By Anna Thomas

Illustrated by Rodica Prato

Alfred A. Knopf, 1996


The author of the books that became the bibles of vegetarian cooking, Anna Thomas returns with a completely new menu-based cookbook that reflects the way we live and eat today.  Here are more than 325 all-new recipes that lean to lighter fare, fresh tastes, and the pungent ethnic flavors that Anna loves.  The sixty-six menus are arranged loosely by season, and range from simple family meals to elegant little parties, to a summer buffet for a crowd and a seven course celebration dinner. There are soup suppers, easy pasta dinners, salad lunches, a Thanksgiving for everyone, and a formal New Year's Eve dinner.


The captivating voice of Anna Tomas is irresistible as she encourages her contemporaries, pressured by all the demands of modern life, to carve out a little time to experience the joy of sharing with family and friends the pleasures of the table.




"An exuberant new cookbook that reflects the way we live and eat today. Thomas proves once more that meatless meals can be fashionable, fun and satisfying."
