It’s a Revolution!

It’s a Revolution! From plant based proteins, meat alternatives, and blended burgers, the options of joining the vegetable revolution are endless.

The Menus of Change initiative is another way to band together to create well-balanced and sustainable menus. This program is designed to help chefs learn and grow with the ever changing wellness and sustainability values. Goals of the program line up with the Vegetable Revolution – increase produce purchases, reduce beef purchases, and increase whole grain purchases – all qualities of a healthy and sustainable diet.

According to a study released by Wakefield Research, 55% of US residents plan to eat more plant-based foods. Millennials are showing the greatest interest with 60% of Americans aged 21-34 consuming plant-based meals. Reports also show the global livestock industry contributes a significant amount of global greenhouse gas emissions and the World Health Organization announced the consumption of red and processed meats can increase the risk of certain cancers. Join the veg revolution and push vegetables back to the center of the plate! Delicious menus that offer choice, meet consumer demand, and reduce the carbon footprint associated with meat and other animal-based products are the tenets of this revolution. We are focused on teaching new ways to prepare a “veg-centric” meal, keeping vegetables at the center of the plate, with bold and balanced flavor profiles in place of traditional meat and sides. CulinArt is committed to

  • Increasing produce purchases
  • Increasing whole grain purchases,
  • Decreasing beef purchases,
  • Inspiring our guests to make healthier choices in our cafes through menus and messaging with flavor first.

This month, enjoy the fresh flavors, health benefits, and environmental stewardship of veg-centric meals!

What our clients are saying

“I would like to thank you and your staff for helping to make our Annual Holiday Party a Great Success.  You did an Amazing job from the décor, the food and the service you provided! I have heard nothing but great comments. As always, I enjoyed working with you and your team.”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”
