A very merry vegmas: A plant-based Christmas feast by Tesco and vegan cooking influencers, Bosh!
December 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Scallops made from mushrooms, plant-based pigs in blankets and vegan wine: it’s Christmas dinner as you’ve never seen it before, as Tesco pairs with vegan cooking duo, BOSH!, to present ‘Vegmas’, a special five-course plant-based festive feast designed to help people catering for vegan and vegetarian guests, or looking to add more plants to their table.
This exclusive event will see diners immersed into a clandestine, plant-filled space in the most unlikely of urban environments. Hidden beneath the railway arches in Shoreditch, London, vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will see nature take over, as they enjoy a plant-based Christmas dinner from a menu specially designed by BOSH! and curated by Tesco Executive Chef, Martyn Lee and Tesco Head of Plant-Based Innovation, Derek Sarno.
Putting plant-based spins on classic festive dishes, guests will enjoy vegan wine and canapés, king oyster mushroom ‘scallops’ to start and vegan ‘bangers in blankets’ as part of their main course. Certain dishes in the menu will also include items from the Tesco vegan Christmas range, such as the Vegan Stuffed Butternut Squash, which is stuffed with a tangy beetroot and apple filling, and topped with crunchy, colourful pumpkin and sunflower seeds – ideal for vegan hosts or those looking to impress guests.
Parts of the menu will even be ‘crowd sourced’, with BOSH!’s 364,000 Instagram followers being asked to vote for the dessert to be served to guests on the night: Christmas-spiced sticky toffee pudding or a mincemeat tart, both served with a luxurious cashew brandy cream.
There is a recommended donation of £15 for tickets which are available on Eventbrite now. All proceeds from ticket sales will go charity partners of Tesco – 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.
