A chef prepares vegan dishes at a local restaurant. — VNS Photo Xuân Đạt Phước Bửu Researchers and chefs in the central province of Thừa Thiên-Huế believe vegan cuisine could help local authorities boost tourism. According to researcher Nguyễn Xuân Hoa, residents of the province have had a vegan diet for centuries, after Buddhism rooted and flourished in the locality. Today, the presence of nearly 500 Buddhist pagodas, mainly in Mahayana Buddhism, has kept the tradition going. Hoa said residents of old Huế were the pioneers of the land. They wished for peace and believed a vegan diet could help them achieve it. “Huế has numerous vegan dishes thanks to this tradition.

Our resident bruin expert answers all your questions in our 'Ask A Bear' column. Author: BEAR Publish date: Apr 9, 2019 Q: Do you actually like to eat honey, or is that just a myth? —Beekeeper Ben Let's get one thing straight, Ben: I like to eat everything.
