A meaty is­sue close to our hearts

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

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
