DEMAND: New Forest Hotel Launches ‘Vegan Christmas’


1 Minutes Read

In a sign of how much demand for vegan food is rising, Careys Manor Hotel in the New Forest has launched a vegan Christmas menu.

A spokesperson says: “Careys Manor is perfect for anyone who hankers after a relaxed, quintessentially country house Christmas, with squashy sofas in front of roaring log fires, carols sung by a choir, golden lights twinkling on a huge Christmas tree, and a harpist playing softly in the background.”

And now Head Chef Alistair Craig has devised a bespoke vegan menu.


Starters include celeriac and apple soup with roast apple, a risotto of butternut squash with hazelnuts, sage and pickled onion, and salt-backed beetroot, panisse, coconut yogurt and walnuts. 

The main event could be chestnut, parsnip and quinoa-stuffed cabbage with roast root vegetables and caramelised onion, roast spiced cauliflower with lentils, greens, onion bhaji and pickled golden raisins, or salt-baked celeriac with smoked mushrooms, Jerusalem artichoke, black garlic and Brussel sprouts.

A selection of puddings includes roast pear with stem ginger, prunes and Armagnac, and crispy brique pastry, a raisin and kumquat compote with oat streusel and clementine sorbet, and a dark chocolate and coconut delice with mango, and passionfruit sorbet and cardamom.


On top of that, Careys Manor has created a festive vegan tea.

Tasty treats include fruit scones, sandwiches, and pastries including a pear, prune and Armagnac terrine with a chickpea meringue, a cinnamon and peanut butter rice crispy cake, and a coconut milk truffle.

Merry Christmas!
