In a review of Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone, Gourmet magazine wrote "Before you even read a word, the clean type, elegant, well-organized layout, and helpful illustrations reassure you that you won’t be pulling your hair out trying to follow a recipe. And then Madison’s warm, knowledgeable prose pulls you in."
Michael Ruhlman noted "For all these reasons, in the 17 years I've been writing about cooks and cooking, I have purchased a single cookbook, several years ago, for myself, a single book to inspire me and broaden my culinary imagination: "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone," by Deborah Madison, .." and The New Yorker "found Madison to be a charming and non-threatening psychopomp into the realm of what I imagined to be the half-dead, the eaters of what she frequently calls “plant food,” which, to me, sounded like “fish food.”" 
Publishers Weekly gave a starred review writing "Many have tried to create a reliable, encyclopedic vegetarian cookbook, but few have succeeded. Madison (The Greens Cookbook; The Savory Way) comes through with a weighty volume.." and called it an "incredibly complete and triumphant effort."
