Anna Thomas wrote The Vegetarian Epicure in 1973, which transformed the landscape of American cooking. She is also the author of the James Beard Award-winning cookbook Love Soup, and, most recently, Vegan, Vegetarian, Omnivore. She lives in Los Angeles and Ojai, California.
"Love Soup is a wonder...a must companion for everyone
with a vegetable garden, or a kitchen (this means everybody)." --
Margaret Roach - A Way to Garden
"Anna has a way of making food accessible and comfortable while keeping it ethnically real...Her warmth infuses the food, and her intuitive cooking talent is generous, not at all precious. The result? Anyone can, and will want to, make her recipes easily, happily, and with confidence. This book is great." -- Mollie Katzen - The Daily Beast
