Our Vegan Christmas Guide
Christmas is all about quality time and quality food, but it can be a tricky time to be vegan with so many dining events to attend. If you’re not a vegan but you’ve got a plant-based-pal coming over for the big meal, it can be quite the challenge. Whether you’re catering for a party of hungry vegans or determined to wow your meat-eating family members with delicious plant-based food, Christmas is a time to go all-out with a delicious feast.
If you’re looking for a premium dining experience free of animal products this December, then look no further. Here at Dineindulge our talented private chefs have created a vegan menu for you. However, if you’re looking for something a bit more Christmassy, then our vegetarian Christmas menu is easily adapted to accommodate your vegan guests.
If you’ve never catered for a vegan before, save your overwhelmed googling and have a little scroll over our top tips for the Merriest vegan Christmas.
1. Keep it traditional
Why not update your traditional Christmas classics with Vegan alternatives? Here at Dineindulge we believe there’s no reason for your vegan guests to give up the perfect roast potatoes, or even their favourite glazed carrots & parsnips. Stuffing, everyone’s favourite Christmas component, is equally delicious with chestnuts and herbs.
So, if this is your first vegan Christmas and you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, then why not speak to our events team to get more information on our vegan Christmas menu and side dishes.
2. Be organised
If you’re eating a vegan diet and you’re a guest around someone else’s table this Christmas, make sure to flag this to whoever’s in charge of food well in advance. All of our menus are easily adapted to accommodate vegan guests, just let our events team know post booking and they can email over some alterations.
3. Vegan Cheese Platter
With meat spreads and cheese plates being the go-to Xmas nibble, the plant-based guests can often go hungry. So, why not add a selection of vegan cheeses to your Dineindulge meal for your guests to enjoy, speak to our events team in the post-booking stage and they will be able to assist.
4. Our favourite cream alternative
Cream is a Chrimbo staple, and one that we can’t really ignore. We all love to drain our festive desserts with it, so its lucky that switching your classic dairy with a cashew version is easy, delicious and the perfect dairy free accompaniment to your pud.
5. Vegan Wine
Christmas is a time to come together with your family and loved ones and enjoy a nice tipple. Don’t forget to provide a selection of wine for your vegan guests. Dineindulge is partners with Majestic Wine and have a selection of delicious vegan wines.
