Rewriting Food Memories: Nowadays x Aunts et Uncles reimagine chicken with the 'So Simple Chicken Sandwhich'

Michael and Nicole Nicholas
, Aunts et Uncles
Taste can reignite so many memories; memories we grow up with, memories that represent a specific person in our family, our heritage, or that can even transport us to a place in time. For many, the taste of 'chicken' can bring up that feeling of nostalgia. That's why Nicole and Michael from Aunts et Uncles, an award-winning vegan cafe in Brooklyn, knew they wanted to create a chicken sandwich for their restaurant menu, to tie in those flavor memories. That's when Nowadays met Aunts et Uncles. Nowadays plant-based chicken has reinvented the same crisp and juicy chicken flavor that is loved without the junk. Made with just a handful of simple, animal-free ingredients that are better for you, your family and the planet, they make it easy to create crave-worthy dishes. On the Culinary Theater, Nicole and Michael will share how they pair Nowadays crispy, plant-based chicken with hot maple syrup, and Caribbean flavors in their 'So Simple Chicken Sandwhich' at their Brooklyn Restaurant. This is a dish that brings together many of their own memories and will hopefully inspire a few new ones for you.
