Move over, Tofurkey. VegNews Magazine's 2015 Company of the Year offers their first cookbook, dedicated to delicious, satisfying vegan "wheat meat" recipes. Founded in 1997 in Seattle, Washington, Field Roast Grain Meat Co. creates artisan vegan meats, made with real ingredients and traditional food making practices. Chef Tommy McDonald shares fundamental techniques and processes that will enable the reader to make vegan grain meats (sausages, stuffed roasts) at home - for everyday (sandwiches, burgers, meatloaf) to holiday (the popular Celebration Roast). The 100 recipes are flexible: want to make your own meats? Great! Want to use Field Roast products instead? That will work too. Field Roast products (grain meats and Chao non-dairy cheeses) are not soy-based; rather they are made with vital wheat gluten, veggies, and spices - all-natural ingredients for authentic, hearty taste. Field Roast's ever-expanding array of products (roasts, sausages, deli slices, loaves, a frankfurter, a burger, and vegan cheese) can be found in retail outlets and on restaurant menus nationwide.
Field Roast Grain Meat Co. products are sold in over 2,000 retail stores and over 500 restaurants nation-wide, including Whole Foods. It was named VegNews Magazine's 2015 Company of the Year.
