Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
Excellent if you don't want Vegetarian recipes that use "fake meat"
I am a vegetarian because I don't like meat - never have, never will. Recipes that simulate meat based recipes are completely unappealing to me. I love this book because the recipes are "real". I read a lot of the negative reviews that complained that it's not all about vegetables and *gasp* includes grains! UM - what the heck do you think real vegetarians eat? Surely it's not just veggie dogs, ...
The Seasons on Henry's Farm: A Year of Food and Life on a Sustainable Farm
I savored my way through The Seasons on Henry's Farm smelling, tasting and feeling the wonderful intimacies Brockman shares about life on the farm and the challenges and bounties of the land. Thankfully, we have farmers who connect to the land this way. It helps me remember to support and cherish what good, healthy food can do for palates, people, and the environment.
Preserving Food without Freezing or Canning: Traditional Techniques Using Salt, Oil, Sugar, Alcohol, Vinegar, ...
The Gardeners and Farmers of Centre Terre Vivante
Chelsea Green Publishing
An excellent book on food preservation
Basically this covers all of the non-freezing and non-canning food preservation techniques. Root cellaring (cold storage), lactic fermentation (pickles, sauerkraut), salt, oil, sugar, alcohol, and vinegar presevations, and drying are all discussed along with recipes taking advantage of each technique. I found the methods to be more useful than the recipes, which are quite simple and really are ...
Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen
love it! delicious and accessible
i love this book. i have been a vegetarian off an on throughout my life. while right now i'm not a complete veggie, i still try to incorporate more non meat dishes. So i look to vegetarian cookbooks. but so many of them rely heavily on tofu, which is not something i can always convince my meat eating husband to eat. This cookbook is beautiful. the photos are just mouthwatering. the ...
Seasonal Fruit Desserts: From Orchard, Farm, and Market
seasonal berry desserts
This book of seasonal berry desserts is wonderful! I can't wait to start making them!
What We Eat When We Eat Alone: Stories and 100 Recipes
What you eat when you eat alone
Have not finished this book, but have read enough to find it engaging and a satisfying read. Most of the "recipes" don't appeal to me (saltine crackers in coffee, for example), but it is fascinating to see what people do when they are alone. Also, you will probably find that what you do is not so weird after all!
Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America's Farmers' Markets
Beautiful and Practical
This is a cookbook I tend to read from cover to cover at the start of each CSA season. Madison's recipes provide lots of inspiration when I'm dealing with box after box of greens early in the season, and plenty of delicious ideas once we get into the many varieties of tomatoes, eggplants, and squash later on. Madison is a wonderful chef and an entertaining writer, which is a plus for food geeks ...
This Can't Be Tofu!: 75 Recipes to Cook Something You Never Thought You Would--and Love Every Bite
There is no reason this should get a negative review
There is absolutely no reason this wonderful cookbook should get a single negative review. I am vegan, but I am not a fanatic and accept that others eat dairy and meat. There are maybe 3 or 4 recipes out of all the recipes that call for some type of animal product (egg or fish). I mean she is a "vegetarian". Yes, some "vegetarians" eat fish. Just like you find some vegetarians are fat. Everyone ...
Review of Blithe Tomato
"Blithe Tomato" is a little gem of a book. The stories are brief - just two or three pages. Just right for bed side reading. I read one or two before turning in each night. Madison has a keen eye for interesting and colorful characters. He has a dramatic flair with which he ends each piece with pithy remark or a line of wit. A philosopher in his own right he is clearly well educated. Witness ...
The Greens Cookbook
Edward Espe Brown
A cookbook I bought 20 yrs ago that I use again and again
First of all, this is not a perfect cookbook. The recipes are involved and time-consuming for a beginning cook, but if you love good food and learning, they are well worth the time investment. I bought this book as a poor student and struggled through some of the recipes but they are absolutely FANTASTIC recipes. I have never been disappointed. WHen I need a variant of a recipe I always look ...
The Supper of the Lamb: A Culinary Reflection (Modern Library Paperbacks)
Robert Farrar Capon
A Theological Romp Through the Kitchen
Robert Farrar Capon's "The Supper of the Lamb: A Culinary Reflection" is not like any cookbook I have ever come across. At least, I think it's a cookbook. Or it might be a book of theology. And it is funny. And perhaps that's what describes it the best. A funny, theological cookbook. First published in 1969, "The Supper of the Lamb" is about as different a cookbook as you can imagine. It's ...
Bengali Cooking: Seasons and Festivals
Ms. Banerji's Bengali Cooking: Seasons and Festivals
"Bengali Cooking: Seasons and Festival" by Chitrita Banerji (2007) could almost be taken as the classic/definitive document on Bengali cooking. It's not just cookbook written in the usual choppy style; it is a very readable and pleasant narrative document on Bengal's food, culture and civilization. The book is well-written. It's the first ever English language book written on the culinary ...
Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen
love this book!
I have been cooking from this book for a few months and Deborah Madison has quickly become one of my favorite (if not my go-to) cookbook authors. I also have here Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Local Flavors, and Vegetarian Suppers (all of them will forever have a space on my large cookbook shelves - but hers stay on my counter usually and don't even get put on the bookcase downstairs because I ...
The Savory Way
Excellent Culinary Source for Vegetarians and Others
`The Savory Way' is an early (1990) book from leading vegetarian cookbook author, Deborah Madison so, as Ms. Madison has a new book on the way, I thought it was high time for me to catch up with her body of work so I can give an informed review of how her new volume fits into her other books. Ms. Madison is a former colleague of Alice Waters and Lindsey Shere at Chez Panisse who specializes in ...
It's a Long Road to a Tomato: Tales of an Organic Farmer Who Quit the Big City for the (Not So) Simple Life
Recently I read IT'S A LONG ROAD TO A TOMATO: TALES OF AN ORGANIC FARMER WHO QUIT THE BIG CITY FOR THE (NOT SO) SIMPLE LIFE by Keith Stewart and so was engrossed that I neglected of my work. As a vendor at my local farmers market in St. Augustine, Florida were I sell herbs I have an inkling of the work that a farmer does, or at least I thought I did. This marvelous book tells it as it REALLY is. ...
