Fancy Plants Meal Delivery

Perhaps you remember when Fancy Plants Catering had a bustling weekly vegan meal plan delivery, but we put it on pause because we started up the cafe?
I’m proud to say we’ve revived our delivery, fused it with the cafe operation, and are starting a bigger, broader delivery service with the cafe being open for pickup as well!

Every day.

Now you can enjoy breakfast items, pastries, pantry staples, and thoughtful meals we’ve prepared for you at home.

Simply order the day before, and you can have dinner for several nights, and even some freshly baked vegan croissants the next morning.

Our entrees, sides, soups, salads, and vegan cheeses for delivery keep well for at least 5 days, and we’ll give you instructions and recommended expiration dates for anything you purchase, as well as share recipes and cooking tips.

Here’s how this works:

1) The order you place is for the next day, and there is a $40 minimum.  For smaller orders, you can simply call the cafe at (773) 857-1588, and you can check our regular inventory as well for same day pickup.

2) Our pickup hours are from 8:00 am – 4 pm at Fancy Plants Cafe, 613 W. Briar Place in the East Lakeview neighborhood.

3) The fee for delivery is $10, but free if you order over $200.  We’re currently only delivering to a broad radius surrounding the cafe on the the north side of Chicago, and our online store will let you know if you’re in our zone at checkout (you probably are.)  Curbside pickup is preferred, but we organized delivery to service people who might not have the means to come by

4) Our deliveries start at 9:00 each day, and run until 3:00.
Please specify if you have a certain time you would like delivered, and we will do our best to accommodate.

5) 10% of our sales will go preparing meals for people who are in a difficult financial situation, and will be available every Thursday at 3:00 pm.  Back when I was first starting to cook professionally at the fancy Millennium Restaurant in San Francisco, I had also started a soup kitchen for those in need in the Mission District in San Francisco.  We’ll be cooking for those in need here in Chicago.
Through the magic of cooking, even $100 can make 100 hearty portions of hearty soup, and we’re committed to helping all of us get through this.

When all of this blows over, we’ll be VERY excited to cook some inventive, fun, and thoughtful dinner parties, and hanging out with you at the cafe again.  Needless to say, 90% of our business involves a strong social aspect, but I can say with the utmost confidence that 100% of our business is built around the art of vegan cooking.

We are very devout cooks, and cook we shall.

We look forward to feeding you!

Four-Star Mushroom Dinner for 2: Available 8/1 & 8/2

SKU 00082

Product Details

We’re getting some excellent mushrooms grown by Chicagos very own FourStar Mushrooms for a lovely 5-course dinner this weekend!

This is one of our most popular menu themes, even as the ingredients and dishes change to fit the seasons.
That said, here is the menu for this fun dinner:

1) Smoked Black Trumpet Mushroom, Heirloom Tomato, and Blue Cheese Bruschetta: We’ll cook and hardwood smoke some excellent black trumpet mushrooms and mix them in with fresh heirloom tomatoes to serve on bruschetta, and top it off with our very own blue cheese made with actual Roquefort culture that has been aged for a month
2) King Trumpet Mushroom Ceviche with Chilled Sweetcorn Soup: We’ll briefly cook King Trumpet Mushrooms before marinating them in herbs and fresh squeezed citrus, and serve it over a chilled sweetcorn soup

3) Oyster Mushroom Pate with Crostini: We make a delectable mushroom pate using our vegan brie, and serve it with hazelnuts and our Nut and Seed Bread

4) Campenelle Pasta with Mushroom Ragout and Summer Vegetables: Campanella Pasta with Mushroom Ragout: Ragout of Fennel Braised Mushrooms, with Bloomsdale Spinach, Summer Squash, Tomato, White Wine and Herbs, topped with our Almond Parmesan. One of my favorite dishes. All you need to do is boil the pasta (we'll give instructions), heat up the sauce, mix, and grate over the parmesan!

5) Candy Cap Mushroom Candy Bar:
Candy cap mushrooms have a sweet maple flavor to them, and are actually primarily used in desserts in many fancy restaurants. We’ll be using them to make an excellent cashew based cheesecake that we’ll dip in chocolate to turn into a candy bar, similar to a ‘Three Musketeers.’ This probably sounds a bit crazy, but when you’ve had candy cap mushrooms, it’s difficult to think of it being used in a savory preparation. Surprise yourself! This dish is a hit

Thank you so much, and we look forward to feeding you!
