I've seen where other book people talk about using rabbit skin glue...as a vegan, you can imagine how I feel about this. Isn't there a cruelty-free alternative available?
Sorry to get political here...

I do hope there is a little book of tea forthcoming. Such a variety of wonderful combinations!

Hi Connie, you would need to search tradtional glues for an animal free alternative. As rabbits are a feral pest in Australia I have no qualms about using rabbit skin glue. In fact I would be more than happy to go all Kevin McCloud and start with my own freshly caught rabbit especially if he was caught nibbling all the bark off my olive trees. But I digress. I am not a vegan but I am a vegetarian plus seafood, not because I disagree with the eating of animals but I do disagree with the current treatment of them.
