A 3-Course Vegan Culinary Extravaganza

Vegan Scallops and Pea Purée with a Vegan Bacon Crumb

This delicious way of using king oyster mushrooms will surprise you. The texture is very similar to scallops and pairing it with the sweet pea puree and bacon crumbs, is the perfect combination.

Celeriac Steak, Sautéed Mushrooms and Salsa Verde with Toasted Pinenuts

Celeriac is an underrated vegetable. Its celery aniseed flavour is perfect for the pungent salsa verde. Add some crunch with pinenuts and finish with sauteed mushrooms.

Vanilla Panna Cotta and Mango Pulp

A dairy free variation of an Italian classic, this pannacotta will have the perfect wobble for a light end to any meal. Easy to prepare in advance, just store in the fridge ready to be eaten.
