The Launch of the Cookbook

For years I've been saying I'm going to write a cookbook. It's about time I walked the talk. I have this idea of writing up recipes that can be transformed in several ways, recipes that become more of a constellation than a fixed formula, recipes that can accommodate many different diets and tastes and still be delicious. As the family story goes, my great-grandmother had seven children and she cooked each of them something they liked for dinner every night. I have become deft at revising recipes from The Joy of Cooking to suit my vegetarian diet, or my children's tastes, or my husband's dietary restrictions. I have converted recipes I love to be vegan, gluten-free, and non-dairy. My recipes can be transformed in many directions.

During 2010, I'm setting for myself the goal of writing up all my recipes, in all their variations and transformations, on this blog, in preparation for creating my own cookbook to be entitled Amy's Transformational Vegetarian Recipes. Please join me on this adventure.
