An Onion in My Pocket: My Life with Vegetables

2020 Knopf

by

This title is currently available for pre-order, and will be ready for shipping and instore pickup after November 10th 2020.

From the author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone -a warm, bracingly honest memoir that also gives us an insider's look at the vegetarian movement.

Thanks to her beloved cookbooks (14 cookbooks, 1.2 million sold!) and groundbreaking work as the chef at Greens Restaurant in San Francisco, Deborah Madison, though not a vegetarian herself, has long been revered as this country's leading authority on vegetables. She profoundly changed the way generations of Americans think about cooking with vegetables.

But before she became a household name, Madison spent almost twenty years as an ordained Buddhist priest, coming of age in the midst of counterculture San Francisco. Here, she tells her story-and with it the story of the vegetarian movement-for the very first time.

From her childhood in Big Ag Northern California to working in the kitchen of the then-new Chez Panisse, and from the birth of food TV to the age of green markets everywhere, An Onion in My Pocket is as much the story of the evolution of American foodways as it is the memoir of the woman at the forefront.

A deeply personal look at the rise of vegetable-forward cooking, and a manifesto for how to eat well.
