Intro to Seitan Class
This class has been long anticipated by many and I’m very glad to finally be able to offer it to the public! Seitan is one of those odd dishes that represents a rite of passage for those on a vegan diet. Once you’ve got comfortable with tofu and tempeh, it is likely that your next culinary adventure will involve the mysterious SEITAN.
What is seitan? Seitan is the product of combining Vital Wheat Gluten (a glutinous flour) with water and seasonings and cooking it to produce a savoury, chewy, protein packed food item. Seitan has a pleasant and satiating “meaty” texture. Hence it’s nickname: Wheat Meat.
Seitan can be made to resemble steaks, deli meats, turkey, chicken wings, you name it! It’s a versatile meat mimicking product and it can all be made with just 3 ingredients if you wish. It’s easy to prepare (once you know some basic fundamentals) and can quickly become a weekly staple in your routine.
In this class you will learn the fundamentals of making seitan and be able to taste different seitan-based dishes so that you leave feeling confident and excited to implement these tasty and versatile recipes in your own home!
