Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In a country whose cuisine is as regionally diverse as America's, it's no surprise that vegetarian cooking across the U.S.A. can mean anything from a Creole Eggplant Soufflé to Corn-Stuffed Peppers to Boston Cranberry Pie. Great American Vegetarian Cookbook has collected more than 500 recipes like these that reflect every region of the country, including New England, the South, Pennsylvania Dutch country, the Southwest, and the "heartland" of the Midwest.
Library Journal
Great American Vegetarian is the revised edition of Atlas's American Harvest (1987). In the decade since, many more fresh fruits and vegetables and once-exotic ingredients have become available. Atlas has revised her text to reflect the expanding marketplace, and she has also added more than 50 new recipes. With the ever-increasing interest in vegetarian cooking, most libraries could use Atlas's updated collection of regional specialties. Giobbi and Wolff's first edition of Eat Right, Eat Well (1985), something of a groundbreaker at the time, was widely praised. The authors have revised their book to reflect both the fact that although a low-fat diet may be healthful, one in which fat is severely restricted is not particularly beneficial, and that, instead of being harmful, olive oil can actually be good for you (the first time around, they tried to avoid olive oil, rather difficult to do when writing an authentic Italian cookbook). With more than 500 recipes--and Giobbi's charming line drawings as illustrations--this revision is well worth acquiring. [According to the publisher, an introductory note in the original text regarding fat content--"The total fat listed in the nutritional data includes other classes, e.g. phospholipids, and there is usually more than the sum of the saturated and unsaturated fats"--was inadvertently omitted from the new edition; it will be corrected in new printings.--Ed.]

    Very good

    This is a well organized cookbook. However, I wish all the recipes for each chapter was listed in the table of contents. That is my only complaint. This is a book whose time has come. There are many vegetarian cookbooks about ethnic cuisine but this one focuses solely on American vegetarian cuisine. The illustrations throughout the book are charming. If you do not have many vegetarian cookbooks & would like to cook vegetarian food that is familiar and tastes good, this is the book for you.
