Re: “Durham's Kathy Hester is the queen of vegan slow-cooking. Don't be scared.

This is awesome - thank you for sharing these recipes and more about Kathy. She is known throughout the country. My non-veg aunt in California has bought her cookbooks -- it is nice to have a talented vegan chef with this reach in our midst. ("Vegan Chefs in the Midst.") Also will be trying out the bats ...

Re: “Taste-testing vegan ice cream

First of all, thanks to the Indy for including non-cow milk options as part of the ice cream edition! Very awesome, and great that you have included since there is quite a strong trend towards exploring non-traditional alternatives to milk made from animals. And you're kinda non-traditional.

Just a few comments:

Next time it might be helpful to check in with the vegans for top flavors, though I know everyone has a different palate. But green tea flavor and naked coconut aren't probably the best to choose from.

The "Purely Decadent" versions of the So Delicious brand are the best - including cookie dough and peanut butter zig-zag. The coconut based versions of this brand are great, such as cookies-n-cream.

Was also wondering about the sparseness of the photo with just a few slivers of ice cream ... kinda implying deprivation a wee bit -- instead of something like this (Durham entrepreneurs -- take note!): http://archives.quarrygirl.com/2010/02/03/… .

There is also one very central reason many people have chosen to find delicious dessert alternatives. This is an org I respect a lot: http://www.veganoutreach.org/dairy/

In any case, thanks again as always for including alternative options for this growing base of the population and yr readership.
