Top 5 meat free products for festive menus
Planning a festive menu wouldn’t be complete without those all-important meat free Christmas products. Consumers are continuing to eat less meat and therefore the meat free market has naturally grown.

This Christmas, we have plenty of delicious vegetarian and vegan menu must-haves and we’ve highlighted a few of them below.

Up first, we have our vegetarian Taiteur de Paris rivoli amuse-bouches (41572) – a decadent selection of four canapé varieties.

These mouth-watering bites include: 12 butternut squash, Emmental and onion mini cakes, topped with pumpkin seeds; 12 PDO Comte and béchamel in a petit choux; 12 rosti with spinach, cream and then finished with a grilled artichoke, and finally, 12 mini croquets with tomato coulis, mozzarella, rocket complete with a basil pesto drizzle.
