Seitan Bourguignon

"It's a yummy red wine and seitan stew best served over mashed potatoes... Adapted from Ricardo vol 2 no 2. Pretty fancy. Seems like there is a lot of steps, but once you do the prep work, it goes like a charm."

I am a young aspiring chef from Montreal. I'm a student cook and I work as a barista (fun times!!!) and I have seriously busy days that lasts forever, so now i love quick fix recipes that takes no time to whip up at 11 pm when i get home. Well i was vegan, now I am back to an lacto-ovo diet for the sake of my class. I have to taste meat at school, and I'm ok with that. But at home, only farmer eggs, happy cow milk that comes from small farms.... and yummy honey from my hometown, Percé, Quebec.
