Brother and sister team Aubry and Kale Walch have spent the last several years perfecting The Herbivorous Butcher’s deliciously deceiving meat-free meats. Aubry has been a vegetarian for 18 years and has spent over a decade creating meat-free alternatives to all the foods that she grew up with on Guam, a place where cooking was very important and each meal consisted of 2-3 different kinds of meat or seafood, not to mention a wide variety of flavors, spices, and textures, blending traditional cuisine with culinary cultures from across the world. After years of watching Aubry thrive as a strict non-meat eater, Kale Walch followed suit and became vegan. Over the past several years, he has developed a keen sense for the many ingredients and methods that go into making the most flavorful, nutritious and satisfying meat alternatives. Having made the change from omnivore to vegan more recently, he is able to invoke the flavors of his previous “meat palate” to create realistic and tastefully accurate meat-alternatives.

The Minneapolis-based vegan butcher shop, The Herbivorous Butcher, is slated for an appearance on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives this summer. How cool!

Yes! Congrats The Herbivorous Butcher! The third all-vegan esablishment to be featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives! Just found out that Souley Vegan was just one the show! Say what you want about Guy Fieri, but we had a fabulous experience with him and his super fun crew and the show has done wonders for our little cafe. Cannot wait to visit The Herbivorous Butcher one of these days 😃
