Private Chef and Catering Services

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, or smaller finger food a la carte style. Catering events could include birthdays, parties, baby showers, bridal showers, holiday parties, weddings and anything else you would want some amazing food for. Catering is available in Orlando, Winter Park, Maitland, and Kissimmee. We offer wedding catering at one of our favorite locations in the Orlando area, The Veranda at Thornton Park, as well as others. 

The Peaceful Plate services can also provide sweets such as small cakes and cupcakes, or we can also suggest other vegan bakers to go to 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. Our menus are 100% vegan, and we can offer gluten free, nut free, or soy free options as needed. 

Please email theveganpeacefulplate@gmail.com to start a catering order, and to see our 50+ item catering menu. Please include the date of event, city it is located in, number of people and type of event, and dietary restrictions you know of in your email. 

Here is an example catering menu from a past wedding event:

Catering Pricing and Ordering:

Payment for catering events is based on how many people we are feeding, and how many dishes you would want. For a standard, buffet style 3 main courses and 3 side dishes, prices start at $25 per person. Smaller and larger events can be determined based off of the event needs.

For finger food style catering (think pigs in blankets, bruchetta squares, hush puppies type of deal) pricing starts at $17 per person for 5 options, this would be “all you can eat” style. Smaller and larger events can be determined based off of event needs. 

Catering is also available a la carte style, such as in the holiday catering menus above. You can purchase single dishes for 8, 12, 15, 18, 24, or 36 people. Parties larger than this should order buffet style catering. For this style catering you can order up to 3 single items from any category before turning into a package deal. Basic package includes 1 main dish, 3 side dishes, 1 dessert and either a bread with dip or salad. VIP package includes 2 main dishes, 5 side dishes, 2 desserts, and both bread with dip and a salad. Please reach out via email if you are interested in this catering, to inquire about our current a la carte menu as our options change seasonally, and pricing. Generally, pricing ranges per dish and how many people you have. This will be around $3-4 per serving for “main dishes”, $2-3 per serving for side dishes, and $1.50-$2.50 per serving for desserts. 

An 8 person minimum is required for catering orders, and a 25% non-refundable down payment is required to secure your catering order. The rest of the payment will be required 48 hours before order pickup. If you cancel within 48 hours of your order pick up date there will be no refunds. Catering orders must be placed a week in advance for parties larger than 36, or 3 days in advance for parties of 8-36. 

Private Chef Services:

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 as your personal chef. This service is available in Orlando, Oviedo, and Winter Park. My goal is to bring you delicious, healthy, home cooked plant-based meals that inspire you to live a passionate life. Here’s how it works:

Shoot me an email about what you’re interested in. Then, we can meet in person or over the phone and chat about what you’re looking for and your personal or your family’s goals. You create a Pinterest account to help me out. Just save anything 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

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 per weel. 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.

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!
