Tony Weston established Taigh Na Mara Vegetarian Guest
house near Ullapool, Lochbroom, Highlands, Scotland
where he won a string of awards including Vegetarian Hotel of the Year (Vegetarian Society),
and Vegan Guest House of the year (The Vegan Society). His notorious vegan cookbook Rainbows and Wellies
changed the face of Vegan cuisine forever and he went on to advise other businesses through the
Highlands of Scotland Tourist Board and the Natural Cooking of Scotland programme.
He demonstrated healthy cooking as a guest of Catering Scotland magazine at Scothot Glasgow alongside
a younger, and slightly slimmer Anthony Worral Thompson
Following a stint on local radio as the drive time presenter he joined The Vegetarian Society where
he met and subsequently married Yvonne Bishop from Cranks,
the Vegetarian Restaurant chain, and became Tony Bishop-Weston (it's a Dutch thing)
Tony collaborated with his new wife, an accomplished London nutritionist to produce Vegan,
an optimally healthier Vegan cookbook from Hamlyn.
A regular contributor to The Vegan magazine over the years he also writes for other magazines and websites
and now appears on veggievision. He has been on various radio stations in the south east in recent years
including the BBC World Service. His recipes appear on the BBC Food website.
Apart from judging at Salon Culinaire at and participating in discussions with the FSA, FDF, and WD&HF,
Tony also helped with an initiative to raise awareness amongst chefs about healthier options,
working alongside Hotel and Caterer magazine, 3663 and London restaurants such as Leon.
He also works on a number of new product development projects with an emphasis
on healthy functional foods that reach an exacting standard of healthy and delicious.
Tony's new cookbook and healthy diet DVD is due out 2008
