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. Read full review

This is a classic that belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who cooks. Personally, I'm omnivorous, but there are dishes in here I can't live without. With a renewed interest in vegetarian cuisine for health reasons, this book is making a much deserved comeback. Read full review

About the author (1972)

William A. Alcott (1798-1859), physician, relative of "Little Women" author Louisa May Alcott, and founding member of the American Vegetarian Society, was also an educator, reformer, physician, and author of 108 books. He became one of the most prolific authors in early American history, and he wrote frequently on health and educational reform, as well as physical education, school and house design, family life, and diet. Many of his works are still widely cited today.
