Fall is in the air and very soon we’ll be planning some of our most special gatherings around the Holidays, surrounded by friends, family and great food! We’re always so grateful that each year we get to be a part of so many wonderful corporate and private celebrations of this special time of year, and releasing our Holiday Menus each year is something the entire team looks forward to.
And we are absolutely THRILLED to announce that our popular Holiday Pick-Up service is back for both Thanksgiving AND Christmas! We had such a great response last year that it was a no-brainer to offer this service to our clients again this year. Based on the feedback we collected, we’ve improved
This year, we’ve decided to offer a plant-based turkey alternative on both of our corporate packages, as well as our pickup menu. Drew and our kitchen team have developed a delicious, plant-based turkey alternative in-house that has successfully won over even the most die-hard “meat and potatoes” eaters who have sampled it, and we’re excited to showcase it to our clients this year. The rest of the menu features delicious vegan sides, salads and desserts with familiar flavours just as comforting as traditional Holiday fare.
We made the decision to offer a plant-based turkey alternative this Holiday season for a number of reasons:
During our menu development process, our team concluded that the vast majority of turkeys consumed over the Holiday season are not produced in an ethical or sustainable fashion, and were not in line with our values as a company.
Second, it was a significant step to show our commitment to achieving our company’s overall goal of reducing animal products on our menus by 50% by the end of 2018. Making this choice during one of the busiest times of the entire year gave us a big opportunity to make an impact, promote sustainable food choices and make our clients happy at the same time.
Lastly, we strongly believe the dishes we developed provide a “no-compromise” experience for guests accustomed to traditional Holiday fare.
We understand this may be a tougher sell for some groups, and will still have our full a la carte menu available featuring Oceanwise seafood and ethically sourced proteins, should you wish to add or include a meat item to the package. You may customize the Holiday packages to best suit the tastes of your group, just let our team know and we’re happy to take care of this for you.
We sincerely hope you’ll enjoy the menus and consider a plant-based alternative to turkey for your annual Holiday party!
