Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – The Raw and the Cooked – Food in Glastonbury by Vicki Steward

Last week in her blog sitting special Vicki Steward shared her passion for her home of Glastonbury. This week she shares some of the food you can look forward to if you are visiting this culturally diverse town. Vegans, vegetarians and carnivores all seem to be very well catered for and if you are planning a visit this is an excellent guide.

The Raw and the Cooked – Food in Glastonbury by Vicki Steward

When I was a kid it was enough to be vegetarian, the hardcore became vegan, now in Glastonbury Raw Food is all the rage. For those who endeavour to ascend beyond the carnal altogether, there is Breatharianism.. I became a vegetarian at the age of 16, I’d like to say it was out of some great moral principle, but actually, it was because some boy I fancied was vegan and I thought I might work up to that.

Everyone in Glastonbury seems to have at least one food sensitivity. The advantages of this appear to be, like teenage veganism, that you can bring it up in every social situation. Having a restricted diet is useful too in that it scores double points in the endless game of spiritual one-upmanship. Not that I’m dissing those with a genuine allergy or medical problem, just those with a fashionable one.

My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
