What Is This Wizardry?!
A food of ancient origin; seitan, as its known, was used over a millennia ago by Chinese cultures, and spread to the west as wheat became more prevalent. An amazing meat alternative, seitan is essentially the protein of wheat gluten. It’s flour that can be combined with a variety of spices, seasonings, and liquids to recreate the flavors of a multitude of meats without the sacrifice.

Michael first tried vegetarianism in 2010, and found cooking along the way. After traveling the country, working on organic farms, he made the plunge and went vegan in 2013. Over this time, he was a fervent home cook, veganizing childhood dishes and in 2015, he helped found Leguminati, and began experimenting with seitan and meat alternatives. He was also lucky enough to be apart of Market on South at its inception and be surrounded by amazing and talented people. Fast forward two years later, and tons of seitan later, Michael decided to branch out on his own, and provide Orlando the quality wheat meat it deserves.
