This was an informative and important book for us to read (yes, we read cookbooks and to us they are novels) as we are aware of the growing importance of including more vegetarian and plant based recipes in our repertoire. There is an ongoing awareness of the source of our food ingredients and Ann Gentry's cookbook is devoted to eating healthfully – that is how she eats and what she feeds her family. This is not to say that we are becoming vegan, but we are serving more vegetable based entrees. The recipes in this cookbook are very inviting and can easily be served to the carnivore in your family. We did notice the Asian condiment ingredient influence in several of the recipes. Eden Foods does produce some of the Japanese umeboshi ingredients – Circle K kosher – and we are eager to explore using more of them in our cooking. This book has made the cut for inclusion on our cookbook shelf.
