"A one-woman masterpiece celebrating vegetarianism, it's an offbeat, lighthearted look at the lore of vegetarian foods, as well as a compilation of good, appetizing recipes." —Detroit News
"A treasure–Atlas's historical journeys are whimsical and memorable. Good, simple recipes, enough to form an entire repertoire of healthy, ethnic cuisine." —Vegetarian Times
