Fake burgers have been creating a lot of buzz these days, and why not? If you can make something that satisfies your primordial burger cravings without all the faffing on with cows then that’s a good thing surely.
I’ve been a fan of Quorn chicken burgers for years and my latest favourite meatless sausage is so close to a meat sausage I think even hardened carnivores would raise a cynical eyebrow. Slather both products in mayo, ketchup or BBQ sauce, stick them in a toasted brioche bun and most people wouldn’t bet their rent money on the outcome of a taste off. Obviously Jay Rayner would not be fooled but I’m talking your average gal / guy in the street here.
