Cookbook Recommendation: Moosewood Cookbook
Moosewood Cookbook has helped foodie folk cook up simple, healthy, seasonal food for generations. Now as a 40th anniversary edition, Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood Cookbook is more charming than ever. Narrated charismatically, the pages are made up of whimsically hand-drawn notes that will make you nostalgic for your grandmother’s treasured recipe book. The 40th edition ushers in trendy vegetarian food that is vegetable-centered (straying from heavy breads and cheese). Think jicama, orange and fennel salad, brimming with clean, fresh flavors. There is a flatbread chapter, delineating flour tortillas, Indian chappatis and Chinese green onion pancakes. Main courses run the gamut of Bulgarian pepper casserole and calzones to samosas and ratatouille. For seriously simple dishes, don’t miss the tart and tangy baked beans, tostadas and zucchini crusted pizza. Bringing unpretentious food to your dinner table, Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood Cookbook, at $20, serves up inventive food that requires few ingredients and even less time. Moosewood Cookbook – it’s a classic.
