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.
again i find that you can cook lots of vegetable dishes in their own right and not trying to look for a meat substitute. As I said vegetable curry or say stuffed marrow/peppers, ratatouille... well google will give you a near endless list. IMHO they tend to be a lot better then the vegetarian dishes that pretend to be meat
