The Vegan Butcher: The Ultimate Guide to Plant-Based Meat

The ultimate science-meets-magic guide to plant-based meat for vegans who are tired of burgers.

For any vegans shedding a tear over bacon, eggs, or a porterhouse steak, this is your new bible. Whether you want to experiment with simple meat substitutes in everyday meals or make an entire vegan charcuterie board from scratch, this book is here to shake up your perception of plants and reintroduce you to your favorite classics.

Veganism isn't about missing out - it's about getting creative, and with Zacchary's ingenuity, meat's no longer forbidden (and we're not just talking jackfruit). Watermelon? Now it's a ham. Gluten flour? Turkey. Mushrooms - we think you mean steak.

Equal parts science and magic, this cookbook explores the vast world of plant-based meat possibilities. From easy replacements to full-blown kitchen experiments, The Vegan Butcher has recipes for cooks of every level, with substitutes for (almost) any dish you could think of. It's all the comfort of Matty Matheson, but vegan, because let's face it: falafels are great, but sometimes we want an entire turkey, and Zac's here to realize our guilt-free, home-cooked dream.
