A more than decent cookbook, but the end of the intro made me raise my eyebrows.

"This two-hours-later course is especially recommended if grass is smoked socially at your house. If you have passed a joint around before dinner to sharpen gustatory perceptions, you most likely will pass another one after dinner, and everyone knows what that will do — the blind munchies can strike at any time."

I treasure some of the recipes in the two volumes of "The Vegetarian Epicure," especially for quiche and Mideastern meze. The revised edition of the book that came out in the 1990s was not as good. I put a lot of effort into some of its recipes, only to be disappointed. ( )

One of the books which I know I can trust. I LOVE the Mushrooms berkeley recipe, which our family always calls "Dark and Evil" when it appeals on the table. It's starting to fall apart from use, but I'd never be without it. ( )

Introduction:  Good food is a celebration of life, and it seems absurd to me that in celebrating life we should take life.

Book description
One advantage of vegetarianism is the primacy of plants in the food chain. Foods are less processed and have fewer chemical additives or contaminants. Vegetarian meals may be epicurean and are more flexible for serving than traditional meals containing meat. Suggestions are given for entertaining, menu planning and a variety of dishes. Recipes are included.
