There is a definite shift towards embracing a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, whether it becomes a permanent choice or a regular commitment to plant-based meals.
We love sharing our passion for veg through some of the courses we teach and dishes we cook here at River Cottage. As Hugh says "whoever we are, and however we choose to eat, it is without doubt a very good idea to make vibrant, nutritious plant foods the basis of our diets".
It can be difficult to step out of traditional food expectations at Christmas and try something new or cater for guests with mixed dietary requirements. With a little bit of planning, a vegetarian or vegan centre-piece can be just as delicious and indulgent as a roast bird or meat joint. We are often asked what we make for our River Cottage veggie and vegan guests over the festive period so we thought we would share our tips and recipes this week. Keep an eye on our social media this week to be inspired!
