The Vegetarian Detroit Podcast: Episode 2
Quiana “Que” Broden, Chef and Owner of the Kitchen, a place where meat eaters and vegans coexist, in New Center, Detroit talks to Jewell Dziendziel about her vegan dishes. Que is featured on the cover of Hour Detroit Magazine for the 2020 Taste Makers award.
The Kitchen, which opened in July 2019, is set up like an actual kitchen (hence the name), with a long counter being the focal point of the space and Que behind it singing and dancing as she cooks up meals for her guests. You will find a healthy balance of whole foods, vegan versions like the impossible burger, and meat and seafood options. You feel like you’re on the set of a Food Network show. It’s a pretty live experience!
In addition to the concept of the restaurant and Que’s journey, this episode dives into the “Eat to Live” program, meal prep, cooking classes, and the After Work Wine Down. We also talk about vegan cheese and meat substitutes, the good, the bad, and the ugly, gardening, and why there should be more fruit trees grown in Michigan. Que also discloses her favorite vegan spots in the area and her food pet peeve! You definitely, don’t want to miss it. Give it a listen!
