With storage containers full of whole wheat flour, brown rice, jars of un homogenized honey, and bags of sesame seeds (a great find in a Chinese deli), Horton's cookbook kept me and those who passed through my door fat and happy, so to speak, with dinners of peanut rice, humus, honey whole wheat bread, and halvah.. Brew up and then ice some Red Zinger tea, and you will have a basic but satisfyingly nostalgic lunch or dinner...just add some tunes from the time, and you are all set. This is a highly enjoyable cookbook, whether you buy it for the recipes, or just to enjoy the people and places Horton shares with her readers. The hardcover has a groovy little kitty stamped in silver on the black book cover, a nice, tactile touch .A great gift for anyone enjoying natural foods and looking back to a very different time. Horton's book still proves basic does not have to be bland.
Lucy wasn't just collecting recipes, she was sharing that audacious experiment in alternative life styles, from the famous (and infamous) to the obscure. Along the way, she collects a fascinating assortment of recipes. (One of the eBay listings has photos of the contents pages).
It's worth it for the story of the 2nd Annual Pie-Baking Contest near Taos that prevailed over 2 broken down cars and torrential rains. (She checked with I-Ching for whether she should change her plans to stay for it from going to a Colorado Peyote Equinox celebration...)
I've read my copy many times, just to savor the enthusiasm of the times...
Its also full of good ideas, as well as stories. Being a what's in the frig and pantry cook, as well as prefering meatless meals, lots of good stuff in here.
And yes, I've now reached the "good old days" stage of life - and these were the good old days . . .
