A year ago Tesco appointed chef Derek Sarno as Director of Plant Based Innovation to oversee the creation of its own Wicked Kitchen vegan food label.

"People looking for plant centredoptions for holiday meals no longer need to worry about being considered an afterthought at the Christmas dinner table or party.


"From party food treats to doubling the amount of veg centre pieces,素食主义者在圣诞节从来没有比现在有更多的选择,how wicked is that!"
