On today's podcast, I talk to Freya Dinshah the president of the American Vegan Society and editor of American Vegan magazine. Freya grew up in an ovo-lacto-vegetarian family in Epsom Surrey, England. In 1959 her pen pal friend Jay inspired her to become vegan and in 1960 she moved to America where they married. Within a year, the rest of her family had given up dairy and eggs too.
Freya is the author of The Vegan Kitchen, the first cookbook advocating the vegan philosophy to be published in the USA. She has also compiled Vegetarian Cooking for 100, a set of vegan catering cards that has been used by college and other dining services throughout the USA.
