Want to try eating vegan but don’t know where to start? Let me help you! I can make your weekly meal planning easy as (vegan) pie with my personal chef, date night and catering services. My personal chef and date night set-up services are only available to Orlando, Oviedo, Winter Park, and Kissimmee Florida area residents. My catering services are available in Orlando, Oviedo, Winter Park, and Kissimmee year round and Naples and Fort Myers during holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years) and for events planned 30 days in advance.

Personal Chef Services:

We meet in person or over the phone and chat about what you’re looking for. You create a Pinterest account to help me out. Just save any thing that looks yummy to a food board that I can check out when planning your week. This helps me find out what kind of food you like.

I shop for the food, cook the food, and do the cleaning! I will even drive to you and cook in front of you if you like, or I can prepare it in my kitchen and bring it to you on a scheduled day and time. I can only shop the items you will need for your meal, or I can bring you home a whole big weeks worth of (all vegan) groceries.

I can choose and create your weekly meals catered to your interests, or you can ask me to veganize specific dishes you are craving that week. We can even incorporate other diet preferences (keto-vegan, paleo-vegan, gluten free-vegan, soy free-vegan etc) I can really customize this for you in anyway you want.

I create a weekly plan for 3-4 pre-made meals (choose to serve 2, 4 or 6 people). I can also add easy vegan snacks, baked goods or breakfast options if you choose. All aspects of the dish will be pre-prepared as needed to last you the week, with instructions included on how to reheat and put it all together.

Some examples of previous client’s weeks:

Vegan beef and chicken cheesy enchiladas, vegan beef bourguignon, a big green Brussel sprout, basil balsamic salad, and vegan oatmeal cream cookie sandwiches

Pad thai veggie noodle stir fry, vegan chicken parmesan over whole wheat noodles, and homemade edamame and mushroom dumplings over a crisp bean sprouts and cucumber salad

Vegan mac and cheese, vegan sweet and sour chicken with green veggies and quinoa, and vegan chicken pot pie

Date Night Services:

Date night events can be planned three ways. Firstly, I can prepare the whole 3 course meal so that all you really need to do is open a bottle of wine, light the candles and heat up the food! Secondly, I can have aspects of the meal pre-made, so that you can semi-cook for your boo or you two can make it together. Thirdly, I can cook in front of you two, and give a little look into what cooking this kind of meal looks like, all vegan of course.

Catering Services:

Catering events are planned based off of how many people you have (8+), and what kind of food you would want. Usually this is done with buffet style serving dishes. Catering events could include birthdays, parties, baby showers, bridal showers, holiday parties, weddings and other celebrations. We offer wedding catering at one of our favorite locations in the Orlando area, The Veranda at Thornton Park.

The Peaceful Plate services can also provide sweets such as small cakes and cupcakes, or we can also suggest other vegan bakers to go for for specialized needs or ideas.

Food choices vary a whole lot! We have a pre-made, 50+ item list of awesome food dishes and recipes pre-developed here at Peaceful Plate available for different catering events. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, we can come up with a personalized plan, although we think there is something for everyone here. Here is an example catering menu:

Pricing:

Quotes can be prepared after talking over the food planning. Payment for weekly meal prep and date night personal services is hourly (the drive and cleanup included), but is designed to be less than what you may spend eating out in a week + buying groceries. We will get a quote working when we begin to plan what your weekly food plan looks like. Quotes take into account how many people your meals are prepped for, and how many meals each week. Per household the full process of prep time, drive time, planning time, and grocery time is usually kept under 7 hours. The hourly rate changes based off of how many people you have, since I try to not go over the 7 hours while still making more food. For 2-4 people making 3-4 meals, hourly payment starts at $17 an hour.

Date night pricing will include a 50% deposit and finalized menu a week before the dinner. Price changes based off of what kind of date night you are interested in.

Payment for catering events is based only on how many people we are feeding. For a standard 3 main courses and 3 side dishes, prices start at $26 per person. Smaller and larger events can be determined based off of the event needs.

Think this sounds like something that could change your life for the better? I would love to chat about your interest and discuss more details! Email me at “theveganpeacefulplate@gmail.com” to get started!
