Chelsea Clinton's Very Vegan Rehearsal Dinner

While most of the media’s attention has been focused on Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this Saturday, her rehearsal dinner on the eve of the big day is shaping up to be something worth mentioning as well.

For the purposes of this site especially, we’re excited to have some confirmation that the opening festivities will take place at Grasmere Farm — a 525-acre estate featuring two “magnificent Edwardian” 300-year-old stone barns. According to some rehearsal dinner invites leaked, guests have been told they’ll be dining in a “barn” and to wear “country chic” or cocktail apparel … but not “country casual.” I’m just as confused as to what defines country chic as some of you may be. A Google image search seems to run the gamut.

According to one source, the catering for the event is being done by Josh Kroner of the Terrapin Restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY. A quick look on UrbanSpoon finds that Terrapin is regarded as both vegan and gluten-free friendly — two qualities that no doubt aided in them landing the job. According to their catering page:

“Chef Josh Kroner is dedicated to creating fresh delicious food. He uses local, organic and seasonal items in all of his custom menus. Vegetarian options are always available, and special requests such as certain ethnic choices or vegan food can be prepared.”

No doubt there will also be some type of organic meat option offered keeping in line with the wedding day menu — but we applaud the effort to make sustainable choices whenever possible. And dig the whole “down on the farm” theme for the rehearsal dinner.
