July Cookbook of the Month is VEG. COOKING FOR EVERYONE

In a very tight race, Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone came out 4, count em, 4 votes ahead of The Glorious Foods of Greece (13-9)

I'll be posting the threads at the very end of June so that we can get started right away.

I've found a number of Madison recipes online and will also post those. Any help the usual suspects can provide in the realm of links would be gladly accepted.

  1. In light of an interesting article in this morning's Boston Globe about rising meat and dairy prices, July's COTM now seems more timely than ever.

    Here's an exerpt:
    "In the latest bout of food inflation, beef, pork, poultry, and even eggs, cheese, and milk are expected to get more expensive as livestock owners go out of business or are forced to slaughter more cattle, hogs, turkeys, and chickens to cope with rocketing costs for corn-based animal feed."

    The entire article is here:

    1. re: Gio

      Yeah, a lot of the corn now grown in the States is for ethanol now instead of animal feed. Well, since reading the Omnivore's Dilemma on how cows are actually allergic to corn, being grass-eating animals, and have to be fed all sorts of other stuff so that their bodies will accept it....

    2. Thank you, oakjoan. Here are some links that I grabbed from the first four pages of results by googling on
