“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!”
