Heavy Table food editor James Norton joins the Current's Morning Show to talk about the local food scene.

Today on The Morning Show's Eating and Drinking, James Norton chatted with Jade and Sean McPherson about meatless meats from a new vegan butcher shop called the Herbivorous Butcher.

"I love meat. I'm a meat dude," Sean says. "And I also like non-meat meat and I think the Herbivorous Butcher which is this new shop up in Northeast is doing some really cool stuff."

Listen to the complete interview above to hear about delicious non-meat meat like Eisenhower steaks, pastrami discs and Korean short rib.

And check out Jame's Heavy Table post about tasting the goods from the Herbivorous Butcher.

James Norton edits the Upper Midwestern food journal, Heavy Table. He's also the co-author of a book on Wisconsin's master cheesemakers and editor of The Secret Atlas of North Coast Food.
