ISBN
9780525656012
From the author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone ("The Queen of Greens," The Washington Post)--a warm, bracingly honest memoir that also gives us an insider's look at the vegetarian movement. Thanks to her beloved cookbooks and groundbreaking work as the chef at Greens Restaurant in San Francisco, Deborah Madison, though not a vegetarian herself, has long been revered as this country's leading authority on vegetables. She profoundly changed the way generations of Americans think about cooking with vegetables, helping to transform "vegetarian" from a dirty word into a mainstream way of eating. But before she became a household name, Madison spent almost twenty years as an ordained Buddhist priest, coming of age in the midst of counterculture San Francisco. In this charmingly intimate and refreshingly frank memoir, she tells her story--and with it the story of the vegetarian movement--for the very first time. From her childhood in Big Ag Northern California to working in the kitchen of the then-new Chez Panisse, and from the birth of food TV to the age of green markets everywhere, An Onion in My Pocket is as much the story of the evolution of American foodways as it is the memoir of the woman at the forefront. It is a deeply personal look at the rise of vegetable-forward cooking, and a manifesto for how to eat well.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Deborah MadisonPublisher: Knopf Publishing GroupPublished: 11/10/2020ISBN: 9780525656012Pages: 320Weight: 1.20lbsSize: 8.30h x 6.10w x 1.30dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 03/09/2020Kirkus Reviews 03/15/2020
