Beyond Stereotypical Vegetarian Fare

Catering, EMEA, Service Provider News

UK independent caterer Bartlett Mitchell has announced a new partnership with top vegetarian and vegan chef Andrew Dargue of restaurant Vanilla Black.



In his role as consultant chef, Dargue will provide chef training, masterclasses and events for BM customers and pioneer chef tables and pop-ups featuring his innovative blend of plant-based cuisine. The collaboration supports the growing demand for quality and innovative vegetarian and vegan cooking, with the objective of creating original, meat-free, dishes that offer customers new menu options beyond stereotypical vegetarian and vegan fare.

 

Commenting on the partnership, Dargue, said:

"What I love about Bartlett Mitchell is the company is both professional and approachable, and it absolutely doesn’t pay lip-service to vegetarian menus.

"I can’t wait to share my enthusiasm for creating exciting meat-free dishes with BM chefs and further showcasing the world of culinary opportunity that vegetarian and vegan food has to offer."



Pete Redman, Bartlett Mitchell chef director, added:

"We mean it when we say we want to create original veggie dishes.

"We relish the challenge of working without meat and fish to create delicious dishes for our customers and by collaborating with Andrew, we’re in the perfect position to do just that."



Dargue opened Vanilla Black in York in 2004, relocating the restaurant to London four years later where his contemporary menu featuring unusual ingredients and unique flavour combinations quickly earned a recommendation from the Michelin Guide and two AA Rosettes.
