Pistachio Nut Cheese with Cranberry Jelly

  • Nut cheese as well as cranberry jelly keeps very well in the fridge. You can make them 5-6 days in advance. I use agar agar powder for the both, which sets super quick. You can even made them last minute and they will still set before the guests arrive.

Hokkaido Pumpkin Soup

  • You can do a little preparation in advance. Peel and cut your pumpkin in advance and freeze them until you are ready to make the soup. This creamy pumpkin soup keeps well in the fridge, so you can make it 2-3 days ahead.

Vegan Shepherd's Pie

  • If you want to make them ahead, we recommend to make and store the stew separately from the mashed potatoes. The Shepherd's Pie will be the best if it is served hot. So, layer them in your oven-safe pan or mini ramekins the night before and pop in the oven when you are serving the appetizer. As all parts have already been cooked, you need to keep it in the oven / under the broiler only long enough to get the mashed potatoes some nice light brown colour.

Vegan Custard Tart

  • This keeps well in the fridge and you can bake in in advance 2-3 days. However, we recommend that you add any topping (whipped cream, caramel sauce in particular) right before serving.

Walnut Crescent Cookies

  • They are quick to disappear in my household, so I would say 2-3 days. But if you make a large batch they can last for several weeks. That is why they are perfect as Edible Christmas Gifts. 

Vegan Baileys

  • It keeps well in the fridge for a week, tops 10 days.
