My Big Fat Seitan & Mash Vegetarian Wedding


I receive a number of emails requesting local veg catering suggestions. When it came time to plan my own wedding, I realized how little I knew about the city's options.

Wedding food is a predictable beast. You have to walk in knowing exactly what you want, or you'll just get a crudite station and stacks of fried vegetables coated in sauce. What's more exciting than salmon? I thought the answer would be "Everything."

For our first tasting, we went with Max Hansen, who brought our ideas to fruition, without suggesting the word "crudite" even once. The goal was a global feast composed of vibrant, seasonal ingredients, a focus on presentation that didn't lose sense of flavor. We were looking for a real chef's chef. We wanted to communicate a fine dining experience that would remind guests of a feast at Horizons.

Here's a little taste.
