*The Common Ground was an amazing restaurant in Brattleboro, VT. It was a co-operative, community restaurant that opened in 1971. It was my favorite place to eat and I would make sure that any trip northward always included a detour and stop there. Sadly they closed a few years ago. This cookbook was published in 1983.
