The Vegetarian Gourmet began as a vision to delight its customers with innovative, seasonal, internationally inspired menus. Chef Margaret Riesen brings her love of marvelous food and her passion for fresh, organic ingredients from her native Switzerland and international heritage. She loves the challenge of creating spectacular meals which appeal to vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Menus are seasonal and celebrate the bounty of the Bay Area’s organic harvest, and feature specialties from the Mediterranean rim, the Americas, India, Southeast Asia, and selected European cuisines.
We provide elegant, full-service catering for all occasions. Menus are customized to suit your needs and budget, and are prepared with love and expertise from locally sourced, seasonal, sustainably grown ingredients.
