AN ONION IN MY POCKET My Life with Vegetables

by | Read by Deborah Madison

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrating her own memoir, cookbook author Deborah Madison (VEGETARIAN COOKING FOR EVERYONE) shares her food journey over 60 years. Madison's nonprofessional narration does nothing to enhance what could have been an interesting story, which includes her time at San Francisco's Zen Center and her stints at the restaurants Greens and Chez Panisse. Madison recalls honing her skills cooking vegetarian food in an era before "farm to table" was the catchphrase it is today, when quinoa wasn't yet available in the U.S. and American-made goat cheese was brand-new. Listeners will hear about Madison's childhood on family farms, the bounty of California produce, and why she herself is not a vegetarian. Madison's passionate and detailed reminiscences offer food for thought for only the most dedicated listeners. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
