Top vegetarian cooking expert to appear at The Chino Farm in Rancho Santa Fe


Deborah Madison, a leading authority on vegetarian cooking, will be the next chef and author to the Good Earth/Great Chefs Series at The Chino Farm on Sunday, Oct. 6, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., with her new cookbook, Vegetable Literacy. This book signing and culinary event will also feature samples of her recipes based on the seasonal vegetables at The Chino Farm, along with beer pairings from a local brewery.

Vegetable Literacy is a cookbook that explores the diversity of the vegetable kingdom, revealing the surprising relationships between vegetables, edible flowers, herbs, and wild plants within the same botanical families. It shows cooks that, because of their shared characteristics, vegetables within the same family can be used interchangeably in cooking.

The event is free, and will be held rain or shine. The Chino Farm is located at 6123 Calazada Del Bosque, Rancho Santa F, CA 92067.

Books can be pre-ordered at or purchased at the event. The farmstand will be open for shopping during the event.
