    I have your cookery book somewhere, not sure where, and used to make and donate the chocolate squares in the late 1990s to Southampton’s twice-yearly Animal Welfare Charities Bazaar (think it was called Animal Welfare Market at the time). Very nice, not sure why I stopped making them for it. Maybe because people preferred cakes.

    • Thank you John. Last year the Guardian did an article on Vegan’s and mentioned my book saying that I was before my time! It did jolt the Vegan Society into printing real cookery books not just leaflets. I believe Gourmet Vegan can still be found on Amazon but I have put most of the recipes into my blog. You obviously enjoy cooking. I hope that I can stimulate you to follow my blog. I only get round to putting a couple of recipes on a month. Enjoy.
