What Julia Child is to French cooking, Deborah Madison is to vegetarian cooking--a demystifier and definitive guide to the subject. After her many years as a teacher and writer, she realized that there was no comprehensive primer for vegetarian cooking, no single book that taught vegetarians basic cooking techniques, how to combine ingredients, and how to present vegetarian dishes with style. Originally published in 1997, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone was both ahead of its time and an instant classic, and has endured as one of the world's most popular vegetarian cookbooks. Featuring 1,400 recipes suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and everyone who loves fresh produce and good food, New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is as full of practical information as it is inspiring, a treasure from a truly irreplaceable culinary voice.

Deborah Madison is the award-winning author of 12 books, including The Greens Cookbook, The Savory Way, Local Flavors, and, most recently, Vegetable Literacy. She received the M.F.K. Fisher Mid-Career Award from Les Dames d'Escoffier in 1994.
