satisfy everyone’s taste buds, which will be a gentle way to introduce new foods, and even educate your friends and family.
Whether you are vegan, and eliminate all animal products, vegetarian and eliminate meats (and eggs), or gluten free at Truffles Fine Foods we will work with you to help meet your (and your guest) dietary needs.
Let us share one of our full vegan menus including a cocktail hour for one of our most recent weddings.
