I actually think it's easier to be vegetarian than last time we visited. There is now a whole range of Quorn products available (thankfully as the Sanitarium and Fry's products aren't great). I've found BBQ chefs more than happy to accomodate me and they always offer to do my stuff first (which I've brought with me of course) before the meat is done. What is funny is that when I've brought a pack of four burgers hosts always think I'll eat all four because 'there's nothing to them'! I do find myself answering the 'but why are you veggie' question all the time. After ten years in London and four in Scotland where people weren't bothered anymore it seems strange to be going back to explaining it to people who are genuinly interested but also don't seem to have met a veggie before!
