i'm afraid militant vegans would probably be offended by the word "serve" ... "offer" is so much more sharing and less hierarchical.

I'd do it if they weren't vegan. I can't be around those kind of people that often.

i don't recall either of these, but I don't doubt their validity. For butter, it is involved, but seemingly not to Ad Hoc levels.

The black pepper tofu definitely called for like a stick of butter smile.gif That seems like something easily substitutable though.

The gobs of buttery crust and heavy cream and cheese in the garlic tart...maybe not so much.

yeah i can recall a handful that were dairy heavy. We don't (or can't) make the dairy heavy ones, so we don't, and yet it still feels like we have the majority of the book available to make. But yeah, some of those tarts are heavy on the creme/butter.

The designation of eggs as dairy always made sense to me, as they are products of animals but not animals themselves. I have not yet checked with Paul Ryan to see if this is acceptable reasoning, and of course I view balut and other late trimester delicacies as meat.

Dairy is that which contains lactose (milk, cheese, breasts, etc).
post #5604 of 7218
Do the food pyramid charts no longer show eggs in the dairy category? Has Dairy been replaced with "animal byproduct" or something?

I believe that you are perpetuating a terminological inexactitude, eggs are not allowable under vegetarian diets. Ovo/lacto-ovo vegetarian diets yes. Also vegan is not just about food, it also includes the use or exploitation of animals. Vegan diet/vegetarian/strict vegetarian mean basically the same thing. So the term "vegan diet" just means vegetarian, if you include non-plant foods then you have a different beast thus lacto-ovo etc.

Personally I'm a meato-ovo-lacto vegetarian.

actually, the sectarian divisions among vegetarians is fairly recent and we can only hope that it leads to violence. but thanks for the lecture.

Depends what you mean by recent, however my main point is that I used the phrase "perpetuating a terminological inexactitude" in a sentence, and if I were of a self horn blowing bent I'd post that in the "things that are making you happy" thread.

you're on warning: there's only room for one pedant in this town.
and by recent, i mean probably when you were in a crib. i flirted with vegetarianism back when we were doing it to try to save the dinosaurs.

I know you're an old fart but I'm not exactly someone who has never listened to a gramophone/phonograph recording, however I think the sectarian divisions started well before I had my first falafel.
