Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Teany, the quirky restaurant located in New York City's Lower East Side and owned by musician Moby and his ex-girlfriend, is known for serving delicious vegetarian food and over 100 flavors of tea. Fortunately, this highly entertaining book is much more than just a behind-the-scenes look at the eatery. Like the offbeat Teany, it is an exercise in eccentricity. Filled with everything from creative meat-free recipes (both for food and beauty aids) to a list of 23 things that are preferable to shrubbery, this scrapbook is both useful and absurdly hilarious. It opens by relaying a fake history of Teany, then captures the eclectic mood of the restaurant with a bizarre collection of anecdotes, cartoons, hangover cures, random customer interviews and song playlists. An abundance of information about the joys of tea and vegetarian eating, along with plenty of useless but amusing tidbits ("2/3 of Teany customers would rather go back in time than go to the moon!") round out this witty book, which will motivate readers who have never been to the trendy café to visit and join in the fun.

teany ranks as one of my all-time favorite places to go when I'm in NYC. The food and tea are fabulous, the music and overall atmosphere brighten up even the darkest January day, and the staff is just awesome. So, I had to buy this book the second I spotted it, and I wasn't disappointed.

All their best recipes are included (finally I know what goes in a raspberry lime ricky!), along with fun behind-the-scenes stories and inspired ideas for using tea and organic ingredients to improve your life. If you've ever been to teany, you'll definitely enjoy this book, and if you haven't, it'll make you want to go there.

I'm a bit biased because I've always been a Moby fan. I believe, though, that anyone who buys this book will enjoy it. Moby has a great sense of humor and it really comes through in this book. From hangover cures to general ramblings about everyday life, there's something for everyone.

As a tea enthusiast, I thought that I knew as much as you could know about the stuff. Wrong! I learned a great deal about different kinds of tea and how you should prepare them. There's also some info on how to use tea/tea bags as remedies for different ailments.

The recipies are great. The Cashew Nut Butter sandwich is tasty and Moby's mom has a good burrito recipie in the book as well. I'm not a vegetarian and I liked the way that it wasn't "shoved" down your throat (as some of my friends have done). There were also hints on how to change some of the recipies to suit your meat loving friends.

If you buy this looking for a vegetarian/vegan cookbook, you may be disappointed since the book isn't exactly filled with recipes. If you're looking for something that has to do with Moby's music, then you might as well buy his albums. But if you are looking for a light-hearted coffee (tea) table book that is quirky and also functional (lots of uses for tea other than drinking), this is it. Some parts make you laugh, some photos are pretty, several recipes look mouth-watering. So, I'm not quite certain where I should keep this book in my house (kitchen? livingroom?), but it is delightful and a nice gift item for friends.

If you are stuck for something to give someone in your life who might be vegetarian/vegan, tea-totaler or just enjoys collecting unique cookbooks, look no further. Written by DJ Moby and the manager of his restarant, "Teany", this book shares insights about living an eco-friendly life with some tasty receipes. I made several of the them; they were not complicated or expensive and turned out great.

Format: Paperback
Although there aren't a ton of recipes, this book has a lot of heart. The recipes, though, -- especially the Raspberry lime ricky and cashew butter sandwiches-- are amazing but very simple, using a lot of everyday ingredients. Perfect for a romantic dinner or summer lunch with friends. The recipes span from cosmetic facials using tea and other natural ingredients, to cold drinks, to hot herbal infusions, to meal ideas. The little cartoon drawings a la Moby, suggested music playlists, and anecdotes along the way make this a book I love to read cozy near a bay window-- not just a cookbook you read standing up in the kitchen with the ingredients sitting before you. Many of the recipes have a loose, improvisational feel to them, which makes it feel like you can incorporate them into your life, not just for the rare fancy smancy dinner party-- although many of this recipes would totally impress dinner guests too.

Eclectic presentation of information, carefully produced photos, and lots of help to make this not just another cook book.
