[Philadelphia Daily News]
YOU KNOW veganism has arrived when even newspaper comic-strip
characters are taking the plunge. Last week in the Philly-set "Jump
Start," Sunny, the precocious family daughter, proclaimed her intent
to veganize, citing her aunt Charlene as already vegan.
But it’s also no surprise that both characters are female: To many
people, vegan equals "girly," a notion borne out by a recent marketing
study that found both men and women often ascribe manliness to meat
and daintiness to tofu. It’s an age-old prejudice Carol Adams so
deftly covered in The Sexual Politics of Meat more than 20 years ago.
But a new cookbook from John Schlimm, Grilling Vegan Style, throws
stereotypes into the flames, fusing that icon of he-man tech, the
outdoor grill, with meat-free foods — all slathered with Schlimm’s
signature saucy style.
