Praise For Moosewood Restaurant Favorites

“When seeking a marker of the changes in the cookbook market over the last 40 years, one need look no further than Ithaca, New York.” – Publishers Weekly

“Well-done, Moosewood! You have become a beloved part of American cultural history and morphed into a truly national institution that most of us know through the cookbooks that have emerged. One after the other, those enticing combinations of delicious recipes and lively prose have borne witness to Moosewood’s most compelling idea: “community” - that harmonious feeling among a group of people that takes place in the kitchen and at the table as we share a commitment to good food and being together. Moosewood Restaurant Favorites will introduce a new generation to a beloved institution and call up happy memories of meals and recipes over the years.”--Nancy Harmon Jenkins, author of The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, The Essential Mediterranean and many others

“As any experienced cook knows, extracting the savor of vegetables, completely without meat, presents its own special difficulties. Fortunately, the Moosewood collective has succeeded in meeting those challenges and produced a fine book of direct and simple recipes, each with its own savory twists. This thorough book will delight vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike and will become a cornerstone in any cook’s library.  In short, Moosewood has elevated meatless cooking to the level of great cuisine and artfully showcases vegetarian cooking at its finest.”--James Peterson, author of 15 cookbooks and winner of 7 James Beard Awards
