I am very happy that Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is now doing a vegetarian cooking show. I had to stop watching his television specials because he raised his own animals, named them, cared for them — and then killed them and ate them during the course of his River Cottage TV specials. It was too traumatizing for me.
I watched his new vegetarian program last night while still suffering from indigestion from a magnificent dinner of pork crackling eaten the night before. I have promised to eat less meat and more vegetables and to make a real effort in procuring the 16 ingredients that it usually takes to make a very delicious vegetarian meal. Unless it’s macaroni and cheese. That doesn’t take 16 ingredients and it’s delicious every time.
