“Seitan isn’t a meat replacement, it’s a food stuff in its own right. Some of our happiest moments are when we get a meat eater who says, ‘You know what, this stuff is great. I didn’t realize vegetarian meat could be this good.’”
Meet Chris Kim and Rebecca Lopez-Howes, the co-owners and seitan specialists behind Monk’s Meats, a vegetarian butcher shop – with plans to open a storefront – in Brooklyn, New Yorkhttp://foodcurated.com/2013/04/monks-meats-a-vegetarian-butcher-makes-a-case-for-wheat-meat/

I never tried Seitan, or even heard of Seitan before, but would be interested in trying to make a small batch if someone has a good recipe that they have tried. I didn't know wheat flour/or wheat gluten could be used to make a meat-like product. To me, Monk’s Seitan looks good, but I don’t really understand how it is made.
Did any member ever taste any good Seitan, and if they did what did it taste like?
