New York Magazine Introduces Extensive Vegan Encyclopedia For Omnivores


1 Minutes Read

New York Magazine‘s food blog Grub Street has published a comprehensive vegan encyclopedia for omnivores.

The guide, which is titled A to V: The Encyclopedia of Vegan Food, explains plant-based foodie terms, including culinary breakthroughs, cult brands, sandwich fillings, and food tech.

Concocted by Robin Raisfeld and Rob Patronite, the omnivore’s encyclopedia ‘to navigating an increasingly plant-based world’ features terminology such as aquafaba, Impossible Burger, Gary, and Happy Cow.

The guide – which has been trending as number one as the most viewed story on the website – is also available to read in New York Magazine‘s latest issue.


But the writers have also warned of a vegan misconception, highlighting that vegan doesn’t equal health food.

The piece reads: “Many ethical vegans seem content to subsist on highly processed facsimiles of meat, chicken, and fish, sculpted from soy protein or wheat gluten, often deep-fried and accompanied by a pile of inherently vegan fries.”

Explaining ‘aquafaba’, the light-hearted guide says: “It’s hard to say what’s made more of a culinary impact: man’s harnessing of fire or vegans’ discovery that canned-chickpea liquid whips up into a substance so akin to eggs it’s revolutionized everything from meringues to mayo.”
