Today is Liberation from Visiting Vegetarian Relatives Day. We remember the suffering of those who sat patiently while the invading hordes fussed over and rejected endless menu options and plates of fresh, nutritious and tasty food. We honour those who gallantly held their tongues while the occupying forces whined about ‘dead animals’ and expected a city of 7 million gourmands to cater to their perverse, irrational, self-imposed and extensive dietary restrictions. And we recall the sacrifice made by the brightly coloured, excitingly textured and dazzlingly flavoured (plant-based) ingredients that were left abandoned as the occupiers stuck rigidly to the same drab, starchy, processed stodge, meal after meal, occasionally adding variety only with such delights as marshmallows for lunch.
