CHAPTER 1 VEGETARIAN CURIOUS Deborah Madison and Cooking from Your Garden There is perhaps no chef more celebrated for her love of vegetables than Deborah Madison. As the author of the definitive text on vegetarian cooking (that would be Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, published in 1997), plus more than a dozen other vegetable-forward cookbooks, Deborah has carved a career out of meatless recipes over the past 4 decades. "You cannot be too strict about things. You never know what's going to change." After cooking with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse in the late 1970s, Deborah opened Greens, an acclaimed vegetarian restaurant borne out of the San Francisco Zen Center, in 1979. She launched a Slow Food chapter in Santa Fe, near where she now lives, and is the former manager of the Santa Fe Farmers Market. Her many accolades include awards from the James Beard Foundation and the International Association of Culinary Professionals. And through it all, she's remained impossibly grounded. Take the way she describes what she grows in her garden. What begins as a simple list quickly escalates into a catalog that mirrors the fresh produce section at your local health food store, with a side of earnest commentary: spinach, chard, okra, kale, collards, squash, turnips ("my husband's a Southerner, so I plant turnip greens for him"), asparagus, artichokes, Jerusalem artichokes, heirloom tomatoes (up to 18 different varieties at one point, now down to 5: "that's really enough"), rhubarb, and peas. That's just a sampling. And then there are the herbs. She grows lovage, chervil, cilantro ("hard to grow because it bolts fast"), tarragon, oregano, basil, sage, rosemary, salad burnet, thyme, sorrel, parsley, and chives. Many gardeners will grumble and tell you that mint has taken over their gardens, springing up anywhere there's space and a trickle of water. But Deborah will tell you with a laugh, "I have a hard time growing mint!" Summer is her favorite time to experiment. "This year I planted corn and sorghum. I always like to try something I've never done before," she says. Past experiments include growing cumin, caraway, and anise. What she doesn't grow herself, she happily picks up at her local farmers' market. "It always seems like magic." So while the Deborah Madison of today still loves her vegetables, another factor has influenced what she eats and cooks lately: H
