vegans are the devil

The Seasoned Skillet

The Gentry favor the culinary arts students. Like any Elsewhere student in a creative field, their passion is already intoxicating, but sometimes they leave offerings of baked goods. Sometimes they even get desperate or stupid enough to make a bargain.

But the student known as ‘Maillard’ was not here to bargain.

Their world was fire, and salt, and iron, and they carried that with them always. The scent of the wood-fired grill hung heavy on their clothes; their tea-towels scorched, but their sleeves always white and pure and clean. Their hands still stung with salt; coarse and crystallized, they’d scattered it over steaks, and sealed whole Red Snappers beneath its rocky crust. And the cast iron skillet at their hip carried with it the happy memories of a thousand meals or more, every one of them shared with friends.

And one of those friends was currently the plaything of the Fae, following what mortals would call a ‘bad deal’.

All around them, Maillard could feel the glamour, feel those burning eyes, feel the sheer unbridled outrage as it poured down from the thrones of ice and chaise-longues of living wood in turbid torrents, hell-bent on drowning out all thought. How dare you! How dare you bring these things here, into our world! How dare you think you can just walk in here, just stand there as if you’re anything less than nothing! Crawl, you worm! You insect! Bow down to us!

The words twisted themselves again and again, looking for a way in.

This is outrageous! We demand to speak to your manager!

But muscles honed from lifting sacks of potatoes and hauling huge sauce-pans of chicken stock held the heavy frying pan at arm’s length. Maillard had been pissed off before they’d heard The Bad News;they’d had A Busy Night at their professional kitchen internship. Tomorrow morning, they had to get up and laminate their croissant dough, rolling out unsalted butter and pastry into thin, unbroken sheets. There was no time for hesitation. No room for second guesses. Each and every one of those layers had. To. Be. Perfect.

So like hell they were going to stay up all night playing games.

“What will you give us for the girl?” One asked.

The Fae felt no fear. They could be offended, or be amused, but to them these were absolutes, far beyond the limited mortal constraints of 'feeling’. And being timeless, they were as patient as the grave. All they needed was a moment; the moment of confusion at a fork in the road, the moment a mortal’s faith was shaken, the moment when the stars were right and the moon was full. Sooner or later, they would have their way. They would have their - for lack of a better word - fun.

“I will give you my footprints, going back to whence I came.”

Maillard’s voice was unwavering, and their shoulders squared. The eyes they were looking into were like the winter sun, like burning ice, like death itself - but the customers at table six had ordered a round of extra-well-done steaks and sent them back three times because they were too tough. Table eighteen had requested vegan deviled eggs. Table nine had asked if they could take the sour out of the sourdough and the carrots out of the carrot cake. All were outraged. All were 'never coming back to this dump ever again’. Few left a tip.

They’d dealt with worse.

“I will take with me my fire, and my iron, and my salt. And from these I will forge not blades, but bread - the stuff of life - if you let her go.”

Bread, not blades. Keep the knives in the kitchen, not on the streets. Perhaps it was the magic in the air, but their whole reason for pursuing the culinary arts somehow weaved itself into words worthy of any storybook hero - and perhaps this was enough to amuse the Gentry. Perhaps they had merely tired of their plaything. Or perhaps, that momentary flicker amidst the Fair Folk - when the mortal, kissed by fire and blessed by salt, brandished their iron cookware - meant something else.

But they brought back their friend, covered with frost and fresh-fallen snow. And with their cast-iron skillet and their gas-fired oven and their kosher salt and their grandmother’s recipe, they made cornbread. And soup, because there was time, now. The two friends ate together, and the color came back to her hands and her cheeks, and the life came back to her eyes. And they talked about anything but what they’d seen and done, because that was What You Did at Elsewhere U.

Maillard left a slice of cornbread on the windowsill before they set their alarm clock. Not as a kindness, not as a payment, but as a promise; forged from iron, and salt, and fire, and love.

They supposed you could call it complimentary. The Fair Folk did love a compliment.

They tipped better than most mortal customers, too.

I think it’s great that vegan blogs and channels exist to give people resources on how to create simple vegan meals. However, unfortunately these spaces are incredibly white dominated and it can be inaccessible to PoC. One major way this plays out is with white vegans taking traditional ethnic foods and butchering them. For example, I’m Japanese and my dad has owned sushi restaurants my whole life. I’m very familiar with what is traditional and I’m even okay with places that put a modern spin on classic recipes, as long as they understand where these recipes come from. However, when I see white vegans giving their own weird take on these recipes without knowing what flavors traditionally work together I find it frustrating. I’ve seen so many iterations of “vegan sushi” with ingredients that don’t fucking taste good with seaweed, sushi rice, wasabi, etc. Like y'all please stop putting hummus or black beans or whatever the fuck in your rolls. Stop wrapping your rolls in lettuce instead of seaweed and calling it “Japanese” food. Sushi in the west has already been incredibly Americanized with the use of avocado, mayonnaise, and other ingredients. Sometimes these ingredients work really well together and I’m super fine with the evolution of Japanese food in the U.S. because it opens the door for some cool innovations and creativity. I went to a sushi place once with a whole vegan menu that substituted soft shell crab in their spider roll with panko fried oyster mushrooms and it was an incredibly smart and inventive substitute. But dear lord please don’t put ingredients in that don’t fucking taste good together and post it on your blog calling it sushi 💁🏻

Veganism is almost literally a religion. You’ve got your crazies, who think that anyone who isn’t vegan is the devil incarnate; you’ve got your moderates, who are vegan but they’re not going to force their beliefs/practices on you because that’s cruel; and you’ve got your not-actually-vegans who say they’re vegans and are almost exactly like the crazies, but they don’t actually follow all the rules they scream at everyone else to follow.

  • sam winchester, eating a vegan mac and cheese: "sharingan", huh?

With grilling season coming upon us do you have any tips on grilled vegan food?

Honestly, I’ve never grilled non-vegan food but from what I’ve seen on what goes into doing so, grilling vegan food is way easier (and not gross). Here is an article to recipes for grilled vegetables and proteins, here is an article to 10 vegan bbq recipes to satisfy a meaty craving, and here is an article to a vegan bbq menu plus 20 foods to grill. If you’re able to follow non-vegan recipes and replace the non-vegan ingredients with vegan ingredients then that’s always an option. You can easily make burgers on the grill, grilled chicken, and vegetable kebabs. For sides you can make an asparagus and tomato salad, cucumber salad, and pickled onions. Those are only a few options. Posted above in the articles and below are a lot more. Grilling vegan is actually one of my favorite things to do and there are honestly so many different options to have an awesome barbecue or grilling get together. I hope this helps some!
