MasterChef semi-finalist Alexandra Talbot has teamed up with two of Fuller’s talented head chefs to create new vegan puddings to feature on the menu at selected Fuller’s pubs for a limited time.
The amount of choice available to vegans on restaurant menus has come on leaps and bounds in recent years with companies competing with each other to offer customers the biggest, most delicious number of vegan options.
However, one area that many restaurants fail to give proper consideration to is their desserts, with vegans often left to choose between fruit salad and sorbet.
In a bid to give vegan customers a mouth-watering selection of puddings to choose from, Fuller’s pub chain has teamed up with MasterChef semi-finalist Alexandra Talbot to create new vegan puddings to feature on the menu at selected Fuller’s pubs for a limited time.
Alexandra was recently a semi-finalist on the 2019 series of MasterChef where she was highly praised by Michelin Star Chef Alexis Gauthier on the programme for her vegan silken tofu pannacotta dessert – which he described as being “the future of food”.
Teaming up with Fuller’s Head Chefs, Jamie Stone of The Holly Bush in Hampstead and David Green of The White Hart in Stockbridge, Alexandra collaborated with the team to create nine new vegan puddings to feature on their menus.
The truly tantalising puddings include:
- Salted chocolate fondant
- Raspberry cashew mousse
- Lime and coconut panna cotta with a coconut crumb
- Strawberry trifle
- Raspberry mille-feuille
- Cardamom, vanilla and blood orange rice pudding
- Jaffa cake
- Salted caramel and apple strudel with crème anglaise
- Millionaire shortbread with raspberry and coconut sorbet
Speaking about the collaboration in a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Alexandra said: “The vegan movement is now very strong, with many individuals choosing to have a meat-free eating day a week. I have been a pescatarian for almost 30 years and remember how hard it was to find something on a menu when I went out. I think we all have a responsibility to give people choice and food needs to be interesting and accessible to anyone, whether you eat meat or not.”
Head Chef of The Holly Bush in Hampstead, Jamie Stone, added: “For me, creating plant-based dishes is one of my main focuses – I’ve spent the past few months creating more vegan options for my restaurant menu and incorporating this into my own life as well, so it was great to have the opportunity to collaborate with Alexandra and David.”
The vegan puddings will be available as chef signature specials at The Holly Bush and The White Hart for the next six to eight weeks, with all Fuller’s Kitchens having the opportunity to feature the special puddings on their own menus if they choose to.
