TESCO TEAM WITH BOSH! TO PROVIDE A PLANT-BASED CHRISTMAS FEAST
Tesco has teamed up with the people behind best-selling cookbook BOSH! to launch a plant-based Christmas feast called Vegmas.
The special five-course meal is designed to help people catering for vegan and vegetarian guests.
The menu is specially designed by BOSH! and curated by Tesco Executive Chef, Martyn Lee and Tesco Head of Plant-Based Innovation, Derek Sarno.
Henry Firth and Ian Theasby, better known as BOSH!, are renowned for their innovative recipes.
Firth, commented: “Christmas dinner is without a doubt our favourite meal of the year. It should be warming, indulgent and exciting. Whether you are a vegan or just fancy trying something different this year, we’ve teamed up with Tesco for Vegmas to create delicious, plant-based, festive food that everyone at the dinner table will be able to enjoy.”
Director of Plant-Based Innovation at Tesco, Derek Sarno, added: “There has never been a more relevant time for an event like Vegmas, with plant-based eating on the rise in the UK, and many people choosing to eat meat more mindfully each week.
"Holidays can be a time when already stretched home cooks can feel overwhelmed with cooking for everyone. Vegmas is designed to show how easy Tesco makes it to cater for all dietary needs and add more plants to your holiday tables – whether via easy and impressive pre-prepared items such as the Tesco Vegan Stuffed Butternut Squash centre piece – or by using some recipe inspiration”.
The event takes place in Shoreditch on Tuesday, 4 December.
Tickets have all sold out with all proceeds going to charities The Trussell Trust - which supports a network of foodbanks across the UK to provide emergency food to people in crisis - and FareShare, who redistribute surplus food to charities that turn into meals.
