Moosewood Cookbook 40th edition by Mollie Katzen
The Moosewood Cookbook has inspired generations to cook simple, healthy, and seasonal food. A classic listed as one of the top ten best-selling cookbooks of all time by the New York Times, this 40th anniversary edition of Mollie Katzen's seminal book will be a treasured addition to the cookbook libraries of fans young and old.
In 1974, Mollie Katzen hand-wrote, illustrated, and locally published a spiral-bound notebook of recipes for vegetarian dishes inspired by those she and fellow cooks served at their small restaurant co-op in Ithaca, NY. Several iterations and millions of copies later, the Moosewood Cookbook has become one of the most influential and beloved cookbooks of all time—listed by the New York Times as one of the best-selling cookbooks in history, inducted into the James Beard Award Cookbook Hall of Fame, and coined a Cookbook Classic by the International Association of Culinary Professionals. Mollie’s Moosewood Cookbook has inspired generations to fall in love with plant-based home cooking, and, on the fortieth anniversary of that initial booklet, continues to be a seminal, timely, and wholly personal work. With a new introduction by Mollie, this commemorative edition will be a cornerstone for any cookbook collection that long-time fans and those just discovering Moosewood will treasure.
This is a fantastic cookbook that is both beautifully illustrated and contains excellent recipes of all types that I am anxious to continue to explore. My mother has one of the original cookbooks, and I was happy to share this 40th edition version with her. There a good number of additional recipes that are included in this edition, and the recipes themselves are simplified and reorganized to make for easier reading and for following the directions. We made brownies from this cookbook that were absolutely to die for, as well as some other delicious breads, cakes, and salads. I look forward to trying more recipes from this cookbook in the near future. Would highly recommend this cookbook to vegetarians and meat lovers alike as there are some truly delicious recipes of all types to try in this book!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
