Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone

by Deborah Madison

Ten Speed Press | November 6, 2007 | Hardcover

Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone is rated 5 out of 5 by 7.

The tenth anniversary edition of this landmark cookbook, with more than 325,000 copies in print, includes a new introduction from Deborah Madison, America’s leading authority on vegetarian cooking.

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. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone teaches readers how to build flavor into vegetable dishes, how to develop vegetable stocks, and how to choose, care for, and cook the many vegetables available to cooks today. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is in every way Deborah Madison’s magnum opus, featuring 1,400 recipes suitable for committed vegetarians, vegans (in most cases), and everyone else who loves good food. For nonvegetarians, the recipes can be served alongside meat, fish, or fowl and incorporated into a truly contemporary style of eating that emphasizes vegetables and fruits for health and well-being.

Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is the most comprehensive vegetarian cookbook ever published. The recipes, which range from appetizers to desserts, are colorful and imaginative as well as familiar and comforting. Madison introduces readers to innovative main course salads; warm and cold soups; vegetable braises and cobblers; golden-crusted gratins; Italian favorites like pasta, polenta, pizza, and risotto; savory tarts and galettes; grilled sandwiches and quesadillas; and creative dishes using grains and heirloom beans. At the heart of the book is the A-to-Z vegetable chapter, which describes the unique personalities of readily available vegetables, the sauces and seasonings that best complement them, and the simplest ways to prepare them. “Becoming a Cook” teaches cooking basics, from holding a knife to planning a menu, and “Foundations of Flavor” discusses how to use sauces, herbs, spices, oils, and vinegars to add flavor and character to meatless dishes. In each chapter, the recipes range from those suitable for everyday dining to dishes for special occasions. And through it all, Madison presents a philosophy of cooking that is both practical and inspiring.

Despite its focus on meatless cooking, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is not just for vegetarians—it''s for everyone interested in learning how to cook vegetables creatively, healthfully, and passionately. The recipes are remarkably straightforward, using easy-to-find ingredients in inspiring combinations. Some are simple, others more complex, but all are written with an eye toward the seasonality of produce. Madison''s joyful and free-spirited approach to cooking will send you into the kitchen with confidence and enthusiasm. Whether you are a kitchen novice or an experienced cook, this wonderful cookbook has something for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic... I have had this cookbook for years now and it never lets me down. I am not a vegetarian, but I like my veggies, and I like them cooked well. Time and time again, I have refered to Deborah Madison's recipes. It's also practical with lots of suggested sauces & vinaigrettes to accompany vegetables. This book is dogeared and smuged, just like a great cookbook should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Title is deceiving! Too bad that the word 'vegetarian' is in the title as this is a brilliant book that every cook should have on hand. It is more like 'how to cook and serve food in an excellent way'. Every foodie would enjoy a copy, will become a real classic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from coconut If I could only have one cookbook, this is the one I would have. What I have gained from this book, is a much better understanding of ingredients and how to use them. The instructions are clear & straightforward, and all the recipes I have tried so far have worked out beautifully for me.

Warm Crostini with Blue Cheese and Walnuts I love to serve these with a glass of sherry, a bowl of pumpkin soup, or a salad of pears and endive.  The butter melts into the crisp toast; the cheese stays on top.  It''s heady and very aromatic. Makes 8 8 slices baguette or country bread 4 ounces Roquefort, Maytag, or Danish blue 3 tablespoons butter at room temperature 1 teaspoon cognac 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts Freshly milled pepper Finely chopped parsley Toast the bread under the broiler until nicely browned on one side, then a little less so on the second.  Cream the cheese and butter until smooth, then work in the cognac and three-quarters of the walnuts and season with pepper.  Spread on the paler side of the toasts, then broil until the cheese is bubbling.  Remove, dust with the remaining nuts, and garnish with parsley.  Serve warm. Lentil Soup Savored over a large part of the world, lentil soups are one of the best-liked, easiest-to-cook, and most varied of soups.  The earthy flavor of lentils is complemented by Indian spices, Western herbs, cream, tomato, greens, and anything slightly tart, such as sorrel or lemon. German brown lentils are the ones we see most commonly, and they make good soups.  But the tiny French slate-green Le Puy lentils, available at specialty stores and in bulk at many natural food stores, make the prettiest and most delicious soups.  They''re entirely w
