I was recently running through an old copy The Irish Times - November 20009.  When I came across a wonderful article by Fionna McCann.  In this article she bemoans the challenges of being a vegetarian - I have never been a vegetarian myself but have always been facinated with the limited options that have been offered to vegetarians in Zimbabwe.

Why No Thai?

Thai food. Why on Earth is there none to be found in Harare? I’m an Asian fusion food lover and quite frankly, I’m getting tired of having to pick between Shangri-La and the takeaways in Avondale, or even settling for sushi at Mekka, when all I really want is a great Thai green curry with some sticky rice and some litchi juice to wash it all down.

Some Like It Hot

Chilli's are one of the most polarizing plants there are. Due to its unique properties you either love it to hate it. I am in the first group, and can not get enough of chills. For me its the hotter the better… Well that statement is not entirely true! My upper threshold of enjoyment piques out at the habanero chilli, which is up there with the worlds hottest. But the science of the chillis has has created some Frankensitens, which quite frankly, scare the heat right out of me!
