Yesterday I picked up Deborah Madison's latest cookbook entitled 
_Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone_.  It's enormous, containing 1400 
recipes, and is a good companion book to her previous efforts _The 
Greens Cookbook_ and _The Savory Way_.

Madison's writing is elegant, her recipes sublime.  Here is a person
who gardens and cooks from her garden, who has recipes that embrace
products available from the garden togethor.  You won't read "add a
tsp of dried oregano and 1/2 tsp. of thyme" very often in this book.
Madison is great for teaching the use of fresh herbs of all types,
many of which are available only to gardeners including various
thymes, basils, chervil, sorrel, etc.  The book contains recipes for 
just about every type of vegetable you are likely to grow or see in a 
greengrocer's store.

According to the cover, the book is introductory priced at $35 
through January at which time the price goes up.
