Fake Turkey

Hosted by

Evan George is half of the vegetarian cooking duo Hot Knives who published the cult cookbook Salad Daze. He invited KCRW's Evan Kleiman, Lesley Barger Suter of Los Angeles magazine and Amelia Posada and Erica Nakamura (aka Lindy and Grundy) to a dinner party where a fake turkey was at the center of the meal. The goal was to make the so-called "soy ball" as palatable as possible.

The consensus was that the Shitake mushroom gravy was the star of the show. See a recipe for Hot Knivez's vegan gravy on the Good Food blog.
