Food is good, and ever changing.
I have been in the meat business since 1975, working in most areas, from labourer in the beef plant through to running a federal abattoir.
Sales and sales training in COP (centre of the plate) for about 13years, past 9 sales for a food brokerage.
Over the years I've had occasion to try a large percentage of new vegan and vegetarian burgers as well as plant based non dairy cheese style products. I have enjoyed many of these products coming to market. some I have felt are not so good. One of the best restaurant meals I had in 2017 was at a vegan restaurant. Last week I tried a new beet and sunflower seed patty from a new vegan manufacturer we will be representing, I have a lot of others items they make which I will need to try over the coming weeks, and will probably prepare with a new vegan cheese like line also new.
I am a Meat Head, I am very particular about which cuts I buy, how I age them and I do the cutting. Enjoyed the heck out a nice braised Lamb Shank Sunday night and a great piece of grilled fresh Cod Saturday night. I have also paid closer attention to my fitness and diet over the years and probably eat less red meat and more seafood.
Fact is the vegetarian & vegan market is part of the future, stay healthy and always make time to relax with a nice cigar.
