The Story

 

 

In 2005, Regal Vegan’s founder, Ella Nemcova left a career in copywriting to pursue the dream of travel. She journeyed from Milan to Shanghai, with a grateful enthusiasm and hungry belly. A year later she came back well fed and happier than she’d ever been. She also came back with a new found mission: to share the experience of traveling to far-flung locales through food. The only twist, she decided, was that they would have to be ridiculously good for you. Two years later, Ella was making decadent 3-course, internationally-themed dinners for patrons all over NYC.

 

It was through experimenting with meat-free, dairy-free and gluten-free diets that Ella discovered the incredible secrets many vegans had known all along: the fountainhead and majesty of good health lay in the nutrients provided by the plant kingdom. She parlayed her world trip into recipes that met the parameters of a vegan, gluten-free diet. And they tasted like guilty pleasures.

 

Demand for repeats of some of Regal Vegan’s creative recipes led to the 2009 launch of the infamous Faux Gras™ (Pronounced, Foh-Grah.) Inspired by the meals of the Russian aristocracy, Faux Gras™ was designed to satisfy the same craving some have for patés. Of course, this paté was more nutritious and a far cry from the cruelty of its namesake, Foie Gras. The success of Faux Gras led Ella to discontinue meal delivery to focus on expanding the product’s reach. In 2012 the company launched Basilicotta™, a creamy basil cashew spread evocative of a pesto-infused Ricotta inspired by extended stays in Tuscany. Both Faux Gras™ and Basilicotta™ can be found in specialty and health food stores throughout the NY area and in select stores around the country.

The Humane Foie Gras

Alternative

 


Faux Gras™ is a toasted walnut lentil paté that’s not just good for you, but good for everyone.  The Regal Vegan’s signature vegan walnut paté is a humane alternative to foie gras.  It is delicious on crackers, vegetables, baguettes, and or toast.  This vegetarian foie gras is made from high-quality California walnuts,  flavorful lentils, and onions slowly caramelized for a lentil walnut paté that is greater than the sum of its parts.

 

Faux Gras™ is great in hors d’oeuvres for  parties, on a sandwich for lunch, or as a vegan snack. Enjoy this vegan foie gras on a warm baguette topped with sliced onion, capers or fresh arugula.

What People Say:

“I’m so much more content to sit at home (with my Regal Vegan tub of Faux Gras and some crackers) and eat my way into a blissful food coma in the dark confines of my $2000-a-month apartment so that no one will see how much happiness it secretly brings.” – Alex Kalmonofsky

BASILICOTTA™

 Vegan Cashew Cheese Spread

 

 

 

cashew cheese sauce

Basilicotta™ is a rich, delicious cashew cheese dip made with fresh basil and raw cashews creating an incredible dairy-free, vegan cashew cheese spread experience. It is soft and spreadable, making it a fantastic sauce, dip, sauce, sandwich spread or pizza topping. Try it balled and rolled in bread crumbs then baked or lightly fried for an amazing take on fried goat cheese or just pair it with a slice of fresh, ripe tomato. We also love it mixed with pasta and some pasta cooking water for an incredible sauce.
