In 2021, eating meat is so passé. Or is it pâté? Regardless, more Americans are turning to plant-based lifestyles, aka veganism, than ever before.
A study published last year found that more than 9.6 million people in the U.S. are vegan, which is a 300% increase from previous years. Not only are the benefits of eating plants substantial, but the faux meat options for leaf-eaters in restaurants, fast food joints, and in grocery stores is increasing and improving.
Are you v-curious? Meet Chris Tucker, a contestant on The Great American Baking Show and founder of Betta with Butta, an allergen-conscious bakery. Hailing from the South where he learned his baking prowess from his great grandmother, Tucker has reimagined southern cooking through a plant-based lens and he’s bringing some soy swagger to metro Detroit when he serves up a Southern Vegan Weekend at frame in Hazel Park.
Various timed seatings available Thursday, Sep. 16-Sunday, Sep. 19 at frame; 23839 John R. Rd., #2, Hazel Park; framehazelpark.com. Tickets are $65 per person, beverages not included in prix fixe price.
