About Us

Fancy Plants Kitchen is a dedicated team of professionals who are intent on creating ever greater experiences in the arena of plant based cooking, and is the creation of chef/owner Kevin Schuder. 

Kevin grew up in the small village of Ephraim Wisconsin, and in 2005 decided to move to San Francisco to train in high end restaurants to be a vegan chef.  Starting at Millennium Restaurant, he helped open 2 wine bars, worked at Waterbar, AQ, Izakaya Yuzuki, and with the venerable Amaryll Schwertener before staking out on his own again with his successful pop-up restaurant Veg388.  He became the executive chef of a large vegan restaurant project, and won a San Francisco Iron Chef. In 2016 he moved to Chicago, started Fancy Plants Catering, in 2019 Fancy Plants Cafe, and now Fancy Plants Kitchen.

Thanksgiving Catering

I am so excited about Thanksgiving this year.

If you want to skip the song and dance where I tell you all about it, you can simply click HERE and order your food.

Order pickup is available 11/23 and 11/24 at 1443 W. Fullerton Avenue.

I'm excited for Thanksgiving because I'm doing something classic.
I think our menu has been pretty similar the past few years, and I wouldn't change a dish. Preparing it is like a meditation at this point. Make it nice! Make it with love. So many vegan and vegetarian folks go to visit family and relatives, and their meals are relegated to eating some frozen vegetables or something. Mashed potatoes? Vegans can eat butter, right?

You ever been through this experience?

Well, never fear, we have you covered!

Fancy Plants Catering is once again providing an excellent holiday meal for you with simple printed instructions, so you can pop a thing in the oven while you watch tv with family, and voila, moments later you have a cornucopia of delectable dishes that will make your meat munching Aunt Mable jealous.

We like cooking with depth, but we also like to add a little life and brightness to dinner. Yes, even in the winter!

Here is the menu for you to take home:

Thanksgiving Feast 2022!

$36 Per Person

1) Provencal Herb-Crusted Mushroom, Walnut, and Black-Bean Loaf

2) Mashed Potatoes

3) Black Garlic Mushroom Gravy

4) House-Made Real Cranberry Jelly

5) Spinach Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette, Fennel, Hazelnut, Riesling Poached Pears

6) Wok Seared Brussels Sprouts with Tempeh Bacon and Onions

Our Vegan Thanksgiving Feast menu is all gluten free, and available a la carte or as full Dinner Packages.


We also have Pumpkin Pie (contains gluten) for dessert, in two sizes: A 4" Pie for 1 -2 servings, or a 9" pie for more!


This entire menu is designed to travel and reheat well while keeping its integrity.

If you are interested, please reserve your meals early as we may have a cutoff for ordering.  

I highly recommend reserving early and picking up your order on Wednesday, so you can beat all the traffic and avoid the stress! 

We strongly encourage people who dine together to order together to reduce packaging.

We look forward to seeing your smiling face and handing you your holiday meal soon!
