I'd just finished reading another depressing job rejection email when I saw I got a facebook comment from my aunt who lives in France. I like hearing from her so I went on to see what it was and got a fantastic surprise- two of her sons (aged 12 and 14) and her partner want to give up meat!!! The boys love animals and my uncle is doing it for health reasons. She wants some recipes, luckily I have lived for 9 months in France as a vegetarian then vegan, and I know what's available.<br><br>
I'm excited <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I know the youngest boy had already expressed interest in why I was vegetarian when I was last there and she said that made him think about what he was eating.<br><br>
So I just wanted to post the news <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> and I'm sure I can think of quite a few recipes as they like spicy foods, pizza and pasta, but if anyone has any great vegetarianised French recipes that would be good to know! I would like to send them easy recipes without too many substitutes that can difficult to get hold of in France.

Way to go! That's awesome. I don't have anything specific to offer, except VegWeb <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Go team!<br><br>
There's some <a href="http://www.ivu.org/recipes/european/french-index.html" target="_blank">French recipes</a> on the IVU website, I haven't looked at them and even if I had I'd have no idea about their authenticity. Might be worth a look though?

That's awesome! My nieces and nephew are very receptive to my veganism, and it wouldn't surprise me if at least one of them follows my path in the next few years judging from our conversations about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
