The Moosewood Cookbook has inspired generations to cook simple, healthy, and seasonal food. A classic listed as one of the top ten best-selling cookbooks of all time by the New York Times, this 40th anniversary edition of Mollie Katzen's seminal book will be a treasured addition to the cookbook libraries of fans young and old.
In 1974, Mollie Katzen hand-wrote, illustrated, and locally published a spiral-bound notebook of recipes for vegetarian dishes inspired by those she and fellow cooks served at their small restaurant co-op in Ithaca, NY. Several iterations and millions of copies later, the Moosewood Cookbook has become one of the most influential and beloved cookbooks of all time—listed by the New York Times as one of the best-selling cookbooks in history, inducted into the James Beard Award Cookbook Hall of Fame, and coined a Cookbook Classic by the International Association of Culinary Professionals. Mollie’s Moosewood Cookbook has inspired generations to fall in love with plant-based home cooking, and, on the fortieth anniversary of that initial booklet, continues to be a seminal, timely, and wholly personal work. With a new introduction by Mollie, this commemorative edition will be a cornerstone for any cookbook collection that long-time fans and those just discovering Moosewood will treasure.

The Moosewood Cookbook is a classic collection of recipes as well as an example of the difference a small group of people can make. Originally a spiral-bound collection of vegetarian recipes from the Moosewood Restaurant, the book is a classic best-seller for good reason. Mollie Katzen's handwritten text and illustrations give the book a warm, friendly tone and provide detailed information and instructions. My favorite section of the book is A Few Baked Things and Sandwiches. Recipes such as "Bleu Cheese Heaven" and "Celebratory Sandwiches" celebrate the simple art of sandwich making. Other sections include Soups, Salads, Entrees and Desserts. The recipes, including Sweet Potato Pancakes, Lasagne and Ricotta Pie, will appeal to vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. I highly recommend the Moosewood Cookbook as a classic vegetarian cookbook as well as an inspiring reminder of the importance of good food and good friends. Although it is primarily a cookbook, it is a pleasure to simply sit and read the Moosewood Cookbook.
