Meet Brian. Brian is a sound engineer. Brian likes Death Metal. Brian is Vegan. Brian is the Vegan Black Metal Chef - musician, YouTube cooking sensation and author.
Brian Manowitz has done more for the street cred of veganism since Ellen came out (to veganism) and Blowfish boots and shoes forever banished the specter of pleather.
He took time out to answer some quick-fire questions for me in celebration of the release of his new cookbook, The Seitanic Spellbook. But first, let's watch him at work in the first ever episode of his cookery show from 2011.
Favourite bit of outboard gear?
Both my axe FX and Kemper.
Does the death growl hurt?
Only the first time.
No such thing. I guess Dimmu Borgir is a huge influence.
Best binding agent when not using egg?
EnerG brand egg replacer.
Vantastic in France. Enjoy Life in the States.
No such thing. That means most of what you eat sucks.
Favourite immersive creative pursuit?
Cats, dogs, both?
What’s up next?
Just moved to L.A. Gonna set up a set here. Book tour, get my music project up and running.
