Biography
I have always been interested in food but apart from the odd part-time waitressing job have never had the opportunity to work in a restaurant.

Over the years I have progressed from being a meat-eater, to a vegetarian, to now being Vegan for over 12 years. Despite being asked regularly "What on earth do Vegans eat", our meals are tasty, healthy and cruelty free. Therefore as soon as I retired I started a Vegan blog and also do lots of off line promotions.

I don't expect the World to become Vegan or for many to feel the way I do, but I do believe many are looking for more meat-free meals included in their weekly menus whether for health reasons or to prevent global warming or just for a greater variety.

What will they eat ?

I find some restaurants still do not understand the various types of vegetarians therefore are unable to offer suggestions on what that particular vegetarian diner would like to eat. Most, I am pleased to say, go out of their way to provide a tasty meal with the result that the vegetarian concerned visits regularly.

Hey Jackie, thanks for adding me as a friend...no, haven't been to Africa, but I just added like 300 photos from a Nile River Expedition that I helped organize Stateside a few years ago. One day I would like to get to see Victoria Falls, but I'm not too keen on rafting the Zambezi....the rapids are intense Class V, which would be fine, but I don't care for the extra hazard of crocodiles in the river. Go figure!

Hi Jackie, welcome to FohBoh...This is a great resource site and I know you're going to find a lot of value here. Check out the Groups link on the main navigation bar...this is where you can find topic-related discussions that I know you'll be interested in.

I recommend you join the Local Store Marketing (LSM) Group for inexpensive ways to help market your business and increase sales, the Coffee Lovers Group because, just about everyone working in a restaurant or restaurant-related profession drinks coffee, and the Leading Generation Y Group because the young people working in restaurants today are part of Generation Y and they have unique desires, needs, and an outlook on work, and finally the Ambitions Group because we all have ambitions and dreams, and this is the place to articulate them, find other kindred spirits, and receive positive support from a great bunch of people.

If you have any questions about the site or how to navigate, I'll be happy to help.

Cheers!
