THE GEORGE BERNARD SHAW VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK
Here is an intimate glimpse of a hidden side of the famous vegetarian gastronome, and is a treasure trove of delectable and distinctive recipes. George Bernard Shaw retained his intellectual and physical vigor into his 95th year on a vegetarian diet. The renowned playwright was a man ahead of his time in many ways: an advocate of pacifism, equality of the sexes and of human and animal rights.
Shaw loved good food, and this book is a collection of his favorite recipes, presented for easy preparation by today's cook. The noted biographer, R.J. Minney, has colorfully set the scene of Shaw's vegetarian repasts with his illustrious guests. Readers will be amused to learn that this paragon of the arts possessed an all too human sweet tooth, and a wide range of irresistible desserts are included. There are suggested menus for full course gourmet meals and more than 180 recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, sauces, savories and main dishes.
