Closed to the meat.

So, in an effort to do something about my cholesterol I'm thinking about how to reduce my meat, dairy and egg intake as much as I can. To this end:

Dear Lazyweb,

Where is a good place for a life-long carnivore to find a gentle introduction to meat-free/vegan cooking?



Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be much appreciated.
Most of these things can be accompanied by good bread. Perhaps your swinging by a bakery on the way home could encourage better attrition of the frozen leftovers? :)
This would require me to get around to attaching the basket to my bicycle so that I can fulfill my fantasy of West End = the golden if fictitious days of Provence.
Hey, you could buy it from a bakery called Provence, you can sell it! :)

I'd say we totally need to make the basket happen, even if paniers would be better. :P
