Tips for a Vegan Dinner Party
Get all the Details
Now, since you’re hiring private chefs for your dinner, you get the benefit of customizing your menu with the chef’s help. However, before you begin, do a bit of research to ensure that your menu exceeds your guests’ expectations.
Before determining the menu, find out exactly what all your guests CAN eat. And remember, there is a huge difference between a vegan and a vegetarian. By asking them about their specific needs, you’ll only make your guest feel welcome and well-cared for.
Offer them the Menu Beforehand
This is a very straightforward way of taking the pressure off your own self. Before the feast, email a simple planned menu to your guest and include all the ingredients that are used and ask them about their opinion.
Ask them if they have any request for a dish. This will ensure that your chefs haven’t added any ingredient they won’t be able to consume.
As mentioned before, you will receive a customized menu from us, thanks to our personal chefs who will create a complete plan according to your needs. But if you want to try a hands-on approach, you can head to the internet and write down a list of meals that you may like to try.
This is a very good opportunity for all the foodies out there since you get to have a meal made by a professional in the gastronomical field.
As a host, you have to be extra careful about interacting during the meal.
Be sure your vegan guest does not feel singled out because of their eating choices. If during the party, the topic turns to why a person isn’t eating a specific meal, give the guest a chance to address the group.
But don’t let them be singled out for long. While some vegans may be okay with discussing their diet habits, others may feel uncomfortable.
With all this information and a little help from Indulge in NY, we are sure that your dinner party will tick all the right boxes for all guests who expect a decadent meal and an amazing night!
