"I have been inspired by Anna Thomas since her Vegetarian Epicure first rocked my world in the early 1970s. Now, in this fresh, edgy book, Anna sets out to help both vegetarians and omnivores eat better-and to help us all eat together. There are few experiences more exciting than when a pioneering creative spirit still surprises and sparkles. I love this book!" -- Mollie Katzen, James Beard Award-winning author of The Moosewood Cookbook "For us vegetarians, Anna Thomas's earlier books are true classics. With this spectacular new book, she casts the net wider, inviting eaters of all stripes to join her in the kitchen. The result? A beautiful, inspirational volume that belongs in every cook's library." -- James Oseland, editor-in-chief of Rodale's Organic Life and author of Cradle of Flavor "What an exuberant and inspirational collection of recipes! Poring through the pages of Anna Thomas's new cookbook is like entering a bustling and joy-filled home where there's always something delicious on the stove-and room for everyone at the table. Here's a book I could happily cook from every day and never grow bored." -- Molly Stevens, James Beard Award-winning author of All About Roasting and All About Braising
