“When seeking a marker of the changes in the cookbook market over the last 40 years, one need look no further than Ithaca, New York.” ―Publishers Weekly
“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

Many of the recipes are familiar and much-loved by me. Their carrot cake is mouth-watering as is their banana cake with cream cheese frosting. Their main courses are fantastic and, except for fish, the book is vegetarian.
I highly recommend this book to all lovers of Moosewood and for those new to this wonderful series of cookbooks as well. They are all a joy to cook from and I will get started with this newest one tonight.
We don't live near New York and have never heard of or been to Moosewood Restaurant so that was not a consideration of my purchase. The promise of famous, sought after, line up around the block vegetarian recipes was my motivation.
Here is what I found in the book:
- APPETIZERS x 10
- DIPS and SPREADS x 10
- SOUPS x 20
- SANDWICHES x 11
- BURGERS x 5
- MAIN DISH SALADS x 16
- CURRIES and STEWS x 13
- BEANS x 10
- FRITTATAS and PIES x 6
- CASSEROLES x 6
- STUFFED VEGETABLES x 6
- WRAPS, ROLLS and STREUDELS x 7
- TOFU x 8
- PASTA x 12
- FISH x 16
- SIDE SALADS x 10
- SIDES x 19
- SIDE GRAINS x 12
- SALAD DRESSINGS x 6
- CONDIMENTS and SALSAS x 15
- SAUCES and GRAVIES x 12
- DESSERTS x 30
The list of recipes is extensive with a variety of flavors.....heavy use of sesame oil and Moroccan spices....not something our family is particularly fond of - we have so far cooked up half a dozen of the recipes and found that they are not out of this world, but rather typical and mundane.....certainly didn't need a cookbook to instruct me how to make some of these dishes.
My other disappointment was in the photos of recipes - here is what photos the book contains:
1. Peppercorn and lemon marinated feta
2. Roasted white and sweet potatoes with chipotle aioli
3. Olivada, edamame wasabi spread, red bean and walnut spread
4. Portuguese white bean and kale soup
5. Red Lentil Soup
6. Moosewood's classic tofu burgers

While I loved the ingenuity of some of these recipes, and very much enjoyed reading about the history of the restaurant and it's interesting set-up as a collaborative company, this didn't become a favorite cookbook of mine. I found a few recipes that I'm eager to try out, but the whole thing seemed more geared towards beginner chefs and fans of the restaurant rather than somebody who's genuinely interested in finding new and interesting combinations of ingredients. But they did do a good job in being geared towards that certain audience. Ideas and directions were described in-depth, with a generous glossary of particular foods and instructions on how to cook things like tofu in the back of the book. I appreciated the hard work that obviously went into this cookbook, but those things just weren't really what I was looking for. Perhaps a different Moosewood cookbook (I've heard there are several) would've been better suited for me, I don't know.
This cookbook includes a lot of recipes for things like salad dressings, sauces, and desserts, which isn't really what I'm personally interested in. And a generous amount of things like "corn chowder," for which I've seen a million and a half tired, old recipes for.Read more ›
