I have never written a review before, but this book warrants one. I’ve been a loyal Moosewood fan for a decade or so, and while I am not a vegetarian, I was looking for ways to include more meatless meals into our family’s routine. I appreciate that the recipes typically include a shorter list of ingredients and uncomplicated directions. The dishes I’ve made from here are flavorful, relatively quick, and have been a big hit with our family. Plus, I love the variety of produce and lack of meat substitutes. Huge win in our home.
I have been a fan of Moosewood cookbooks from the very beginning. My children were raised with recipes from Enchanted Broccoli Forest and Moosewood. I never had a recipe fail and I love the food included in the cookbooks. Now there is a compilation of 250 most-requested recipes from their restaurant in upstate New York. (I once tried to get into their restaurant and there were no reservations taken. You had to wait on line and the last people to get in were the ones right before me, so I have never gotten to eat there). This book comes out for their fortieth anniversary and contains scrumptious recipes including appetizers, dips and spreads, soups, sandwiches, burgers, main dish salads, curries and stew, beans, frittatas and pies, casseroles, stuffed vegetables, wraps, rolls, strudels, tofu, pasta, fish, side salads, sides, side grains, salad dressings, condiments and salsas, sauces and gravies, and desserts. Many of the recipes are familiar and much-loved by me. Their carrot cake is mouth-watering as is their banana cake with cream cheese frosting. Their main courses are fantastic and, except for fish, the book is vegetarian. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of Moosewood and for those new to this wonderful series of cookbooks as well. They are all a joy to cook from and I will get started with this newest one tonight.
This is probably my favorite cookbook I own. I’ve never made a bad recipe out of it and I love how versatile the recipes are too. All throughout the book there are suggestions on how to change the recipe up by changing an ingredient or the method of cooking, which is great if you’re a person who tries to cook locally and seasonally, but maybe isn’t so great at knowing what would actually taste good (i.e. me). The layout of the book is really beautiful and the pictures will make you want to get in the kitchen. I actually would rate this a 4.5 star book though, because I hate the cover that much! I like that the book is hardcover, but they chose that weird puffy covering that makes the book feel bulkier and I wish it was just a regular hardcover binding. I’m really getting picky though with my criticism. You’ll definitely want these recipes for your kitchen!
