Wally Fry was not born a vegetarian. In fact, he was an avid meat eater, believing animal protein was essential for good health. His wife, Debbie and daughter, Tammy were born vegetarians. When Debbie and Tammy continually refused to eat meat, Wally started questioning his own need for meat. Wally owned a construction company and was commissioned to build mass producing chicken farms - this was his turning point and he too became a vegetarian.
"You are only limited by the limitations that you have in your own head" stated Wally, "we have to make a change and be kind to animals."
Wally did stress that becoming a vegetarian is not easy but ensured all those who came to the motivating vegetarian feast presentation at Harvey's Restaurant in Umhlanga last Wednesday that making vegetarian food can be fun and we can bring out the creative genius out of us.
Two chefs, Andrew Draper from Harvey's Restaurant and Labourdonnais Mauritius executive chef, Nizam Peeroo presented sensational food preparations using Fry's selected products. Andrew created a yummy Moroccan burger using the vegetarian chicken patty, which he dressed in a creamy Harissa sauce, while chef Nizam Peeroo deconstructed a scrumptious curry.
Wally delivered a compassionate speech about the plight of the planet and how becoming a vegetarian or vegan is the way forward to saving our planet.
