It looks wonderful but Guiness isn't vegetarian friendly. "The black stuff is clarified with isinglass - a form of gelatine made from the air bladders of fish. It's only a minute amount but technically it's still a fishy pint." via http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/tm_method=full&objectid=19141872&siteid=115875-name_page.html

Just ate some, it was amazing! I used the Quorn meatballs because I couldn't find the other meat peices. But it was so good!

I'm sad that Canada doesn't have Quorn, cause that looks delish.
If you freeze tofu and then rethaw, it gets a rubbery "meat-like" texture...unfortunately, it doesn't contribute any flavour.

I haven't seen beef Quorn in our stores, but we have these soy beef skewers by Yves (www.yvesveggie.com) that are good. I've used them to make a "beefy" mushroom stroganoff that was quite tasty.

Sorry Grace, T didn't get back with the Quorn beef until about 10pm! I think you should just try it anyway.
