Synopsis

Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for Best Vegetarian Cookbook
Although many people think that cooking without meat means spending more time in the kitchen, the cooks at the world-renowned Moosewood Restaurant know this isn't so. Busy balancing home, work, and other commitments, they've been cooking for family and friends every day of the week for over twenty years. Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home is the result of that experience -- over 150 carefully honed and tested recipes calling for the best ingredients, accompanied by time-saving tips and planning suggestions, add up to a delicious whole-foods cuisine that is versatile and healthful and can be prepared with a minimum of effort.
This book contains dishes full of exciting flavors, sure to please every taste, from savory soups to substantial main-dish salads, from hearty stews to palate-teasing "small dishes." Sauces, salsas and dressings, and a collection of almost-instant desserts turn the simplest meal into an occasion.
Chapters on techniques and menu planning, lists of recipes for special needs, including nondairy and vegan fare and kid-pleasing food, as well as an in-depth guide to stocking the meatless pantry (including a list of recommended convenience foods), make Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home the essential companion to everyday cooking.
 

About Moosewood Collective

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).
