Update on Boma's Tofu

For anyone who may be interested, I just heard from Chef Trish at Boma regarding that great tofu she used (the one with the surprisingly chickeny texture). It turned out to be Veggie Chick'n Strips made by Gardein-Garden Grown Protein, put out under the name It's All Good.

Their site is: www.gardenprotein.com

The strangest thing is that the local Hannaford just started carrying the It's All Good brand (though not these particular strips). I'll definitely be trying their other products because these strips (aided, I'm sure, by Chef Trish's awesome sauces) were really tasty and very texturally satisfying.

Apparently they are made by the same company (gardein) that makes Morning Star Meal Starters Chik'n strips. The ingredients look very much the same, though I swear these were better than the Morning Star. Maybe it was all the chef.

Either way, if you check them out let me know what you think!

I know it's not really vegan-related (though the topiaries certainly are plant-based...) but since we were in Disney World during the Flower and Garden Festival, I thought I would post some of the better pics of the amazing topiaries stationed all around EPCOT.

(Click pics for bigger versions.)

I hope you enjoy!
