Moosewood Cookbook based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
We own this because it is a classic, not because we are vegeterians. Our copy has a cover that is falling apart and many food stains in it - not from us though. We have yet to cook from it.
I'm really surprised to see fewer than 1,000 people have this book. I think practically everyone in my family on both sides, and my wife's family on both sides has this book. And just about everyone they know too. The recipes are great, with such staple foods. The book is really useable, with large hand-drawn-looking fonts and sketches. Be aware though, that just because recipes in here are vegetarian, they are not always 100% healthy, given the quantities of oil, butter, etc used. Of course these can be modified as desired. There are often suggestions for alternatives, and no glossy photos to make me feel bad when I drip stuff onto it. This is an everyday cookbook which generally uses everyday and accessible ingredients - none of this going to the ends of the earth for an ingredient that sounds like Dr. Seuss made it up and only grows on the top of the mountain Ishkabibble. Can't recommend this cook book enough, and have already given it to all my parents and siblings. Watch out friends and family, you know what's in your near-future!
Lovely homely presentation of some lovely homely recipes.
I still cook out of Moosewood to this day. I became acquainted with my first copy of the original version of Moosewood in the 70's, found in the barn of the old Vermont victorian where I was renting a room (at age 16!). Surrounded by Quakers, hippies and ex-cons, we all cooked vegetarian most of the time (who could afford meat??). I have many fond memories of Moosewood and the meals which came from it. I learned to drink my first wine and my first beer accompanying many of these dishes. My favorite standby recipes that I still cook today include Spinach Ricotta Pie, Stuffed Zucchini Turkish style, Gypsy Soup, Gazpacho (a good chunky version), Russian Borscht, and Eggplant Pate version #2.
I haven't quite drunk the Moosewood Collective Kool Aid yet. But I do like Mollie Katzen. A lot.
This was about the first cookbook I came across, at a friend's house. She had just returned from one year in the US. I loved the lettering, the food, the descriptions... when I saw this book years later in a bookstore in my country, I rushed to the counter to buy it. Coming home, I found out I had just bought Molly Katzen's revised edition of the great original. Very disappointing. She now told us in every recipe to use less butter and get rid of the eggs. Or try new fat free options. Now the whole focus was not on the great food and cooking that is so eminent in the early Moosewood. It was on health.It ruined my view of this favorite cookbook of mine; she shouldn't have edited it this way! Still, there are a great bunch of classic Moosewood recipes in here.
This is a wonderful cookbook featuring simple and unique vegetarian soups, salads, sauces (my favorite section), sandwiches, entrees, and deserts. It is hand written in a personable style that makes one feel as though their mother wrote it just for them. This is not one of those cookbooks that call for numerous ingredients which may only be found in specialty or ethnic stores. An excellent book for beginners to vegetarian eating, as well as the everyday vegetarian. This cookbook has been my faithful guide to healthy and appetizing vegetarian cooking for over 11 years.
