Top 10 posts on Not Just Vegetarian…

So, Not Just Vegetarian is one year old!!!  Thank you friends, family, and all readers for supporting this blog.   Here is a round-up of the top 10 posts over the past year:

  • No. 10:  Chilean wine class at Puro Wine  I really enjoyed learning about Chilean wine and eating Chilean appetizers in this class.  I also got to know why wine from the Camenere grape goes so well with spicy (Indian) food

  • No. 5: Progressive food tolerance among Tamilian vegetarians.  I had a hearty laugh when I came across a cartoon (meant to be taken lightly) that attempts to categorize eating habits of a tiny sliver of the Indian population.  You need to be Tamilian to appreciate this.

When I look for a pattern among the top 10 posts, it seems as though readers share my preferences for chocolate, gelatos, wine, spicy food and drinks, as well as vegan and gluten-free food.  The question is should I write more about these?
