I assumed that a knowing question about where chicken or lamb comes from would be first, as they don't have a secret identity in the way beef/steak (cow), venison (deer), and pork/ham/bacon (pig) do. Chicken is chicken, and lamb is a baby sheep (awww).

Despite saving my wardrobe, there is one notable downside: veganism has apparently ruined my ability to think. I have had to accept that despite my age and experience, my friends and family think I can no longer read or speak English when it comes to ordering food.

It's been sunny one day here in Suffolk and stormy the next but I don't care - it's June and it's barbecue season. Much as I love sticky barbecued ribs and spatchcocked chickens, a barbecue doesn't have to be meat-based.

The other day I made this stir-fry on the wing, as it were, to go with a spiced duck dish and it was so good I thought it was worth sharing. The grassy taste of the asparagus works well with the sweetness of the peas and onions and the chilli gives zing to the thing.

I've decided to do my best to "eat kind". Like sexuality believe there is no black and white and that labels aren't really helpful any more. Fluidity is. So I'm dispensing with "vegan"/ "vegetarian"/ "pescetarian" etc. If I want to eat some cheese or yoghurt I will.
