@jem123: As a vege also, I think the wording of the 2nd one does sound better.  It also gives you more information about what you will be getting.  Not everyone knows what root vegetables are. 

Given these two choices I think I would pick #2.

I think I would probably choose the second also, just because “three cheese pie” sounds too cheesy to me?  Like, it sounds as though it would just be cheese and crust.

Plus the other just sounds fancier, so maybe people want that for wedding food? 

ETA: I’m sure the pie is great – just wanted to make it clear that I am not insulting your pie choice.

I would go for n. 1!  When I eat veg I like to go for lots of hearty cheese, but I am also from Wisconsin.  That would be a big hit here.

Yeah, definitely say more about the pie – I wouldn’t know what was in it other than cheese and crust, which sounds awfully heavy/greasy. Everything else sounds amazing, though!

As a Veg of 22 years whose dad once asked, “if vegetarian is like an eating disorder”, it seems to me that one of the only veg dinner dishes that makes non-adventuresome eaters of mostly american, meat-based fare feel like they are eating normal food is pasta.

Honestly, I don’t have a sense of the dishes from the descriptions, but I’d probably pick the pasta too.  Three cheese pie sounds like it only has cheese in it, and that sounds way too rich for my taste.

gosh I love pasta, and that is more recognizable to me than “pie.” I would wonder, is it like a quiche, made with eggs, or what do you mean by pie??? also how much cheese is it (it sounds heavy). I actually know a lot of people who don’t like or can’t eat onions, so if they picked# 1 they would be most unhappy.

The first option has “cauliflower” in the wording, which might turn people off as it’s one of those veggies that many have negative associations with.


The second option uses words like “mash” and “confit.” Even though there is mash in the first one, it doesn’t sound as comforting.


Having said that, I’d take the cheese pie in a split second.

Then again…I’m a carnivore and would probably eat before the wedding! Wink

They both sound good but the cannelloni is making my mouth water (I’m also vegetarian)! Mmm.

I’m a vegetarian too!  I would pick the second option based on that description, but after reading your description of the pie I think I would go for that one, I sounds yummy!  I have to agree with Melini, the description gives me the impression that the filling is almost all cheese, and super rich.

Reading the first selection, I just get this vision in my head of bland, neutral colours…all whites and yellows.

The second sounds a lot more interesting and less monochromatic, I guess, which is why I would be more inclined to choose it. I like fresh, vibrant colours in my food and lots of variety. The words “salsa verde” make my mouth water.

Yay for veggie bees! I would probably pick the pie because I do get sick of eating pasta. I wish I had had all vegetarian food at my wedding, it was a buffet that was mostly vegetarian but not entirely and I felt bad animals suffered and died for my wedding 🙁 I was trying to make my guests happy but it still bothered me.

I’m a vegetarian, too and I’d totally scarf both! 🙂 

But I don’t like the word “mash” – could you list the three cheeses like “hearty vegetarian pie – Parmesan, Romano & Asiago blend with Winter Root Vegetables” or something along those lines? 

And not to bring her up, hehe… but Kim Kardashian had mashed potatoes at her wedding but it was “Yukon Gold Potato Puree” or something like that on the menu..

I would choose the second option too! If there were any further explanation of what are the three cheeses and some wording like “with onion stuffing”, I would definitely go for the pie though (I’m onion crazed). The “three cheese pie” made me question what kind of food it is.

The wording of the second option does sound fancier.  I personally would pick the 1st choice though, as a vegetarian since I’d be excited there was a non-pasta veggie option!

Our wedding was all vegetarian also!
