I post on the Vegan Freaks' Forum and Yahoo! Scottish Vegans, also as Kris Dove.

3. You have to have tofu for dinner, and it has be an Italian dish. What comes to mind first?

Marinated italian-style tofu from Vegan With A Vengeance.

Loads! I visit most through Planet Freak

5. Besides your own, what is the most recent one you’ve read?
Punk you Japan!

I'd like to eat out of an arty bento box with Peggy The Veggie at Vegan Teen Cuisine.

7. If you had to base your dinners for a week around one of the holy trilogy – tofu, seitan or tempeh, which would it be?

Definitely tofu, so adaptable.

8. If you had to use one in a fight, which would it be?

Well, seitan would be the heaviest...

Chickpea cutlets from Veganomicon, seitan cutlets, served up as burgers, also from Veganomicon, or Bryanna Clark Grogan's "Neatballs"

Vegan Bear's Tiffin.

Oh loads!
-an arty cows face with "if it's got a face I don't eat it" in light brown, ,

-a black vest with a pigs face that says "DON'T MESS WITH THE ANIMALS"
-a black "Meat is murder" from Viva,
-a grey one I bought in Cult clothing with a pig that says "we are friendly animals- don't eat us",
-a black one with the vegan society's logo which says "against animal tasting"
-and several ancient t-shirts I got when i was a teenage vegetarian, which I still a wear as pyjamas!

12. Have you made your pilgrimage to the 'vegan mecca' yet? (Portland, duh)

Nope, one day maybe.

13. What age did you first go vegan? Did it stick?

24, and yes, I'll never go back.

14. What is the worst vegan meal you’ve had? Who cooked it?

Some hotel I went to for my gran's birthday (cant remember the name) that never had anything for my main course, so i ended up eating other people side salads and chips! My aunt had called in advance to say there was a vegan in our party as well!

15. What made you decide to blog?
I started photographing a lot of things I'd made to post to vegan freaks' "food porn" albums, then decided my own blog would be a good place to show all the pics. That and everyone else was doing it! :P

16. What are three of your favorite meals to make?

Pizza with tofu ricotta, tomato rice soup with french baguette, or seitan cutlets

17. What dish would you bring to a vegan Thanksgiving-themed potluck?
I don't celebrate thanksgiving because I'm in the uk, but as far as I know thanksgiving meals are similar to xmas dinners?
When I go to potlucks I usually have to travel, and go by the "will travel well" rule, so maybe VWAV sparkled ginger cookies(I'm sure the author mentioned they were festive in the book?) and my mini-quiches, as they're party food.

18. Where is your favorite vegan meal at a restaurant?

I'm just loving Stereo's (Glasgow) tapenade and artichoke calzones and have ordered them the last couple of times I've been :)

19. What do you think the best chain to dine as a vegan is?

Wagamama's are really good as they've got a list for their waiters explaining what's suitable, or how it can be adjusted, to accomodate different diets, including vegan. I love their spicy tofu and veg dish with rice noodles replacing the veg. They even have sorbets and fresh fruit lollies available for dessert.

20. My kitchen needs a………
really powerful food processor

21. This vegetable is not allowed in my kitchen…..!
I don't have that rule, but Jay has one barring Aubergines(eggplant) from our kitchen!

22. What's for dinner tonight?

I've not decided yet, last night was tofu ricoota and broccoli calzones. Maybe a curry as i have poppadoms and loads of fresh veg?

23.What's a blog you read that has not yet been mentioned?

Skint Vegan

24.Add a question here!

What do you make that people always ask for more of?

(In my case, Jays' been asking for more French bread atm)

I just wanted to post a comment and say Hi. Thanks for reading our blog!

I always read yours too!

I wanna meet you, hopefully I'll make it to Scotland one of these days.

And thanks for the award awhile back, I couldn't think of anyone to give it to that you hadn't. Sorry, I'm lame.

Thanks :) You should visit Glasgow one day, we have no less than 3 totally vegan restuarants to pick from and plenty vegan-friendly places too! Japan doesn't sound the most vegan-friendly of places so it'd make nice change. :)
