Autumn Gourmet feast

You don’t have to go out to enjoy a vegan gourmet feast – Richard Buckley shows you how to make your own with these fabulous recipes

Rich mushroom parfait with port glaze and a pea and shallot salad

The depth of flavour in this parfait is incredible – it’s one of those dishes that people can’t believe is made purely from plants. The parfait alone is well worth making, set in little pots and served with some crusty bread or carta di musica and a green salad. But if you want something a little more impressive, then adding the port glaze and pea salad really elevates the parfait.
