WE SHOULD EAT more vegetarian, Cook announced Monday. Yesterday was Tuesday, and we returned to our normal Tuesday fast routine. But today she suited action to words, turning to the Master for guidance: Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.
It's a marvelous book, and Cook knows how to read it. She made the Mushroom-Barley Pilaf with sautéed mushrooms, a perfect dish for a winter evening. Then the green salad; then the tangerines and another piece of Becky's marvelous shortcake. I do love shortcake.
