Description
Since its opening in 1973, Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, New York, has been synonymous with creative cuisine with a healthful, vegetarian emphasis.
Each Sunday at Moosewood Restaurant, diners experience a new ethnic or regional cuisine, sometimes exotic, sometimes familiar. From the highlands and grasslands of Africa to the lush forests of Eastern Europe, from the sun-drenched hills of Provence to the mountains of South America, the inventive cooks have drawn inspiration for these delicious adaptations of traditional recipes.
Including a section on cross-cultural menu planning as well as an extensive guide to ingredients, techniques, and equipment, "Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant" offers a taste for every palate.
Moosewood Restaurant is run by a group of eighteen people who rotate through the jobs necessary to make a restaurant work. They plan menus, set long-term goals, and wash pots.
Moosewood Restaurant contributes 1% of its profits from the sale of this book to the Eritrean Relief Fund, which provides food and humanitarian assistance to the Eritrean people.
Moosewood Restaurant supports 1% For Peace, an organization working to persuade the government to redirect 1% of the Defense Department budget towards programs that create and maintain peace in positive ways.



About the Author
MOOSEWOOD RESTAURANT is owned and managed by a group of 20 people who collectively run the restaurant and write the cookbooks. Everyone who works at the restaurant brings to it a spirit of friendship and creativity, and it is in this setting that ideas are cultivated, heritages are shared, and soups are stirred. The collective has published four previous cookbooks, including Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant and the James Beard Award-winning Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home (Best Vegetarian Cookbook, 1995).

The Moosewood Collective has nineteen members who share responsibilities and participate in the various jobs necessary to run what has grown from a very small natural foods restaurant to a larger and more diversified company. Most members of the Collective have worked together for at least 15 years, and some have worked for the restaurant since it was founded in 1973. The Moosewood Collective is the recipient of three James Beard Awards and numerous nominations. "Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health" is its twelfth book.
