First off, how many people are vegetarian and will be going with this option? I’m leaning toward the mushroom dish because 2 curry dishes may be an overkill for some people, but if its just a few people eating the vegetarian meal, then maybe it will matter less. Why won’t the caterers let you taste both options? I wouldn’t want to pick a dish I hadn’t tasted.

I’m a vegetarian and I would prefer the risotto. I don’t like mushrooms and the risotto sounds good.

I think I would go with the mushroom dish. Like you said, that would probably be a lot of curry, and curry is a very divisive flavor. So if you have a vegetarian who doesn’t like curry, they can only eat the first course. The curry dish also has cilantro which many have taste aversions to as well, plus issues with nuts for those who might be allergic. 

That said, if you know you will only have a few choose the veggie option and they all like curry (I personally love it!) then go for it. Or you could reach out to them individually and get their opinions before you make your choice.

mrsnyctola :  Your menu sounds awesome! I think the mushroom ragout does sound like the better choice except that you weren’t thrilled with it. Was it BAD, as in you don’t think anyone would like it, or maybe just some things weren’t to your specific taste? Honestly, they both sound really good and I wouldn’t worry too much.

Risotto doesnt usually have cream, just cheese and butter. I’d think it’s pretty fall-ey, but curry can be super polarizing. 

I would have picked the mushroom, but if it was awful then change it.

I’d prefer the risotto personally, but is there really no other option?  Could you not express your cocnerns about too much curry and see what else they might suggest?  Or are they totally inflexible?

Both dishes SOUND good but I’m not sure I’d be able to choose something I had never tried OR something I didn’t like.

Was the Wild Mushroom Ragout ontop of argula? Was the argula sauteed or raw?

I was leaning more towards the Wild Mushroom Ragout, but not if its ontop of raw argula… That is too much like a second salad. But then I saw you were having Curry Sweet Potato soup (Omg sounds amazing) and that might be too much curry. 

Are those really the only 2 options? I think a goat cheese butternut squash ravioli would be to die for with this menu. If these are your only 2 options I think I would probably go the Curried Vegetable Risotto. It is the safer choice. I know a lot of people who hate mushrooms and if they try to eat around the mushrooms then that doesn’t leave much food for them to eat.

Veggie here – I would do the curry as the mushroom ragout contains parmesan, which isn’t suitable for vegetarians as to be called parmesan legally (in the EU at least) it must be traditionally made using calves rennet.

It may be worth checking if your venue if they are using genuine parmesan, or an alternative parmesan style cheese. If the latter, and the alternative cheese is suitable for vegetarians, I’d go with whichever you prefer of the two smile

I wouldn’t do a curried veg risotto main after a curried sweet potato soup. So if you go with the risotto, change the soup.

eirlys :  Risotto also (like 99% of the time) contains parmesan.
