A meaty issue close to our hearts
I ALWAYS read Barbara’s column (Bm@il) and as usual this week you have echoed our frustration over another everyday matter that just gets ignored by the majority.
I think you should have named the restaurant for us to avoid it!
My husband refused meat as a child and I haven’t eaten meat nor fish for about thirty five years. We used to think the French were hilarious offering us gravy as it didn’t have any meat (as such) in it. (A bit like the original Linda Macartney veggie sausages which contained meat extract.....).
We spent a couple of weeks holiday in France having mushroom crepes or omelette as there was nothing else! Always do self catering now.
At home, we usually stick to Indian restaurants as their understanding of vegetarianism is genuine and Italian food offers choice too.
You’d think these businesses would recognise they can make a better profit from tasty, attractive vegetarian food.
Anyway, thanks for drawing attention to another issue close to our hearts! RITA STAPLETON Address supplied
