the online magazine about gourmet and specialty food.


A couple of months ago, we received an invitation to two industry events on the same evening.

One was for the Lightlife brand of vegan “meat” products. The other was to the opening of celebrity chef Todd English’s new restaurant.

We made plans to stop by and taste Lightlife, a product line we’d never tried, and then head to Todd English’s restaurant. Here’s how the evening turned out:

We liked the Lightlife foods so much, we stayed the entire evening, happily tasting everything. We never made it to the restaurant. Could there be a better endorsement of how good the Lightlife “vegan meat” products are?

We are neither vegetarian nor vegan. We eat everything that’s delicious, and nothing that isn’t.

Eating more vegan foods (products without any animal-based ingredients) supports our personal commitment to eating more sustainably. As much a we love meat, cheese and dairy foods, producing them takes a big toll on the planet.

is enhanced with “bacon.” Both meats are
made from tempeh, a soy-based protein,
and are delicious. Photo courtesy Lightlife Foods.


The line is certified vegan and kosher by OK. Read the full review. It also explains the differences between tempeh, tofu and seitan.
