Filmore & Union’s Vegan Night back by popular demand

January 9, 2018 10:10 am

‘Feel good’ food and drink brand Filmore & Union is bringing back the popular Vegan Night it ran last summer on Thursday 25, Friday 26 and Saturday 27 January 2018 at its Harrogate, Jesmond, Ilkley, Skipton, York Petergate, Beverley and Wetherby restaurants. It has also introduced new vegan dishes to its breakfast, brunch, and lunch menus and is taking part in Vegan Restaurant Week (8-15 January) in the North East with 20% off all vegan dishes and drinks at its Jesmond restaurant.

Filmore & Union is well known for catering for all dietary requirements and has led the way in bringing a wide range of exciting vegan options to its restaurant and take out menus on local high streets in Yorkshire and the North East for several years. The Vegan Night event is an opportunity for customers to try the development chefs’ latest experiments with plant-based ingredients in eclectic new dishes that don’t compromise on taste or satisfaction, whether you are a devout vegan, embracing ‘Veganuary’, or just want to try something new.

The Vegan Night menu features vibrant dishes with earthy, bold flavours, contrasted with sweet notes and spices made from all-natural ingredients. Starter and dessert sharing boards provide couples and groups with the opportunity to try a range of new and exciting flavour combinations and ingredients, while the hearty main dishes showcase the best of Filmore & Union’s Yorkshire take on the latest wellness food trends. Dishes include Indian spiced pancake and coconut milk corn chowder, tofu Rendang curry, roasted butternut squash gnocchi, and a vegan espresso cheesecake. Most of the menu is also gluten free.

New vegan dishes on the main restaurant menu include a full English breakfast that contains a chickpea hash with spinach, Filmore baked beans, turmeric roasted tomatoes, field mushrooms and watercress, served with toasted vegan bread, and a pumpkin and sun blushed tomato gnocchi with kale hemp pesto and tahini maple dressing.

Filmore & Union founder and owner Adele Ashley says: “Plant based ingredients have always been a big part of our natural, wholesome menu here at Filmore & Union and it’s been great to see a huge growth in the popularity of vegan cuisine in recent years. However, according to our vegan customers and recent research by the Vegan Society, it’s still difficult for people to find a wide range of exciting, satisfying vegan options when eating out or on the go. Through our vegan night and constantly evolving menu, we want to show people that plant based eating is not boring and the flavour combinations can be sensational. After the success and popularity of the Vegan Night back in August 2017, we are looking forward to showcasing the dishes our development chefs have created this time, especially to those who are still cynical about trying vegan food or a vegan diet.”
