Winteringham Fields will launch a new vegan menu this month that features a range of plant-based dishes from all over the world, with the expressed aim of “…making people change the way they think about food for good.”
The eight-dish vegan menu, which has been three months in the making, comes in response to an ‘almost frenzied’ demand from local vegans and vegetarians. All the new concoctions have been painstakingly created by patron chef, Colin McGurran and his team.
We always knew that if we were to create a vegan menu, it had to be be a Winteringham Fields vegan menu.
We want it to be incredible. Like nothing anyone’s ever tasted. The kind of vegan menu that would make the most fundamentalist meat-eater never want to see a steak again!
It took a lot of creating, experimenting, testing, and even a few disagreements, to get to where we wanted to be. And here we are.
The number of vegans in the UK is rising and has grown 350 per cent over the past ten years. There are currently over half a million vegans in the UK, which is more than one per cent of the population. 42 per cent of UK vegans are aged between 15 and 34. Whilst some have dismissed this as a “food-fad”, Colin believes it to be the start of something much more profound for the future of restaurants.
Whilst he wants to maintain the Winteringham Fields tradition of not revealing the exact details of the dishes until the night, he is convinced that the vegan menu will be a game-changer for many, and complete his vision for a totally inclusive approach to fine dining.
What we have now is a truly delicious and democratic menu that is done our way, and excludes no-one.
Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, diabetic, gluten-free or coeliac; a table of two or a large party each with different dietary needs, we prepare meals to suit all tastes, allergies, diets and lifestyle choices.
And, like all our dishes, they complement each other so well, have influences from all over the world but can largely be sourced from our doorstep. We are really, really pleased.
Based in the North Lincolnshire flatlands, just a few miles from the Humber Bridge, Michelin recommended Winteringham Fields has become one of the country’s leading homegrown restaurants. Led by Colin McGurran since 2005, it prides itself on sourcing ingredients locally, and conceived the ‘one-mile menu’.
The vegan menu will be launched on Friday June 15th. For more details visit: www.winteringhamfields.co.uk
