Is Stephen Fry vegan?

Fry tweeted: “It’s #NationalVegetarianWeek and I’ve been in the kitchen trying 3 classic recipes with a veggie twist … Join me and try them in your kitchen. Get the recipes at”

Fry is believed to be vegetarian, revealing in a 2017 tweet: “Since becoming vegetarian I seem to have developed a virtual addiction to kimchi. Who knew such a thing could happen so late in life? Sheesh.”

Later that year, he tweeted that he had found it easy, but that ‘the hard part is trying my best to moving to vegan. Damn you cheese and eggs…”

Oat milk

Earlier this year, Fry revealed that he is a fan of oat milk, when he shared a picture of his latte.

He wrote: “Quite pleased with this one because, while far from perfect, it’s the best I’ve managed so far with oat milk.”

‘Oat milk isn’t milk’

One Twitter user responded saying: “Looks great. However, oat milk isn’t milk.”

Fry replied: “And peanut butter isn’t butter, quince cheese isn’t cheese, cream of coconut isn’t cream…try as dairy farmers might, history and the nature of language development will decide.”
