“A Vegetarian for a Month”

Chef Robert St. John, writing about the difficulties of catering for vegans , says he was a vegetarian for a whole month.  “It wasn’t easy,” he says. “I actually became a carbotarian and lived on bread, cheese, and milk.”

How does a chef, who should know all about these things called fruits and vegetables, eat in such a way and dare to say “I was a vegetarian”?
