Viva! Poland’s victory was reported around the world, including a large piece in the New York Times. It ignored entirely concerns over animal cruelty and concentrated solely on a perceived threat to Jewish culture and Jewishness, implying there was political motivation behind the ban, promoted by “a mix of animal rights activists, leftists and right-wing nationalists.” The World Jewish Congress, it claimed, had raised it with the Pope who ‘specifically expressed concern about the ban.’ This campaign was not about politics or anti Jewishness but about reducing the suffering of animals

I went to Bruges last week and on my first evening wandered around the side streets of this beautiful old city – doing a bit of menu spotting as I went – and got totally lost. It was then I saw a very small restaurant (seats 12 at a time) with an almost vegan menu – plus some fish. It was beautifully appointed – linen tablecloths, sparkling glasses, etc  –  and so that was it for me for dinner. The oldish lady owner served an appetizer of hot spiced aubergine in crumbly pastry. First course was a neat, round quinoa salad filled with minute dice of tangy veg and beside it, grated raw beetroot, fennel and other things I couldn’t recognise with a wonderfully zesty dressing and beside it, warm marinated  beetroot pieces on thyme skewers.
Main course was tiny whole carrots, baby new potatoes and a medley of other vegetables in a white wine sauce with a puff pastry lid.
