things NOT to ask/say to a baker! - Page 197

I made my cake icon_biggrin.gif We were married in Vegas and had our reception two weeks later back in the UK. I was finishing it off in my wedding dress 5 minutes before we had to leave. It wasn't quite as stressful though as if it had been the actual wedding, so I enjoyed most of it icon_smile.gif

We had a small wedding (50 guests) and a small menu for people to choose from rather than a set dish placed in front of you.  One of our guests was, and still is, a die hard vegetarian, so one of our main courses was vegetarian.  The really surprising thing was that a lot of the guests went for this choice, even though most of them had not tried true vegetarian before and really enjoyed it. Keep in mind this was 31 years ago and a lot of people thought that vegetarians just sat down and ate a plate of vegies.

Well, a lot of people have themes and so on for their weddings; dress codes for the guests and so on. If I was invited to a vegan wedding but didn't think the fare would satisfy, I would just get my burger or steak before the wedding, or after for that matter. And don't underestimate the power of proper spices on veggies and pastas. Yummy.

I am not a vegetarian, so I serve meat.  But I also know that if my guests will have a good time, I should have vegetarian foods available for them to enjoy. 

 

Why, if we "force" people to eat meat, are we considered bad people, but if we "force" people to eat vegan/vegetarian, then we are heroes for" helping" them?

 

Bride/groom is hosting a party.  They have guests to take care of.  I find it rude to force people to eat food YOU like, with no consideration whether the guests like it or not.


Ditto!

i just don't see a vegan meal as being that abnormal/abominable even if it's a salad and some hot steamed veggies --

 

i've had cauliflower dishes that rivaled the finest beef and perfect incredible french fries made from chick peas -- it's amazing what all veggies can do and i think the wedding couple should serve what they want to serve in the name of good health and fellowship in celebration of the new family not a time for politics -- it's about the couple imo

 

the b & g are paying for it too or their parents so they get to serve whatever they want -- no one is forced to eat it --

I've done a vegan version of my late mother's famous shortbread cookies, using Earth Balance. They had a bit of a piecrust texture to them, but they worked, and tasted almost as good as the normal ones (half butter, half margarine).

. . . and perfect incredible french fries made from chick peas . . .

And why would vegan French fries have to be made from garbanzos? The last time I checked, potatoes were still considered vegetables.

:D:P:D

james -- bwuwahahaha you so funny -- i know right! the story is that we did a favor for our son's chef and he called in a favor and got a us a reservation at ubuntu, napa california but it was an incredible once in a lifetime experience -- i mean i wanted regular fries but they weren't on the menu -- it was amazing and unfortunately it's closed now --

 

cevamal -- they tasted better than potatoes but not like garbonzo beans either -- if you didn't know they were beans you'd think they were potatoes -- it was crazy and crazy good

I would never force dietary choices on people, but then again I don't view being vegan as a dietary choice. The decision to adopt a vegan diet is almost always based on the moral opposition to killing an animal for consumption and the farming of a living creature for their biological products. These values are deeply held and I have a huge amount of respect for that.

 

I have (fantastic) recipes without eggs, milk, or white sugar for any vegan requests, and totally separate pans for pareve cakes. I love my customers and wouldn't want them to ever compromise.
