Evan George is a producer at KCRW and one half of the vegetarian blogging and cookbook author duo Hot Knives. He invited a group of discerning tasters to his house recently to test out a fake turkey. The group included Good Food’s Evan Kleiman, Lesley Barger Suter of Los Angeles Magazine and butcher duo Amelia Posada and Erika Nakamura (aka Lindy & Grundy).
