In Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant,
18 of the Moosewood Collective's chefs each contribute a chapter of vegetarian recipes from a different regional cuisine. Recipes are straightforward, and sources (and substitutes!) are given for hard-to-find ingredients. In addition to the Asian cuisine one might expect to find in an international vegetarian cookbook, there are some surprising and tasty options from Eastern Europe, Armenia, and the Middle East, as well as both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jewish recipes. The suggested menus encourage mixing; tomorrow's dinner could include Sopa de Ajo (garlic soup) from Chile, Spinach Nori Rolls from Japan, and Mango with Yogurt from India. The main dishes are so hearty that your guests may not notice they're meatless.
From Library Journal
The Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, New York has a national reputation, gained in large part from Mollie Katzen's collections of its recipes, The Moosewood Cookbook ( LJ 3/15/78) and The Enchanted Broc coli Forest ( LJ 10/15/82). This latest collection is a celebration of ethnic and regional fare, and here each of Moosewood's 18 cooks has contributed a chapter featuring a different cuisine. The resulting mix of mostly vegetarian dishes is an interesting one, from Croation Sour Soup to Rhode Island Cornmeal Bread. Destined to be widely popular, this is recommended for most collections.
