Here at Hunters of Helmsley we’re looking forward to World
Vegetarian Day, an occasion that takes place each year on the 1st of
October. The day was established by the North American Vegetarian Society (the
N.A.V.S) in 1977 and has since gone on to be celebrated in schools, restaurants
and homes across the globe.
The N.A.V.S state their cause as hoping to ‘promote the joy,

Hunters love to enjoy vegetarian fare from across the globe and we
are proud to stock veggie delicacies to appeal to herbivores and meat-eaters
Starting out with something deliciously hearty during the run up to
the winter months, who could resist a cheese and leek puff pastry? Packed full
of flavour, these homemade delights are freshly baked in Helmsley and sure to
tantalise your taste buds!
Speaking of cheese… why not pick up a fabulous fromage to accompany
your tasty vegetarian meal? Some parmesan could add pizzazz to pea risotto,
whilst zingy stilton is sure to give your favourite broccoli soup a touch of
opulence, and a classic quiche could only be made even more delicious with the
addition of a quality cheddar cheese.
Perhaps you’re longing for a warming bowl of soup to savour whilst
autumn creeps in? We carry a range of Yorkshire Provender broths, soups and
bisques amongst others. A particular favourite here is the pea and spinach with
fresh mint, a tasty flavour which is perfect for getting those greens in.
Those seeking something slightly unusual can take a look at
Macsween’s Vegetarian Haggis, a real treat come Burns Night, or any other night
of the year for that matter! And once you’re full to the brim with savoury
sustenance it’s good to know that many chocolates are suitable for vegetarians.
We carry a vast range of the sweet stuff including treats from Yorkshire
Lauden, Whitakers and Ampleforth Plus.
