Introducing participants: Martha Rose Shulman

Ms. Shulman is an award-winning author of nine cookbooks, including Mediterranean Light, Mexican Light, Provencal Light, The Vegetarian Feast, Entertaining Light, and Mediterranean HarvestThe Vegetarian Feast won a 1979 Tastemaker Award (a precursor of the prestigious James Beard Awards) for Best Book, Health and Special Diets category, and remains in print.

Her Mediterranean Harvest is a culmination of years of meticulous research gleaned from Shulman’s travels through France, Spain, Italy, the Balkans, Greece, Turkey, North Africa, and the Middle East. Beets have never been the same for me. You can see why by heading over at her vegetarian recipe series at NYT.
