Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The iconic Moosewood restaurant in Ithaca, N.Y., is known for its vegetarian cuisine and has been serving food for 40 years. Moosewood is owned by a collective of 19 passionate (mostly self-taught) cooks who run the restaurant and write cookbooks. The latest installment—their 13th collection (five have been nominated for James Beard awards, and two have won)—is a delightful “best of” collection of the restaurant’s most popular dishes, as well as some recipes that haven’t previously been published. The book is straightforward, with small international twists. Hearty, flavorful soups include classics like Moosewood’s famous cream of spinach and French onion, as well as the more exotic West African Peanut Soup and Chilled Cantaloupe-Amaretto Soup. There are fun spins on the traditional burger: Curried Red Lentil Burgers, and Mushroom-Tofu-Pecan Burgers, along with seasonal salad plates. Other chapters include “Beans,” “Frittatas and Pies,” “Casseroles,” “Stuffed Vegetables,” “Tofu,” “Pasta,” and “Fish.” There’s something for everyone in this comprehensive and extremely useful cookbook, which stresses community living and eating meals with style. (Sept.)
From the Publisher
“Well-done, Moosewood! You have become a beloved part of American cultural history and morphed into a truly national institution that most of us know through the cookbooks that have emerged. One after the other, those enticing combinations of delicious recipes and lively prose have borne witness to Moosewood’s most compelling idea: “community” - that harmonious feeling among a group of people that takes place in the kitchen and at the table as we share a commitment to good food and being together. Moosewood Restaurant Favorites will introduce a new generation to a beloved institution and call up happy memories of meals and recipes over the years.”—Nancy Harmon Jenkins, author of The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, The Essential Mediterranean and many others

“As any experienced cook knows, extracting the savor of vegetables, completely without meat, presents its own special difficulties. Fortunately, the Moosewood collective has succeeded in meeting those challenges and produced a fine book of direct and simple recipes, each with its own savory twists. This thorough book will delight vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike and will become a cornerstone in any cook’s library.  In short, Moosewood has elevated meatless cooking to the level of great cuisine and artfully showcases vegetarian cooking at its finest.”—James Peterson, author of 15 cookbooks and winner of 7 James Beard Awards
