Latest post of the previous page:

Chicken tikka masala was popular in UK restaurants leading someone to claim it was fast becoming a national dish. I'd say McDonalds, kebabs and pizzas are the UK's national favour today.

Is an extreme-vegetarian a vegan?
Extreme-veg = the people who don't eat roots, onions, potatoes, etc...some Jains in India are like that.

It's a new title I think, I bought my copy of Vegetarian Living in Sainsburys, but I've also seen it on sale in WH Smith and other supermarkets.

I like this mag so much I've just taken out a subscription. Here's the link to subscriptions if anyone is interested http://www.selectps.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=6_9

Thanks, Greenbee - I'll maybe have a look at the magazine the next time I'm in Sainsbury's.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I'm with Nick on this one. Definitely spam-flavoured.

And I'm not buying the magazine anyway. I'm put of by the cover line on the September issue: "Yotam Ottolenghi, the UK's most influential vegetarian chef, shares his passion for sensual food". Yotam Ottolenghi is not vegetarian, nor a chef of exclusively vegetarian food, as you can see from his website, the first page of which includes: "Ottolenghi draws on a wealth of culinary traditions – with a focus on the Mediterranean basin – providing inventive yet honest food, anything from a lemon and mascarpone tart to a grilled mackerel with olive and raisin salsa, made only from the best basic raw ingredients" (my bold). Yes, he has a column in the Guardian called "The New Vegetarian", and he's written a vegetarian cookbook. But he cooks non-vegetarian food too, as you can see from his website. His catering menu includes roasted whole leg of lamb with rosemary, garlic and lemon sauce and spicy beef koftas with cucumber and mint yoghurt. And he has published cookery books that aren't vegetarian. And his restaurant and shops sell non-vegetarian food. So if he's the UK's most influential vegetarian chef, I'm a Seventh Day Adventist.

Anyway, it's things like that that put me off a magazine. Or would put me off if I were in the habit of buying magazines. :) So I won't be buying it, even if Greenbee isn't a spammer.

A review of one of Ottolenghi's recent books says: "And I find that I get an absolute craving for the rack of lamb dish from this book, which is exquisite." I'm not sure whether that is a worse crime than writing for the Guardian but either way definitely won't be buying Vegetarian Living.

From their website http://www.vegetarianliving.co.uk/ it doesn't appear they will be covering many of the animal welfare issues that need addressing. Nevertheless hope it does well.



This is great thank you muchly
