Read in September, 2000

I have an original edition of this book and have used it prodigiously for learning how to cook. When I first looked at the book, not knowing it was a vegetarian cookbook, I said to my friend that I would buy it if it included a better recipe for split pea soup than the one I already learned to make in college.

I can still recall my humiliation when, on page 18, Molly proceeded to start on the soup where my own immature recipe left off. I recall that over the years I have added a ham hock and some more dry mustard and thyme to it, but otherwise it is a staple in winter for me.

I noticed that in later editions some of the recipes I loved, including, I think, Solyanka, were deleted from the new edition. I think recipes were modified to make things a bit healthier. Well I still like the old one, but it's good to know that this book still gets the respect it deserves, not only for being a seminal work but also for having such delicious recipes. If anyone wants the old recipes, please let me know.
