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 ?

Posted on March 27, 2008 at 1:50am 10 Comments

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!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
