Restaurant critic Grace Dent shares her plant-based secret. We meet the vegan building company, personal trainer, the vegan MP and more.

Plus Isabella Rossellini’s life on a plate, lunch with Jack Monroe and Jay Rayner’s rant about restaurant loos.

April OFM, the vegetarian and vegan issue, out this Sunday.
I admit I’m maybe not best known for my willpower. I try. I resist the early asparagus, the monks beard. I hold back on the sea kale. I turn away from the morels. But there is only so much beetroot I can eat. It was the irresistible organic Spanish asparagus that did for me. Luckily, the Norfolk and Wye Valley stuff is coming on stream.
As though I needed an excuse to drink more gin ... I am a bit excited at the news that one of my favourite drinks companies has started a door-to-door delivery service of rare and special brews. The Sipsmith Sipping Society is sending members two 20cl bottles of interesting bottles every two months. Blood orange martini anyone?
I can’t remember when I last ate in the same restaurant twice in 24 hours but Tomos Parry’s Brat had just too many things I wanted to try. There are echoes of Kitty Fisher of course but Brat is better. Note: the grilled whole turbot is almost essential if you are not eating on your own. First floor, 4 Redchurch St, E1 6JL
I am a bit obsessed with teapots and own more than anyone sensible needs (I am supporting potters is how I sell it to myself). But I am unsure how long I will be able to resist the “Japanese Betty” from Postcard Teas. It is hard to beat a Brown Betty but the Suzuki family may have succeeded. 9 Dering St, Mayfair, London W1S 1AG
