Deborah Madison is the founding chef of Greens Restaurant in San Francisco, author of nine cookbooks, award winner of the M.F.K. Fisher Award, the I.A.C.P. Julia Child cookbook of the year award, and a 3-time winner of the James Beard Award. In Vegetable Literacy, Deborah celebrates the diversity of edible plants in over 300 recipes. Her cooking style is intuitive and inspired from a deep knowledge of food, flavors, farmer markets, farming and time in the kitchen. Home chefs will discover this is more than a cookbook—it is an incredible resource of botanical, historical and horticultural information.
From Margaret Grade

Every cook of our generation has been inspired by Deborah Madison. Long before the movement of bringing the earth to table, she convinced us that sides could be center pieces, and that a vegetarian meal could be deliciously elegant and sensual.  In her own informed and poetic fashion, Deborah was espousing using the whole plant well before the rest of us were singing our own praises for using the whole animal.  
Daniel and I will do what we’ve done for many years, that is, draw from the edible riches within reach, to compose a dinner of dishes informed by the recipes of Vegetable Legacy.  Attendees will be seated en famille and food will likewise be served in family style.  All of the families that Deborah has defined in her new book will make appearances.  You should be there to witness them and gobble them up with glee.
The Point Reyes Farmers’ Market, is a small and stellar example of what Deborah Madison has been advocating for many years, most pointedly in Cooking and Eating From America’s Farmers’ Market.
