IN THE run-up to Christmas I've been doing more public parenting than I've done all year. For someone who doesn't leave the house for weeks on end, this can be rather disorientating.

Food & Drink: Eating Out - Don't mess with my tofu

EATING OUT: Terre a Terre in Brighton has been acclaimed as one of Britain's best veggie restaurants. But is it just trying too hard?

Food & Drink: Bites Veggie Restaurants

Leith's, 92 Kensington Park Road, London W11 (0171-229 4481). Mon dinner, Tue-Fri lunch and dinner, Sat dinner. Although it was Leith's Soho that won the Time Out award for best vegetarian meal earlier this year, look to the original for as much of a treat without meat: it has been indulging vegetarians for more than a decade. Starters such as feta and vegetable spring roll, and mains like leek and hazelnut tart, or artichoke and green olive pithivier are pounds 6.75 and pounds 12.75 at lunchtime. Set price dinner is pounds 23.50 for two courses.
