About The Vegan Butcher (2nd Edition)

“If you like a kitchen project, this book is definitely for you: there is so much to learn and, as the recipes themselves are of varying ease and complexity, you can start modestly and hone your skills as you go along … it’s impossible to read the actual book without becoming entranced by [Zac’s] use of seasonings and juxtaposition of flavours and textures, those touches that are the very essence of cooking itself.”Nigella Lawson

Eating vegan doesn’t mean missing out on the flavour, texture and diversity of food that meat eaters love. Armed with this book, you’ll discover how to create the perfect plant-based meats – sure to sate the most dedicated carnivore.

From soybeans to seitan, konjaku to mushrooms, there is little that can’t be achieved using plant-based ingredients, and the Vegan Butcher – aka Zacchary Bird – is here to show you how. Learn how to create meaty textures through the power of freezing tofu, transform a bag of flour into chewy seitan that will trick even the most diehard chicken fans or play mad scientist with methylcellulose to make the perfect plant-based burgers.

With step-by-step visual guides and more than 130 killer recipes, The Vegan Butcher will completely change the way you think about vegan food. Join the revolution!
