When the 15th anniversary edition came out, I bought it so I could have a nice, not-falling-apart copy. Even though the cover stated "New Revised Edition". Unfortunately, the recipes had been edited, mostly to remove fat. Some recipes were gone altogether (e.g. Pakora and Tempura Vegetables). Others had eggs and cheese completely or partially replaced by other extra flavors; "Cheese Beans" became "Tart and Tangy Baked Beans", with cheese optional, an extra apple, plus molasses and cider vinegar. I tried both and liked the first much, much better, as with other recipe edits.
I bought this 40th anniversary edition for the same reason I bought the 15th. Unfortunately, there was no warning on the cover that I was getting the revised recipes. This isn't the 40th anniversary edition of the original Moosewood Cookbook, it's the 25th anniversary edition of the 15th anniversary edition.
I wish I could get a new copy of the original book.
This is a great book for those who are just starting out, or those who are just learning to cook. Being gluten free, this book has come in very handy for me as most of the recipes are naturally gluten free or can be easily made that way. The food combinations are sometimes new for me, but keeping an open mind, and keeping what I like in mind, I've found great success with many recipes in the book. Basic cheese sauces and soups, casseroles, and salads are good staples to have up your sleeve. You can build on these recipes and that's what makes it so good for the beginners or those looking to branch out in their cooking.
After seeing this book on so many friend's bookshelves over the years, I finally bought a copy. And it is lovely. Many of the recipes have become standards at my house, and others are easily adapted (custard pie, anyone?). I couldn't be more pleased with a cookbook - and I'm a carnivore!
Great recipes, and love the handmade look (handwritten text, hand drawn illustrations).
