Whet your appetite with pics while we get Vegan Thanksgiving ready for you!

Feeling a little hungry about now? If you made reservations for our Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner tonight, we’ve got some coming attraction shots to get you in the mood!

Our Celery Root Soup has been simmering on the stove:

The pears for the salad have been roasted…

…and the pumpkin seeds are waiting to be toasted while the cranberry vinaigrette stands by…

The Beggar’s Purses with Sweet Onion, Lentil, Quinoa, Wild Mushrooms and Sundried Cranberries are filled, tied up and ready to be baked.

Here are some of the wild mushrooms that went into stuffing them:

The Roasted Curried Butternut Squash Sauce is all ready to top them once they’re done…

The Brussels sprouts that will accompany them are here fresh, green and waiting for roasting…

…and the French chestnuts that will dress them are not far away…

Last but far from least, the pecan pie is also prepared…

So, there you have it: a glimpse of what awaits you tonight at our vegan Thanksgiving table. Hope these images will get you through the rest of your day and warm your spirits on a cold, rainy November afternoon. See you tonight for spiced wine cocktails and great feasting!

The menu for our Second Annual Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner is ready!

Our vegan pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Dinner was such a hit last year that we’re doing it again this year on Tuesday, November 22. This four-course dinner, at $45 per person plus tax and gratuity, will once again prove that a vegan Thanksgiving feast doesn’t have to mean sliced Tofurky and a pile of blah vegetables. (Wait ’til you see what we do with Brussels sprouts! Your school cafeteria never cooked them like this!)

First Course
Celery Root Soup with Granny Smith Apples
Chive Oil

Second Course
Roasted Pear and Toasted Pumpkin Seed Salad
Cranberry Vinaigrette

Entrée Course
Beggar’s Purses filled with Sweet Onion, Lentil, Quinoa, Wild Mushrooms, and Sun-Dried Cranberries

Our dinner will be served with a Spiced Wine Cocktail sure to put you in the holiday spirit.
