Re: Vegetarian Living

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.

Re: A challenge to environmental arguments against meat-eating

When I joined this forum recently I was asked what I thought of it, at the time I said it was too early to say. Having read this and many similar topics I'm left baffled as to the purpose of this forum. Although claiming to be freethought the attitudes expressed here seem deeply rooted in traditiona...

Re: Vegetarian Living

Nirvanam, I'd have to agree with with Fia that vegetarian meals are an afterthought when eating out in most UK restaurants and pubs. Luckily there are plenty of Italian, India and Chinese restaurants that usually have a wide choice of vegetarian meals. Chicken tikka masala was popular in UK restaura...

Re: What do humanists eat?

A very interesting article, but I'm puzzled why Peter Singer is always quoted in these articles and not other writers such as Tom Regan whose writings has always impressed me. Singer is a very thought provoking writer, but just one of several 'animal rights' philosophers. I wonder if its because Sin...

Re: Vegetarian Living

Hi Nick, To be honest I've really only read the Humanist Vegetarian Group section and a few of the links from it so far. I thought the Nigel Sinnott essay was excellent. Obviously the HVG forum needs more activity which is one of the reasons I've joined. Sorry which author is "profoundly unhappy" ab...

Re: Vegetarian Living

Hi Alan and thank you. I don't know if you remember the old Vegetarian Society magazine but it was far more than just a recipe magazine. It featured new products, interviews, historical information, the horrors of the meat industry and reminded readers why ethical vegetarianism is essential not only...

Re: Vegetarian Living

Very good news. The Vegetarian Society used to have an excellent magazine which unfortunately they stopped selling in shops many years ago if I remember correctly. From their website http://www.vegetarianliving.co.uk/ it doesn't appear they will be covering many of the animal welfare issues that nee...
