We've channeled all those years of taking pretty pictures of vegan food and (finally) moved to the next logical step -- video.

(Long time PPKers are now chuckling because we've been talking about doing this since 2007.)




Yes, that's Liz making the seitan, and that's me narrating and doing the music. No, it's not as funny as Vegan Black Metal Chef. ;)

You can also watch it on the blog in HD

Also, we finally broke down and got on FB, where all the cool kids are/were...

Whoa, awesome, I always wondered how you got that thin cutlet style. If one doesn't have a pressure cooker can they simmer it like other recipes? Or does that mess with it?

you can probably do it -- we've never done that way, so your mileage may vary. ;)

As if the wah-wah guitar and the jazz flute didn't give it away -- to paraphrase Homer Simpson: "mmm... Makin' Seitan on the beach" ;)

Great video! Is it possible to do this with vital wheat gluten, or would the texture be off?

no, this method only works with bread flour -- strictly old-school.

Me too ;)

It took a while to put it all together -- the actual shooting only took about 2 hours from start to finish -- but I'm slow deliberate when it comes to the different elements (editing, timing, writing, narrating, music, etc). It took about four passes to get it under 5min (our goal going in). The end result was worth it, though.

Oh yes, there will be more -- the learning curve for the next one won't be as steep.

This is great, really!! I'm excited. This must be what it was like for all their subscribers when Playboy went from print only to movies.

This video is what I needed to motivate me to finally try it the old school way instead of with VWG! Thanks!

everyone should try it the old school way at least once -- and then go back to using VWG ;)
