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.

So, I tried them, and now I'm HOOKED! Sopa de Lima is great food for during halftime of basketball and football games -- and I later found out I can make it fast and easy with some simple substitutions (hint: use a jar of salsa instead of a bunch of other ingredients). Saffron Butterflies is SMOOOOOOOTH and good -- with or without some meatballs thrown in. These two were so good I've had to try others and now "Rumpledethumps" (silly name, but GREAT DISH) is a personal favorite -- I just use it as a side dish along with a London Broil. Okay, so I'm a carnivore -- these recipes are great standing alone, and most of them work well with meat added or on the side.
More than just the great recipes, this book is great for the stories, too. I never would have thought cookbooks make good reading, even when I'm not cooking, but this one is.
The focus is on cuisine from around the world, with each section including an interesting precursor to the region, detailing a little history of the area/writer/recipes.
The recipes offer a really good variety of international cuisine (including numerous fish dishes for the "pesco-vegetarians" amongst us). I was thrilled to also find a British section included, since this is an area of the world that gets so often slammed for it's cuisine. (The Shepherd's Pie recipe is a must!)
It's a rare cookery book indeed in which all the recipes you try turn out well - but this is certainly one of them. This has now become my staple recipe book, and comes thoroughly recommended.

Why are folks going on about the alarming trend of fish recipes in vegetarian cookbooks? This book could benefit from a few more fish recipes, I think. Read morePublished on Aug. 26 2002
