When arriving in North America, Europeans found a cornucopia of ``new'' vegetables: corn, potatoes, wild rice, squash, pumpkin and many other species that inventive cooks incorporated into the daily diet. Atlas has compiled 100 such dishes in a book that combines the witty sayings and historical tidbits of her earlier Vegetariana with solid examples of regional cooking. They include myriad muffins and a Shaker herb bread, Pennsylvania Dutch corn and cabbage soup, Harvard beets and several succotash dishes. Desserts are especially mouthwatering, with a Boston cranberry pie that vies with Southern sweet-potato pie and a New Orleans bread pudding with whiskey sauce. The book is rounded out by 27 menu suggestions. (June)
