Lives and Lore from Buddha to the Beatles

More than a cookbook author, Rynn Berry is a literary detective and scholar adventurer. He is the first to have founded and published the vegetarian recipes favored by Leonardo da Vinci, which he translated from medieval Latin into English. He is also the first to have discovered vegetarian recipes for Louisa May Alcott's father, Bronson Alcott, which he found written in his wife Abigail's hand-written recipe book. Berry has worked similar feats of research for such vegetarian immortals as Pythagoras, Gautama the Buddha, Socrates, Plato, Jesus Christ, Plutarch, Perry Shelley, Tolstoy, Annie Besant, Gandhi, and George Bernard Shaw. He has also collected recipes from such contemporary vegetarians as Paul and Linda McCartney, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Swami Prabhupada. Recipes were culled from cookbooks left behind or from the notes of family members and housekeepers. Other recipes were gleaned or carefully recreated from historical accounts.

Famous Vegetarians' more than 70 recipes include soups, grains and pastas, soyfood entrees, vegetable entrees (nearly two dozen), salads and sandwiches, breads and desserts.
