Jane Lyons is the writer behind Cooklyn Veg. She lives in Brooklyn, NY but is originally from London, England and has been a vegetarian for nearly 30 years. Though life in London and New York is similar in many ways, the one thing that always reminds her she’s in a foreign land is food. The sweetness of American bread, the blandness of the cheese, and the chocolate – don’t get her started on the chocolate. On the flipside, there are many culinary treats that make her love living in the USA, For instance: the amazing array of fruits that a proper hot summer can yield, pecan pie at Thanksgiving and actual authentic Mexican food.
