Cutlet creates feel-good veal, porkless chop and other nostalgic foods for the modern world
Portland, Ore. – August 29, 2002.
Pining for pork? Lost your feel for veal? Too chicken to eat poultry? Now meatless eating doesn’t have to mean giving up on the flavors of favorite comfort foods like chicken fried steak, veal parmesan, and breaded pork cutlets. Gardenburger’s new soy-based Herb Crusted Cutlet offers a versatile, meatless makeover for recipes that call for breaded pork, veal and chicken preparations. Now you can have your cutlet and eat it too.
Comfort--and Convenience--in a Cutlet Coated in a savory bread crumb crust, Gardenburger’s new Herb Crusted Cutlet* is high in protein, full of flavor, easy to prepare and highly versatile. Offering convenience and comfort for today’s modern tastes, a ten-ounce box of four ready-to-heat and eat, frozen Herb Crusted Cutlets retails for $3.50. Cutlets will be available in stores nationwide by month-end.
Give up the Meat, Not the Taste
“Increasingly, contemporary cooks are looking for alternatives to meat, whether for health, safety or ethical reasons. At Gardenburger it’s our unending ambition to be in sync with modern tastes and ideals,” said Wendy Preiser, vice president of marketing for Gardenburger. “The Herb Crusted Cutlet is a taste-good, feel-good meatless alternative for diners who want to give up the meat, without giving up on taste.”
