Why vegans eat fake meat

Vegans eat pulled pork, corn dogs, Reuben sandwiches and crab cakes... just hold the meat. At one vegan restaurant in Toronto, the most popular pizza on the menu is the Pig Destroyer Destroyer, a meatless pizza for meatlovers. But why bother with fake meat?


Our guests are Jen Bundock, owner of Apiecalypse Now! Pizza and Snack Bar in Toronto; and Doug McNish, a classically trained chef, owner of Doug McNish's Public Kitchen in Toronto, and author of several vegan cookbooks including his most recent, Vegan Everyday: 500 Delicious Recipes.
