The semi-finalist of this year’s MasterChef, Alexandra Talbot, has created a selection of vegan puddings to launch at a major UK pub company.
A selection of Fuller’s pubs will stock the desserts created by Talbot along with two of the company’s head chefs.
The mouthwatering selection of 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
Talbot was within touching distance of winning the MasterChef crown in the 2019 series, in which she was praised for her vegan dishes including a silken tofu panacotta dessert.
She said in a statement: “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.”
The options will be available in The Holly Bush and The White Hart for the next six to eight weeks, but they could be kept as a mainstay if they’re successful.
Head Chef of The Holly Bush in Hampstead, Jamie Stone, said: “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.”
