Becky Hostetter has been a staple in vegetarian cooking in Indianapolis since the 1970s. She has worked for the Earth Garden and Stillwater in Broad Ripple. If you lived in this city between 1990 and 1997, you probably remember Essential Edibles, co-owned by Becky and husband David. Essential Edibles spread the vegetarian gospel with eggplant sandwiches, soul-saving salads and luscious lemon bars whose tangy-sweet bite is memorable twenty years hence. In the years since, Becky busied herself as a private chef.
