Listen to your mother! Hopefully you do, and you appreciate her enough to take her to a nice feast in her honor. We're presenting a nice 6 course feast, complete with 2 complimentary glasses of champagne (or a fancy n/a beverage) for your dear sweet ma. She'd most certainly tell you to eat your vegetables, and there will be many deliciously prepared vegetables to be had.

Menu detail

2 Free glasses of Champagne for Mom! (or N/A alternative)
Your mom deserves a fancy beverage to go with the meal in her honor. We'll provide a couple of glasses of nice Champagne to go with her meal. If she doesn't imbibe, we're going to be providing other non-alcoholic sparkling creations as well. Drink menu TBD.
Blini with Cashew Creme Fraiche and Kelp Caviar
Freshly made buckwheat blini, topped with our cashew creme fraiche, and a bit of kelp caviar and dill
Pecan and Herb Cheese Ball with Housemade Crackers
Did your mom ever serve a 'cheese ball' with crackers at a party or holiday gathering? Mine didn't, but I hear it's a thing, and we do love to make vegan cheeses! We've aged our cashew cheeses 2 months so that they have a nice sharpness, and will combine them with our fresh cream cheese to make a nice cheese ball that we roll in toasted pecans and fresh herbs. Served with homemade crackers
Asparagus, citrus, sesame, hollandaise
Blanched asparagus, pomelo, warm hollandaise, and smoked sesame cracker. Eat your vegetables.
Carrots and Peas
Small Plate
Shelling peas, fava beans, koji-cured carrots, pea mousse, with harissa spice and sauce. Doused with fresh herbs.
Fancy Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes, and Black Garlic Truffle Gravy
We make a fantastic herb-crusted 'meat loaf' with shiitake mushrooms, black beans, Japanese semi-brown rice, and our own spice blend, and will serve it along side some piping hot mashed potatoes, and our truffled black garlic gravy. Probably not better than moms, but we'll try...
Dessert by Jamie Podgorny of Fritz Pastry Fame!
Jaime is a fantastic vegan pastry chef, and is going to be contributing a dessert for this dinner! She mentioned mini pies, but for the moment, we're going to leave the dessert TBD. Once she looks at the menu and decides what to make, we'll post it on here. That said, whatever she makes will be fantastic.
