Oh, by the way, the new arrival’s a vegetarian… If you’re in charge of catering, and despite your best intentions, these words are likely to cause an immediate response: one that is quite possibly negative! But, don’t despair. With a little thought and planning, vegetarians and vegans need not create a lot of extra work. This guide makes it easier to make meals an enjoyable experience for your vegetarian or vegan diners. Perhaps you’ll get a few tips to help in catering for your non-vegetarians too?
