OK. This disturbing to me, but I am promoting it to show that I am an accommodating Chef (yeah, I said Chef).

Accommodating to whom?  If I had a restaurant I would try to accommodate my customers.  However, that does not mean that I have to make tofu.  I'd refuse.

I get so tired of this crap. "Great Vegetarian" is an oxymoron, and tofu is evil. Not only does soy not provide you with complete protein as the vegetarians claim, it also prevents you from utilizing REAL vitamin B12 by supplying its own fake version your body will accept, but not be able to use. This is really true.

 

Soy also causes a lot of thyroid problems.

 

There is no such thing as a great vegetarian diet unless you are biologically an herbivore, like a deer or a cow. If you are human, you are an omnivore, and should eat like one.

LOL. Sometimes readers read WAY more into a sentence than what is really written. Sometimes readers come into a thread without reading parts before, and don't get all the context of what was said earlier. It's like that kid's game where a whispered idea changes as it goes around a big circle. 

 

Remember what I said earlier? "Tofu is Communist, and it will make you sterile". I believe that made at least one(1) person laugh. Yes KKV, I am very "accommodating" when it comes to producing dishes made from tofu. Unlike with veal and foie gras, I have no problemmo whatsoever with the inhumanity thrust upon the soy bean. 

 

On another note, I made the "onion soup" from my post #17. As it turned out, I(we) loved the soup, it was very tasty. I will next time make a few changes though. Those little cute ramekins are out. I will also add a shot of bourbon to the mix. 

 

One thing that gashes a big separation between animals and human-beings, aside from the opposable thumb, are our abilities to use abstract reason, language, introspection and make seriously complex decisions. After around 200,000 years of domestication, I think good old Homo sapiens has the ability to do just fine on a vegetarian or even vegan diet. You don't need to agree, but you do have to let other people chose for themselves.

I haven't called anyone out. Maybe I just spend a little more time being positive than finding ways to fight.

The only way to really be open minded is to allow closed minded people to be just that.

Please realize that some people just roll this way. I sure as sure know that I do. I embrace these people. I look to make them happy. I want them to come back. Now let me tell you, I'm no relation to Mother Theresa. I'm just greedy for hungry vegetarians, who mostly have deep pockets. And hey, cooking great vegetarian aint'e no rocket surgery. 


 

  Hi Iceman!

 

We all look at things differently, nothing wrong with that.  After looking at the ads I don't find them offensive at all.  In fact, I think people who eat meat should have an understanding that you are taking a life to feed yourself.  Many kids/people just buy a cut of meat from the butcher and never give thought to where it came from.

 

   (To me) Vegetarian food is wonderful!  Not because it doesn't contain meat, I like meat...but because vegetables are a wonderful source of flavors.  I'll take my turn cooking for the guys in the FireHouse and I always cook with fresh vegetables (preferably garden and locally sourced).  I think one of the problems with people refusing to eat vegetables is because they've become accustomed to lowly grocery store vegetables and even worse (yuk!) canned vegetables.  Because, you know, I don't want to eat canned vegetables either...they taste like ---scatch&sniff---!

 

   Back to the ads...

 

  Why do I love one and eat the other?  Because each a cow, chicken and pig taste wonderful!

 

 

   Take care,

  Dan
