Melissa C.

Wedding and Event Catering

I honestly can’t properly express my gratitude for Shelley. I had the task to create a Vegan Organic Kosher wedding feast!! Shelley was my super hero !! We met via FaceTime for planning sessions as I live in CO and she’s in CA. She was so amazing and truly understood exactly what we were looking for. Food is our love language and having a chef that was as passionate as we are was a perfect fit. From the menu planning to the prepping to checking in the ingredients to serving and presenting - her service was spectacular!!! She also provided me with servers ! She created a gourmet vegan taco bar with the most heavanly cheese sauce! We finished the meal with a dessert table that included lime frosted vegan cupcakes with some Gluten Free. I look forward to working with Shelley over and over again and highly recommend her. Oh did I mention the drum line and the contact info for the sound bath meditation for the bride ?

Shelley did an incredible job! She was very personable and professional. She was able to keep up with the constant work flow of the thousands of attendees at our event and she made everything not only looking beautiful, but also tasting delicious. Our event attendees gave nothing but great feedback! We will definitely be working with her again in the near future, and we recommend you do the same!

Wedding Catering

We hired Shelley for our wedding in April and LOVED her work! When we met with her she was very interested in us and our preferences, and was very helpful in reigning our scatterbrained thoughts in. She offered an array of appetizers, garlic bread, green beans (the biggest hit of all our guests!), and a creamy pasta. Although we didn't use them, she could provide dinnerware. She even visited our venue with us to get an idea of the kitchen and facilities. We never got to try the appetizers because our guests cleaned them up, so they must have been good! All through the evening everyone was amazed how good the food was. The food truly exceeded our expectations, and working with Shelley was a joy as well. She and her staff were friendly, prompt, very professional, and she worked miracles with that food. Thank you so much!

Living Veg provides years of experience to their clients with professional expertise and a committed focus on details along with the personalization to what the client desires. When you add these qualities to the truly delicious food that is delivered, you have a very rare combination in catering that is 2nd to none. If you are looking for a caterer for any type of event, whether it be a small business lunch for a corporate meeting or a larger event, such as a beautiful wedding or other family celebration, I would strongly recommend that you contact Shelley at Living Veg. You will receive far more than you expect as well as an overall plan that will fit perfectly within your budget.

Shelly is outstanding - she really creates a menu suitable for your needs, her preparation and execution is top notch. Her food is flavorful and delicious. Her table side manner is refreshing - you can tell she truly cares about her craft and customers. What more can I say- hire her right now!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is very customized and we like to find a way to make it fit your budget and needs. Private cooking lessons/parties are a flat fee and then a small add on for each additional person. Call or email to get a list of all our services and general pricing.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We like to meet with customers first, ideally in person, but over the phone works too. It's helpful to understand a client's dietary needs and what they are accustomed to, then we can design a package for their event, cooking class, meal plan or whatever we dream up together.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I worked at a small culinary school for a while and learned from some incredible chefs, then proceeded to read every culinary school textbook I could lay my hands on. I proceeded to start a vegan bakery and catering biz I ran for 9 years. Now, as well as being a vegan chef, I've expanded to cooking classes and plant based consulting.
