VidaVeganCon & Anniversary Event

It's been awhile since I sat down and put together a blog post, so I wanted to apologize for the delay.  Just last month I had the great opportunity to cater the VidaVeganCon Galarama & Silent Auction benefiting Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.  Both Gardein and EcoVegan were kind enough to donate some of their great products for me to create a menu around. Below is a copy of the menu.  I wanted to include something for everyone, taking dietary restrictions into account.

EcoVegan Mini Burgers
Gardein Crispy Tenders w/ our house recipe Sweet Mustard & BBQ Sauce
Thai Spring Rolls (Gluten Free)

Raw Salad Rolls (photo courtesy of Stephanie Christianson, click her name to see her blog)
Garlic French Bread w/ Spinach Artichoke Dip
The Galarama was a great event.  There was a never-ending line of hungry bloggers waiting for pizza from Sizzie Pie, the (vegan) caterer, and sundae bar from Coconut Bliss.  I want to thank my two assistants one of which was a volunteer that walked into the chaos and never skipped a beat.  
I would love to hear from anyway that was there.  Also it would be great to see some of your pictures from that night.  Last but not least I wanted to thank Jess, Michelle, and Janessa for putting together such a great Conference and Galarama.  These three put so much time into planning this and I believe they really did a great job.  I'm really looking forward to doing more events with them in the future.


Also fairly recently we had the opportunity to cater an anniversary party for a great couple at the North Star Ballroom here in Portland.  Be sure to check that place out for your next event.  It was all hors d'oeuvres menu and Sweet Pea Bakery provided cake make out of cupcakes.

Here's what the menu looked like.

Hawaiian Kabobs

Fresh Fruit Kabobs

BBQ Soy Roast Sandwiches
Veggie Platter w/ Spinach Artichoke Dip
Homemade French Bread
Thanks again Portland for supporting a local small vegan business.  Please contact me through my website for all of your catering and event needs.  I've got some great plans to grow over the next year but I cant do it without your support.

  2. I was at the Galarama too, and your food was AMAZING!!!!! I especially loved the mini burgers! I didn't get to try the spring rolls b/c they were out when I went through the line, but they look beautiful!
