"The thing about becoming vegetarian is that some of the things that I saw as traditional male roles not wanting to get too sexist or genderist here such as barbecuing, and slicing the roast, went," Paul told to media. He added: "I wanted something to carve at Christmas!"
To give her husband something to do, Linda, who died of breast cancer in 1998, invented 'a macaroni cheese that she shaped and left to set.'
Now, the father-daughter duo has a vegetarian roast made from mushrooms straight from the vegetarian range of foods Linda launched in 1991. Stella said she and her father try to keep Linda's "legacy alive" each Christmas.
"She was so ahead of her time. The cool thing about her is that she would challenge someone about eating meat, but she had this very charming way of doing it, so it never became an argument," Paul said.
