Vegan Christmas Banquet at Opera Plaza

Savor a beautiful vegan Christmas banquet, Wed. Dec. 18 at 6 pm, in the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco. Experience an incredible outpouring of holiday dishes, main dishes, side dishes, sauces, beverages, desserts. A full-course banquet will be served, in the ambiance of beautiful holiday decor and live music for the season.

And it is ALL vegan, ALL health-supporting, no eggs, dairy, honey or added sugars. Prepared by a certified Nutrition Consultant, Patricia Allen Koot, NE, NC, this holiday banquet is more than a taste sensation. It is house-made from quality organic non-GMO ingredients, and includes important nutrients to help keep you healthy and cope with the stress of the holiday season.

Here is a partial menu for the banquet:

Tabletop Appetizing Nibbles
Kale, Plum & Hazelnut salad
Fresh Cranberry & Citrus Relish
Patricia's Artisan Smoky & Sweet Roast
Herbed Mushroom Gravy
Grains & Greens Baked Dressing
Simply Sweet Potatoes
Holiday Vegetable Casserole
Peppermint Carob Cake
Yuletide Punch and Herbal Tea

But there is so much more. Patricia explains it all at the time dinner is served.

And not only is it a full banquet, it is all you can eat. Literally. Those of you who enjoyed our Thanksgiving Banquet this year, know what I am talking about. We have resolved the difficulty which came up last year. Many more people showed up than had RSVP'd and as a result there was not as much for everyone as we would have liked.

We have solved that by going with Eventbrite. Purchase your ticket in advance, and receive a discount. And that also helps the Nutritionist plan enough food for everyone.

While savoring the various dishes, enjoy holiday dinner music. After the banquet, be treated to live entertainment by Freddy Clarke, who is a fabulous guitarist and singer. After his performance, you are invited to stay for a Christmas sing-along.

And what is the cost for this evening of fine, healthy food, pleasant socializing in a beautiful holiday setting, and live entertainment? It is incredibly low. If you get your ticket in advance through Eventbrite, is is only $15. per person. Otherwise, it is $20. at the door. Kids under 12 eat free.

Here is the link to get your tickets:

Location is the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco. Take the elevator to the first floor, then security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event.

    I should have asked this before, but are the dishes gluten-free? I have a strong sensitivity to gluten and cannot eat it.
