I can see where Pene­lope Reid is com­ing from (Let­ters, 2 Novem­ber). Maybe her idea of veg­e­tar­i­ans and ve­gans work­ing on farms could be ex­tended. What if ev­ery com­mit­ted meat-eater were to spend three years work­ing in an abat­toir? I de­liv­ered meat for a butcher in my vil­lage as a teenager and reg­u­larly saw cat­tle and pigs be­ing slaugh­tered. I’ve been veg­e­tar­ian for nearly 50 years now. Or­lando Good­den

• My hus­band and I are not ve­gan, or veg­e­tar­ian, though we eat very lit­tle meat; but a kind prov­i­dence, decades ago, gifted us the best cook­book I have ever used: Gail Duff ’s Veg­e­tar­ian Cook­book. One-pot cook­ing, mostly ve­gan, a few sim­ple in­gre­di­ents in bril­liant com­bi­na­tions. A copy in ev­ery UK house would trans­form the na­tion’s health, not by food preach­i­ness but sheer eat­ing plea­sure. Hilary Cash­man
