Laurel's Kitchen is a vegetarian cookbook, first published in 1976, that contributed to the increasing awareness of vegetarian eating in the US. Its authors were Laurel Robertson, Carol Flinders, and Bronwen Godfrey, and its subtitle was a handbook for vegetarian cookery & nutrition.
"It's one thing-though nothing small-to turn out a flawless soufflé," says Carol Flinders. "It's quite another to come up with an endless variety of appealing, highly nutritious vegetarian meals using only basic, inexpensive, easily available foods. This is the art our book is meant to convey."
And the team of Laurel Robertson, Carol Flinders, and Bronwen Godfrey has managed to put into words some very complete instructions on Just that art: the transformation of everyday staples into tasty, total-nourishment dishes for this country's growing number of "vegans" (or non-meat-eaters).
But their book, "Laurel's Kitchen", with its gentle, painstaking teachings and woodcut illustrations, does even more than that. It conveys, too, its authors' conviction that good health is not "the gift of a fortunate few, blessed by heredity and lots of protein", but "the birthright of all creatures".
