Crossroads Kitchen, a vegan restaurant based in Los Angeles, developed a five-course vegan tasting menu with season six Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio that offers an entirely plant-based spin on classic meat-based dishes.

While the first course of the feast introduced "Mushrooms Pretending to Be Chicken Liver Mousse" with kale juice lavash, other notable items that followed included salads, a chocolate dessert and a vegan-friendly version of osso bucco, which is ordinarily made from veal shanks. As its name suggests, the Smoked Beet Osso Bucco was prepared from the colorful root vegetable and served with a sunflower seed and truffle risotto.

At the same time many affordable plant-based patties, strips and nuggets are emerging in supermarkets for mainstream consumers, there is also a desire for high-end meat alternatives for luxe restaurant dining experiences.
