NEW TRADITIONS: Christmas recipes for a vegan future. By Emily Wilkinson
“I thought my traditions were over when I went vegan. I thought Christmas as I knew it was over. I thought my favourite traditional foods- the meat- and dairy- heavy Lancashire fare I ate as a child, and the new foods I’d discovered when I moved to Scotland- were out-of-bounds.
So I rethought my traditions.
These recipes are some of the results of my rethinking. They’re my old and not-so-old favourites, revised and reinvented for the people of an ethical future. To me, they’re meaningful not just because they’re familiar and comforting, but also because they represent what vegan food can and should (I think) be: a melding of old and new, familiar and unfamiliar, traditional and radical”.
