Monkeys and lush food: living the vegan dream!

Family holidays to the West Country have always revolved around food and, because of my unabated squeals for animals, some kind of sanctuary or wildlife trip.

Getting cheesy at Zizzi

For yet another restaurant, the penny drops; providing cruelty free dishes is a good business decision.

Simple cockle warming stew (no cockles harmed)
