Chow Bella

Veggie Boy debuts tomorrow

By Michele Laudig

Megan Irwin's weekly installments of Veggie Girl were an instant hit on Chow Bella when they started earlier this summer -- readers gave lots of feedback, and Megan was enthused about covering vegetarian dining. And alas, just when it seemed she was on a roll, Veggie Girl left us to embark on a whole new phase of her life.

But now we're getting a new blogger with a craving for vegetarian dishes, Benjamin Leatherman. Perhaps you've seen his writing in the music section. Or the Night & Day section. Or the front cover of New Times. Benjamin's a hell of a multitasker (he's also our clubs editor). And as it turns out, he's been on the lookout for meatless dishes, and is eager to write about it.

Hit up Chow Bella tomorrow, and every Tuesday, to see what Veggie Boy's been eating around town.
