Yes, it’s here the one day of the year where vegetarians rule, the world over. We take time out to celebrate a diet that doesn’t include meat with some vegetarian food recipes for gourmets created by some top chefs.
As more people embrace vegetarianism and movements such as raw food increase, many people are seeking to reduce or eliminate meat from their diet. No matter what the reason there is no need to let creativity in the kitchen suffer.
We mark World Vegetarian Day with a selection of ten recipes created by prestigious chefs to highlight the vegetarian capacity of haute cuisine as well as the beauty and simplicity of cooking with vegetables.
So if you’re looking to impress some non-vegetarian friends or simply enjoy the finer things in life and practice your culinary skills have a look at this line up of fine vegetarian food recipes. Even the most hardened of meat eaters will forget they’re meat free. From the beautiful simplicity of Mauro Colagreco's pan fried wild mushrooms and Cracco's white truffle on tagliolini to horseradish croquettes from Ernesto Iaccarino there's a twist on the everyday and a treat for all on this meat free autumnal day.
