Gourmet Vegan Dinner
Rowan College at Burlington County Culinary Arts Center
Wednesday December 12, 6:45pm
Vaulted Cuisine, 1 High St, Mt Holly, NJ 08060

Join NJveg for a special 4-course vegan dinner, prepared by RCBCCAC students!
We’ve had very enjoyable meals there the last 7 semesters and are continuing our tradition this semester!
These dinners assure the students – future chefs – that providing vegan options is essential.  A gift of a vegan cookbook is made to each student as additional encouragement!

View the menu and photos from the May 2018 dinner here.

(DRAFT) All-vegan menu:

  • Shaved Brussels sprout salad (Coconut bacon, Roasted Portobello mushrooms, mustard vinaigrette)
  • Vegetable soup (Dashi broth, roasted vegetables, fregola pasta, chili oil)
  • Pappardelle Ragu (Dinosaur kale and white bean ragu with fresh semolina pasta)
  • Dessert trio (Cake, ice cream, crème brulee)


Space is limited, so reserve your seat now (last semester sold out)!  Pre-payment is required.  Register here by December 5.  After 12/5, please contact us to see if space is still available, and for payment instructions.  NJveg members:  $27; Non-members:  $30 (includes tax and soft drinks; an optional gratuity toward a student scholarship fund is extra)
