Vegan Wedding Catering by Real Food Daily

When vegetarian Chelsea Clinton got married, there’s was much ado made about her choice to serve meat at her wedding. Chelsea’s not the only veggie devotee who’s opted to feed hungry guests the animal-based foods they’re accustomed to. Most brides and grooms want to please their guests with great food, and it’s not always easy  to find a vegan caterer to prepare a sophisticated and satisfying meal. Unless you’re lucky enough to live here in Southern California, where the beloved organic kosher vegan restaurant Real Food Daily is now offering full-service catering for weddings and events. Yippee!! <!–more–>

Real Food Daily will bring organic vegan deliciousness to your wedding day. Cute server not included.

One of the most important elements of a green wedding is the food, and the factory farming of meat and processing of animal-based foods are damaging to the environment. When you choose to serve all-vegan food at your wedding, you’re reducing your carbon footprint tremendously, having the least possible impact on the environment. The folks at Real Food Daily understand your commitment to the environment, and so they source all of their ingredients from organic farms, use bio-compostable containers and recycled products, and participate in a program that recycles cooking oil to create bio-fuel.

Seitan steak, mashed potatoes, golden gravy, and fresh green beans – yum!

But that’s just the icing on the vegan wedding cake. The best part about RFD is the FOOD! Their healthy green fare is so delicious that your guests won’t miss meat for a moment. It’s always exciting to serve a room full of meat eaters a truly top-notch vegan meal, because it opens them up to eating more plant-based foods. And a wedding is the perfect opportunity to introduce and indulge guests with gourmet vegan fare. Remember when I had a chat with Alicia Silverstone about her vegan wedding? Alicia served up an entire menu of local, seasonal, plant-based foods, and said that even her most devotedly carnivorous guests were raving about how delicious it was. (Alicia also happens to be a fan of Real Food Daily!)

RFD will even stock your bar with delicious all-natural beverages

To test my theory that Real Food Daily can satisfy even the hungriest meat-eater, I brought my burger-loving buddy Alison along for a tasting at the Santa Monica restaurant a few weeks ago. We got to sample tons of delicious foods from the catering menu (yes, I have a cool job!) and Alison said it was one of the most delicious meals she’d ever had. Period. It wasn’t just, “this is good for vegan food” good. It was “holy wowza this is the best enchilada I’ve ever eaten!” good. After our amazing tasting, I threw together this sample menu of what I would serve if RFD were catering my own wedding:

Real Food Daily can even make you a beautiful wedding cake like the one below, in flavors like gluten-free chocolate, carrot walnut, German chocolate raspberry, and more. And the best part? Healthy, earth-conscious food won’t cost you an arm and a leg! RFD’s prices are comparable to, and in many cases less expensive than a conventional caterer.

  1. Its healthy and good for the environment to be a vegan though it may take a little time to get used to it. But begin totally vegan even for your wedding is something great. It is surprising that vegan cakes can be as delicious as they look on these photos here. Visit http://www.ascotcatering.com.au
