A vegan diet consists of plants such as vegetables, fruits, pulses, grains and does not include any animal products such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy products and honey. This may seem like a limited diet to some, but with a little imagination you can create some beautiful and delicious dishes that even the non-vegans would be happy to eat!

Back 2014 the charity ‘Veganuary’ was launched, encouraging people to try a vegan diet throughout the month of January. With over 150,000 people taking part in 2018, it is set to be a record breaking year!

With this in mind and the ever growing number of people choosing veganism as a life choice, we have put together a list of our favourite vegan menu ideas, which might come in useful for your next event!


Bitesized Guac Tortillas

Guacamole, red chilli and tomatoes in a tortilla shell.

"We would just like to thank you for making our Gold Wedding Anniversary such a memorable occasion. Once you and your daughter arrived we felt completely confident that the day would run smoothly.

The food was delicious, a sentiment echoed by all our guests and your services were quietly efficient. We would certainly employ your business for any future events."

“Your attention to detail from the conception to the night itself and the cleaning up was second to none. All our guests commented not only on how gorgeous the canapés were but also the excellent service from the team and boy were they kept busy! Glasses never seemed to run dry. The extra little touches were much appreciated.”


“I would like to thank Nick and all your staff at Francs Event Catering for providing the catering at our recent function for 75 people. The menus and food were excellent and many people have commented to me how much they enjoyed the food. Everything ran very smoothly, nothing was too much trouble, the staff were helpful and engaging and you were all so professional, yet friendly too. In addition I can say that dealing with you from the very first meeting when ideas were being discussed to the day itself, was a pleasure. I would definitely use you again and strongly recommend you to anyone else”


“The party was a fabulous success, and thank you so much for all that you did to help make this possible. The food, and service were fantastic thank you - we had very, many compliments about the catering and service, in glowing terms.”


“Many thanks for, yet again, making our summer barbecue a day to remember!
You and your team were excellent - enabling us to really relax and enjoy the event knowing you were on hand to organise everything. Your staff were professional and attended to our guest’s requirements so efficiently. As with previous years, being able to arrange everything through yourselves - glasses, crockery, staff etc. really made planning the event alongside you a please from start to finish. The food was again exceptional - several people are still commenting on how phenomenal the beef was.”
"I just wanted to take the opportunity to express my thanks for the excellent catering services provided. The carefully chosen selection of canapés fitted perfectly with the Parisian theme of the evening and the service was extremely professional.”
"I want to thank you and your team for all your hard work as well as your professionalism and excellence on the day. The food was fabulous and of a very high standard. You had to work to a very tight schedule and had less than a month to organise a menu and hot food for almost 200 people, and this is something that we would like to say a special thank you for.”


"I just wanted to take the time to thank you, Nick and your team for throwing superb event for us on Saturday night. The food was of an exceptional standard, all the guests commented on the quality. I find it hard to understand how Nick and his team were able to deliver food that good to so many people from our garage. The service was uniformly perfect no one was short of a drink, top up or food all night. All delivered with reassuring professionalism and engaging friendliness. The organisation was seamless and completely trouble free dove tailing with the other service providers. I can’t recommend Francs catering enough."

"Hi Louise, Nick and Kate

We just wanted to give our heartfelt thanks for creating such a smoothly ran operation at our home a few weeks ago. The stress was quelled from the start with your professionalism and assurances that what we wanted could easily be achieved for 30 friends and family. But besides taking on all the organising you did for us we really must mention the canapés and dinner you prepared for all of us. Mouthwatering, perfectly cooked and presented: all from my kitchen! You are truly the epitome of efficiency and made the whole affair so worth doing. You were even discreet throughout the meal and even cleared up everything after too. So worth it! Thanks again"

"Omg! What can I say? Incredible food! Everyone is singing your praises! It's not everyday that I get up staged! Thank you so much for all your hard work and making Jim's 90th so special. Wedding here we come!"


"I wanted to say how absolutely delighted we were with the catering at the ball! Everyone was very happy with the food and really enjoyed it. Our guests with special dietary requirements also commented on how well they were looked after!

Thank you so very much for such a professional service, we wouldn’t hesitate to book Francs again!"


"We chose Francs to do the catering for our wedding in October 2018...We weren’t disappointed, as they cooked & served one of the best meals we’ve ever had, all from a small kitchen in a village hall. We had a great tasting session at Sale FC Rugby Club where 4 of us were able to sample each menu choice that we’d discussed in a previous meeting, and were helped to decide what we wanted on the night.  

We will definitely be using Francs again in the future, as they combined superb food quality & excellent service within an overall affordable price."

"We would like to thank Francs for providing such a great catering experience for our 20th Anniversary Party at the Marquee Room, Bowdon Rugby Club on 27th April, 2019.  Louise was great to work with throughout the entire process, from designing our menu, to planning the order of events of the evening, and very accommodating of any changes we needed to make in the run-up to the party . The menu was thoughtfully planned, with special consideration for options for our vegetarian and vegan guests – all of whom raved about the food!

We at the Medicines Evaluation Unit would strongly recommend Francs for catering for any event - they played an integral part in making our 20th Anniversary celebration a great success!"


"Just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for a great night on Saturday at the Bowdon Summer Party.  The feedback from the food has been absolutely first class.  Everyone loved the street food vibe and all the comments have been brilliant.  All your staff are really great as well – super professional and incredibly helpful."

'Fortunately Francs Event Catering was recommended to us as the best in the area as they did everything to confirm this leadership. Organisationally they gave us total confidence that whatever we needed they could handle and on the night nothing was too much trouble. The food was 'wonderful' and due to meticulous planning was enjoyed by everybody despite many different dietary requirements. We can do nothing but confirm that without their flair and professionalism our evening would not have been it's undoubted success. Our many thanks to Louise and her team.'

"Louise, Nick and team at Francs have been absolutely amazing in catering our wedding in Derbyshire in June 2019! Right from the start Louise put us at ease in terms of the planning side, helping us navigate the blank canvas venue that we had picked in Derbyshire with numerous phone calls - going above and beyond! We had canapés and a full wedding breakfast for 120 people with quite an array of dietary requirements. Not only was the food utterly delicious throughout and highly complimented, but Nick and team also had to battle pretty extreme weather conditions with a storm hitting just as we sat down to eat! We barely noticed the inclement weather, such was the smoothness of the service! Francs served all the drinks from champagne through to staffing the bar in the evening - all in good humour and they were extremely accommodating of the drinks menu we’d picked with a gin bar! The next day Francs came back and did the lions share of the cleaning up - a massive help! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Francs to anyone and would certainly use them in the future!"


"We were delighted that we used Francs for our wedding catering. From the initial meeting to the end result we were looked after and nothing was too much trouble. The food options were great and the food on the day was lovely and plentiful. Our wedding reception went off without a hitch thanks to Louise and her diligence. We would highly recommend to anyone requiring catering for a function."


“Many, many thanks for Saturday; superb, exactly the right food choices and many people afterwards, commented on how good the food was. It all looked so well presented as well, and your organisation was perfectly executed. Your assistant also was very helpful…a credit to you and to your company.”

Liz & Paul

"Thank you for all your  hard work and professionalism in making our joint 60th birthday party such a success. In the run up to the event your schedule was so useful in giving us a checklist to make sure that no detail was overlooked, which meant that we felt in safe hands.

On the night you and your staff were so friendly and helpful to all our guests, going above and beyond our expectations as “caterers” - it felt like we had event organisers on hand, helping with lots of little details which meant we could concentrate on our guests, some of whom we hadn’t seen for a long time, which was great. Everyone commented on how great the food was, which meant that we had a lot of very happy guests.

Thank you for your massive contribution to a very memorable event for us."
