  1. This is also something I have experimented with more than anything since becoming vegan! I have finally nailed it, using my own Seitan recipe (poached), rice paper ‘skin’ and delish breading (I use ‘buttermilk’ and pickle brine) – then definitely fried, not baked…. And after at least 20-30 different experiments/recipes, I think I am finally there texture/flavour wise! I have had such bad experiences with Jackfruit that I have finally given up with it…. Thank you so much, as ever, for all of your experiments too, as I think I have tried all of your recipes, and you were paramount in me sticking to a vegan lifestyle, as your food is so exciting and delicious…. Also, little tip, once adding your ‘acid’ to your milk for your buttermilk, it will thicken more quickly in the fridge!

  2. FYI for your cameraman. The original Kentucky Fried Chicken (aka KFC) recipe has always been 11 different herbs and spices. It's something I recall fondly as a kid. My parents would order a barrel of the stuff on the occasional Sunday for dinner. They used to drill the fact of the 11 different herbs and spices recipe into our heads with the old-school TV commercials back then. Colonel Sanders and his boys made it finger lickin' good too. Nowadays, as a dedicated vegan, like yourself, I do love mushrooms a lot. I will definitely try the mushroom version, by popular demand. I might add some dried mustard powder to make it 11 ;P

  3. Lovely results, I knew the mushrooms were gonna win out and the Seitan would be runner up. But I have to say I can't understand why Tofu was in the list. Yes it's a lot of protein but it doesn't have the right texture for a chicken replacement. True, I've never had 'extra firm tofu', but I have had regular tofu and I imagine it would be like trying to eat a breaded flan/custard rather then 'chicken'.
