Halloween treats without the tricks
Slimy snails and black widow cake
3 October 2012
It’s dark and spooky, the pumpkins are carved, cobwebs in place and frightful happenings are on the cards – it’s time for a Halloween party. Disgust your friends and family with sumptuous slimy snails and scare the tooth fairy with black widow cake.
These Halloween high jinks are created by the Vegetarian Society without the use of animal ingredients – such as gelatine, animal fat or crushed beetles.
Team the slimy snails (savoury stuffed giant pasta shells) and black widow cake (liquorice flavoured loveliness) with spooky spuds with scary toppings, hocus pocus patatas bravas, lantern soup and devilish red cabbage – for a fiendish feast to please even your most ghoulish guests. Find the recipes online at www.vegsoc.org
The Cordon Vert cookery school created the two new recipes slimy snails and black widow cake. Cordon Vert teaches both the general public and professionals the many aspects of vegetarian cookery.
