KIRKUS REVIEW

Schulman, the formerly Texas-based author of The Vegetarian Feast and Fast Vegetarian Feasts, has discovered French cooking, moved to Paris, and instituted a monthly ""supper club"" in her apartment--where she feeds American and French guests inventive and well-prepared meals inspired by Mexican, Tex-Mex, French, or nouvelle cosmopolitan cuisine. The eclecticism notwithstanding, the dishes are classic in spirit; and Shulman is still essentially vegetarian (allowing for several fish dishes and a Thanksgiving turkey) and health-conscious. (She takes pride in her flavorful whole-wheat pie crest and continues to devise tasty low-fat substitutes for cream ingredients.) This menu cookbook allows readers to reproduce Shulman's feasts down to the wines and homemade breads that accompany them all; and her memories of each meal's inaugural service--at a sit-down supper club party, a Nicoise sandwich/ratatouille/pissaladiere picnic on the Seine, or a barge-party chalupas buffet for 150 Herald Tribune staff members--communicate the festive and convivial spirit of the event.
