The mains menu at Vanilla Black
Vanilla Black, which opened in 2008 near Chancery Lane in London, epitomises the trend. It is one of only two Michelin-recommended vegetarian restaurants in Britain, alongside Brighton’s long-established Terre à Terre.

“It’s very classical, the way we cook,” said Vanilla Black’s head chef and co-founder Andrew Dargue. “We don’t cook for vegetarians, we cook vegetarian food. And we don’t market it to vegetarians, we market it so that the concept appeals to everybody.”

Between 50% and 60% of its clientele are meat-eaters. Their favourite dishes include poached duck egg and Ribblesdale cheese pudding.

If you would like to make this mouth watering recipe, Andrew Dargue, the owner of Vanilla Black has kindly let us publish his recipe – see our Recipe page.
