Since 1973 Moosewood Restaurant, in Ithaca, New York, has been famous for its innovative vegetarian cooking. Throughout the years, the restaurant has been at the forefront of a movement that has had a profound impact on the American diet. Gone are the days when the phrase "I don't eat meat" brought a grimace from host or hostess and quizzical stares from fellow guests--vegetarian cooking is no longer a novelty.
Vegetarian dishes are now a must at large social gatherings and catered events, and often a mainstay of menus at restaurants and institutions. Vegetarian cooks are increasingly called upon to produce favorite vegetarian fare in quantity. But the cooks at Moosewood Restaurant know that you can't always expand a recipe simply by multiplying the amount of each ingredient by six.
Moosewood Restaurant Cooks for a Crowd is the first vegetarian cookbook and menu-planning guide designed exclusively for quantity cooking. Each of its 250 recipes has been prepared in the Moosewood kitchen and savored in the Moosewood dining room.
Whether you're entertaining in your home, planning a catered affair, or developing the menu for a large-scale restaurant, this groundbreaking cookbook will inspire anyone who enjoys cooking imaginative vegetarian meals for a crowd.
