3D meatless lamb is coming to steak menus, more vegan foods

It seems like every week in the vegan food world is more exciting than the last and this week is no exception. Gastronomy has become much more vegan with Chef Marco Pierre White, the first Briton to achieve three Michelin stars, adding whole vegan lamb and beef to his steakhouse menus across the UK. On the other end of the food spectrum, former Dunkin ‘CEO David Hoffmann is excited about his investment in Hooray Foods, a vegan bacon brand that he hopes will hit fast food chains soon. And to top the week off on the right foot, Cardi B’s new Dairy Free Whipped Cream is here and as drizzled as it gets, along with other exciting sweet treats.

1Chef “Bad Boy” Marco Pierre White is good with vegan lamb

Chef Marco Pierre White has many accolades: he was the first British chef to achieve three Michelin stars and also the youngest to do so. Today, the ‘bad boy’ British chef is breaking new ground by adding whole cuts of vegan lamb and beef made by Redefine Meats to his eponymous steakhouses across the UK.

White has teamed up with the Israeli startup to showcase their innovative ‘new meat,’ which Redefine makes by mapping 70 sensory parameters to mimic the taste, texture and juiciness of an entire cut of animal meat. Technical jargon aside, the acclaimed chef is so impressed with the new vegan meat that he says it’s “the smartest thing I’ve seen in the kitchen in 45 years.”

2 Bring home the vegan bacon

Vegan bacon brand Hooray Foods just raised $ 2.7 million in new funding with the help of David Hoffmann, who has spent much of his career as a senior fast food restaurant, most recently as as CEO of Dunkin ‘. After helping the chain modernize its menu with plant-based options such as the Beyond Sausage Breakfast Sandwich and oh-so-aughts avocado toast, Hoffmann left his post at Dunkin ‘in September 2021 to pursue greener pastures.

“After witnessing the national appeal of meat substitutes in my previous roles at leading fast food brands, I have no doubts that Hooray’s plant-based bacon will become a staple on the menus of thousands of restaurants. quick service and at the table. establishments, ”Hoffmann said in a statement.


Since launching last year, Hooray has already sold 2 million slices of vegan bacon in the United States. With new funding in place, Hurray founder Sri Arthram is literally bringing the bacon home by expanding the distribution of the year-old startup to retailers in his home country, Canada.

3 Cardi B do dairy free whipped cream shots, shots, shots

Once again, Cardi B has proven herself to be the royalty of the party with the launch of Whipshots, a revolutionary new product that combines whipped cream and vodka. Each serving contains a full dose of 10% BAC vodka punch, which Cardi promises will have many good times this year.


Squirted on a cocktail or taken inside the bedroom (Cardi’s suggestion, not ours), Whipshots seems like a good time, albeit messy. The icing on the cake ? Whipshots are completely dairy free which means they are both shelf stable and milder on cows.

4 Gum and coconut water, but turn it into candy and desserts

If alcohol-free treats are more your bag, new vegan desserts are coming hot and from brands you might not expect. We all know the Simply brand for its natural gum, but the simple ingredients company has just launched bites of candy bars for the sweet tooth. They’re made from just four ingredients (unsweetened dark chocolate, dates, roasted peanuts, and sea salt) and are currently coming to the company’s website and Amazon.


Harmless Harvest is a lifesaver on a hot day with their organic coconut water, but this week the company broke into desserts with a creamy panna cotta. Available in mango and mixed berry flavors, panna cotta (in Italian for “cooked cream”) is made from Nam Hom coconut and fruit coulis for the perfect sweet and tangy dessert. Harmless Harvest has also launched a silky dark chocolate and coconut pudding to provide even more choices for dessert lovers. The new desserts from Harmless Harvest can be found at Whole Foods Markets stores in parts of the Southwest, South Pacific, and Rocky Mountains.

Halfway through pie season, we’re looking for something cold to break up the baking. Luckily, vegan ice cream brand Wonderland’s Doozy Pots just made its national debut at 371 Sprouts stores. This ice cream is made from a unique base of hemp and oats that offers an old-fashioned Italian ice texture with a hint of sweetness. This ice cream comes in four flavors: Chocolate Mint Chip, Chocolate Raspberry Swirl, Banana Cinnamon Date Swirl, and Smooth Coffee. Not fed up with the pie yet? We will not judge if you have a trendy Doozy Pots ball.
