Heh. How long has it been since I've named one? I think we managed to skip 2006. Maybe we'll return to a regular schedule, but in the meantime, here's an Isa Moskowitz profile in the New York Times that helps dispel some of the cultural cliches about dour, self-righteous, ascetic vegans. Also, Moskowitz drops a bombshell that unfortunately isn't followed up: "[E]ggs are the big lie in baking. All the books say they provide structure, but that's kind of crap." How so? I'm no baker, and I know there are good alternatives to eggs for vegan baking, but in what sense is it a 'lie'? Anybody?
