Steal This: “Eat Your Veggies” Event

Whether it's the perfect venue, caterer, florist, designer, or entertainers that WOW, potential clients can find them all here. Marcia Selden Catering & Events recently held an event planners dinner with Partyslate at its exclusive NYC venue, Above TwelveChef Robin Selden wanted to turn things upside down and created a delicious, entirely vegan multi-course 'storybook dinner'.

Each course focused on one fresh ingredient. The starter was tomato, and included tartare and sorbet. The corn featured a pudding, ribs, and bisque. The main course of mushrooms was transformed into a rich and satisfying "meat" lasagna.  Outrageous desserts were our Cast Iron Apple Crumble with almond ice cream and Chocolate Coconut Dream Cake with whipped coconut foam. It was exciting that the guests didn't realize that the entire menu was vegan until they were told at the end of the evening.

Oh Kale Yeah, this was a Big Dill for Team Selden! Here's a look for your next "Steal This" inspiration. All photos courtesy of the caterer.
