Begin with kale, chestnut and mushroom bonbons with cherry sauce, an easy to prepare and freeze-ahead starter. It’s the perfect partnership of kale and chestnut mushrooms with the surprise of sweet cherry.
The main course vegan showstoppers delve into deep winter flavours – and are great with roast potatoes and all the trimmings. A whole roasted cauliflower with broccoli and walnut stuffing and grilled brassica leaves –a tasty way to use all of the cauliflower, including the leaves.

Round your meal off with some delicious and decadent vegan desserts. Take a slice of pomegranate cheesecake topped with ruby-red pomegranate seeds. Delight your guests with pistachio panna cotta, elderflower cream and white chocolate crumb. Feeling daring? Then try pasta for dessert – chocolate ravioli with mince pie filling served with a chocolate sauce.
