Chefs Get Behind Vegan Fine Dining
It’s no secret that fine vegan dining is on the rise in London, thanks to chefs such as Ali Parvinjah, the creator of the vegan menu on offer at The Montagu, which has been awarded two AA rosettes and is located in the five-star Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill. For World Vegan Month, Chef Ali explains how the vegan movement in London has spread and gives viewers an exclusive look at some of his favourite plant-based recipes in our latest video.
“I have guests constantly telling me here at the restaurant The Montagu, ‘Chef, it was an epiphany. It was a rainbow of flavours'”, Chef Ali says. And diners aren’t the only ones who are excited about plant-based cooking. “The chefs here have completely embraced the move”, he says. “They want to be a part of it. … They feel that this is happening and … they have to stay on top of their game.”
And Chef Ali is at the forefront of the movement, even at home. In the video, he shares his recipe for his favourite breakfast smoothie – “Drink that”, he says, “and you’ll feel on top of cloud number nine for like 12, 10 hours” – as well as his tried-and-true method for cashew-based crème fraîche.
Whether you dine in five-star hotels or just fancy a takeaway in front of the TV, many cruelty-free meals are readily available. Why not try them out? Order PETA’s free vegan starter kit here:
