Do you want to amaze your vegan and vegetarian friends with delicious sausages ready for the grill? This is the right place! This workshop is an introduction to seitan making. It's a hands-on workshop, wash your hands properly and be ready to mix!

Seitan is a meat made from the gluten extracted from flour. THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP FOR ANYONE WITH A GLUTEN ALLERGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All flour contains gluten, some types to a higher percentage than others. The traditional method of making seitan involves washing the flour to remove the starch, and turn the resulting blob of gluten into mock meat. In this introduction workshop we will skip the flour-washing step and start with gluten flour, which is just the resulting gluten in a much more practical form. We will make sausages out of the gluten flour and cooked beans, and everyone will be able to customize their flavor with herbs, spices, fruits, etc. Bring your ideas, think of what flavors you would like to (re)-create, and don't be afraid to experiment!

If you have fun and want to learn the traditional method of flour-washing seitan making we might do a follow-up mini-workshop in the following days.

This workshop is donation-based at your will, no one turned away for lack of funds. If you can afford to donate, please do, most people donate during the workshop between €5-15 per person which allow us to keep the FHB going and offer more and more fun activities!
