Cooks&Co gets the vegetarian and vegan seal of approval

Fine food specialist Cooks&Co has secured vegan and vegetarian approval for a host of its most popular plant-based offerings.

The Vegetarian Society dual stamp of approval will apply to more than 50 products in the brand’s comprehensive retail range, including its Great Taste Award-winning Roasted Red Peppers (RSP: £2.80, 460g), which are available in Tesco, Ocado and via the brand’s own online shop at http://www.cooksandco.co.uk/

Other great-tasting treats to get both Vegetarian and Vegan approved status are some of the ambient food brand’s most popular flavoured olives, including its new Deli Pot range, which promises to score a hit with olive lovers looking for deli-quality olives on the go, or as great additions to any cocktail, dinner or plant-based antipasto plate. The range features four flavoursome varieties, including the finest quality black Kalamata Olives with Wild Oregano, as well as succulent green Halkidiki Olives marinated with Lemon, Garlic & Rosemary; Garlic, Parsley & Onions; or Peppers & Garlic (various RSPs £2.29-£2.49, 160g).

Cooks&Co’s wide range of ingredients and meal accompaniments also feature in the brand’s impressive list of vegetarian and vegan-friendly products,   including Cooks&Co Green Chillies (RRP: £1.60, 300g) – guaranteed to heat things up a little, and just perfect added to marinades or as a delicious and warming topping on plant-based pizzas.

Conversely, if you’re looking to cool things down, then Cooks&Co Hearts of Palm (RRP: £2.45, 400g) are the perfect antidote. Similar in taste to artichokes – with a texture like cooked asparagus – their mild, delicate taste make them a perfect addition to salads, as well as a perfect addition to French or Mediterranean flavours such as herbs and tomatoes.

Cooks&Co’s range of high-quality plant-based oils, including Coconut, Walnut, Black Truffle, White Truffle, Virgin Sesame, Hazelnut, Grapeseed and Olive Oil with Chilli (various RSPs) also make the list of Vegetarian Society-approved products, as well as a whole range of other delicious store cupboard favourites, including Pepperoncini Chilli Peppers (RSP: £1.60, 280g), Stuffed Vine Leaves (RSP: £3.49, 380g) and even a range of tasty and easy to prepare risottos and polentas (RSPs: £1.99-£2.49, 150-190g).

Cooks&Co spokesperson Anne-Marie Cannon explains: “With more and more of us discovering the joys of plant-based food and drink, it’s great for us to be able to give shoppers the assurance that we have a range of plant-based options that are delicious, easy to prepare, and both vegetarian and vegan-friendly.”
