Fake meat fun

Yeah, while I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with it, I do share this guy's interest is seeking out fake meat products that are satisfyingly meat-like:

I’m obsessed with mock meat and I’m not even a vegetarian

And the best products do tend to involve fungi - particularly shiitake mushrooms, which can be made with the firmer "bite" that a lot of fake meat products lack.   (Quorn is too soft, and expensive, in my opinion.)

Psilocybin mushrooms, however, have a disgusting taste, which is fortunately forgotten in an hour or so.

The horror expressed by many people at the idea of a diet without meat is rather odd. In this country, carnivores eat only a limited range of animal flesh, and yet one of the arguments against vegetarian diets is a 'lack of variety'.
