I purchased the Moosewood Cookbook last summer, during one of my many attempts to revive the "health" level of my diet. I'm so glad that I added this book to my collection.
The recipes use a wide variety of ingredients. So, you'll never get bored if you cook from it on a regular basis. The variety in the collection also allows you to make use of fruits and vegetables that are in season throughout the year.
The time required to prepare most dishes is under an hour. This makes the book ideal for weekday cooking, a time when most of us should be eating better, but don't due to busy schedules. I made the vegetable chowder for dinner last night. I needed about an hour total. The result was a delicious, healthy, lowfat meal in a bowl. Perfect for a hectic Wednesday.
Finally, I'd like to say that everything I've cooked from this book has tasted FABULOUS! I haven't missed the fat. I love the fresh ingredients, particulary the use of herbs. And I love the fact that I'm eating healty food that also tastes wonderful.
Hats off to Mollie Katzen and the Moosewood crew. This book is a godsend.

Look, all I wanted to do was start eating more vegetables, and this book is getting me to do just that. All the recipes are easy; very few call for ingredients I can't find in rural Nebraska; and, most importantly, everything tastes *wonderful*. Do NOT assume that only vegetarians will find this book useful.

I've had this cook book for about 9 years now and have cooked nearly every recipe in it. It's easy to follow and the recipes are delicious. Each recipe has an estimated preparation and cooking time which is a great way to gauge the intensity of what you're in for before you start. I'd highly reccomend this book for beginers as well as more advanced cooks. Katzan explains each step in clear and easy langauge and also adds hints for where to obtain some of the more exotic ingredients. I've gotten so used to cooking some of the dishes that I've begun experimenting by substituting ingredients and seasonings. This cookbook includes dairy and eggs so it's not for vegans, but if you are ok with dairy and eggs then it's a good source.

A friend gave me this cookbook six years ago and I have tried nearly every recipe. This began my collection of vegetarian cookbooks, namely those from this author (Mollie Katzen) and the Moosewood Collective. I highly recommend it--it is easy to follow, has a lot of great information about ingredients, and the recipes all are delicious! The only drawback is that some of the recipes are time-consuming, but each recipe has an estimated time for its preparation and cooking. This is very helpful, especially if you are cooking for company. If you are vegetarian, this is a MUST for your collection. If you are not, it's a great cookbook to have anyway. Treating non-vegetarian friends to these recipes has often resulted in their reconsidering their eating habits!

I have been a vegitarian for 4 years now and have successfully introduced my family and friends to vegitarian cuisine. My meat-loving parents rave over the eggplant-almond enchiladas. My friend who eats meat and venison regularly is about ready to give it up! She adores the Sri Wasano's Infamous Indonesian Rice Salad (which is DELICIOUS!!). We call it "rice salad" for short!

Format: Paperback
Definitely a fun cookbook. It's a good guide to preparing some fun and interesting vegetarian foods. The recipes are easy to follow, and not too complicated at all. It's a collection of recipes which were prepared at the Moosewood restaurant, a vegetarian collective. The book is illustrated with a series of pen-and-ink drawings and cartoons. These drawings, along with the hand-lettered text, give it a fun, friendly feeling. In the first edition of the cookbook, this feeling of cooking as fun, and vegetarian cooking as a rich and varied cuisine was enhanced by the choice of recipes, including some which weren't necessarily good for you, but ended up tasting stellar. The updated edition, unfortunately, attempts to make many of the recipes healthier, by cutting oil, cholesterol, and eliminating some of the classic tasty yet dreadfully unhealthy recipes. In my experience, the modified recipes occasionally come up short of the mark. This book is still entertaining, and certainly worthwhile to have around, but if the opportunity presents itself, try to dig up a copy of the original cookbook rather than the recent edition.

Once you try a recipe in this book it is an instant favorite. All the recipes are winners. And it's easy. Simply put this book is full of recipes that will produce "good stuff". Though the recipes are "international" the result is very American.

When I open this cookbook, I can trick myself into thinking it's a collection of favorite recipes assembled and handwritten just for me... if you've ever recieved one of those handmade "collection" notebooks (poems, quotes, recipes, whatever) from a friend, you'll know what I mean. Slightly delusional pretense, I know, but that is what makes the original Moosewood cookbook about more than just food... though the food itself is certainly delicious. Most of the recipes are simple, relatively fast, and don't include frustratingly hard to find ingredients. Other reviewers have mentioned the dairy heaviness and the inauthentic ethnic cuisine. Personally, I prefer the older, dairy-heavy version, but be aware that a "New Moosewood Cookbook" has also been released that reduces some of the dairy. As for authenticity... sure, these recipes may not present the exact method used in a particular culture, but foods change with importation. Chinese food in China doesn't taste like Chinese food in England, Japan, or wherever. Enjoy the adaptations, and if you find one you especially like, research it and find the real version!
