Reader: Kudos to Rachel Kesley, for creative vegetarian cooking.

WaterCourse Foods is crunchy, and creative.
Lori Midson's Chef and Tell interview with Rachel Kesley of Watercourse Foods is already inspiring plenty of meaty comments, including this joke:

Q: What beverage goes best with a vegetarian meal?

A: Flat beer.

But the comment that really captures the spirit of Chef and Tell comes from Diner:

My respect goes out to Rachel. Well spoken, and not dogmatic. Sounds like she has a good outlook on life in general. I'm not vegetarian, but have eaten at WaterCourse a few times with friends, and enjoyed the food. It's tough to do vegetarian/vegan food creatively, without relying on vegetarian ethnic standbys.

Nice Chef and Tell, I've enjoyed reading them over the last few months. Been in Denver two years and Chef and Tell has given me a snapshot of several of the city's best chefs. Look forward to future posts.

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth.

Anyone can break this cycle of violence! Everyone has the power to choose compassion! Please visit these websites to align your core values with life affirming choices: &

"Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But, conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one's conscience tells one that it is right." ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
