Since its opening in 1973, Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, New York, has been synonymous with creative cuisine with a healthful, vegetarian emphasis. Each Sunday at Moosewood Restaurant, diners experience a new ethnic or regional cuisine, sometimes exotic, sometimes familiar. From the highlands and grasslands of Africa to the lush forests of Eastern Europe, from the sun-drenched hills of Provence to the mountains of South America, the inventive cooks have drawn inspiration for these delicious adaptations of traditional recipes. Including a section on cross-cultural menu planning as well as an extensive guide to ingredients, techniques, and equipment, Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant offers a taste for every palate. Moosewood Restaurant is run by a group of eighteen people who rotate through the jobs necessary to make a restaurant work. They plan menus, set long-term goals, and wash pots. Moosewood Restaurant contributes 1% of its profits from the sale of this book to the Eritrean Relief Fund, which provides food and humanitarian assistance to the Eritrean people. Moosewood Restaurant supports 1% For Peace, an organization working to persuade the government to redirect 1% of the Defense Department budget towards programs that create and maintain peace in positive ways.… (more)

    Biker Billy Cooks With Fire: Robust Recipes from America's Most Outrageous Television Chef by Bill Hufnagle (ehines)
    ehines: Billy is a vegetarian. I'm not at all familiar with his TV persona, but in the book he comes off as an unpretentious lover of assertive flavors and good ingredients. The recipes are straightforward and good eatin'.

Nice variety of fancy vegetarian recipes. ( )

This cookbook is amazing! There is so much cultural information here, it's a joy to read. The recipes I've tried so far are also delicious and easy to follow if labor intensive.

I made the Brown Bread from the Macedonian section - savory and delicious. I also made the Red Pottage from the British Isles section, which is also yummy if a mess to make with an immersion blender (they recommend a blender, so it's not their fault). I also made it a little easier on myself and did parts of this in the slow cooker - I think the whole thing could easily be done in the slow cooker if you sauteed the onions and celery before adding to the pot.

I am on my second copy of this book, having worn through one.

A great variety of good recipes from many different traditions. A great introduction to vegetarian-friendly cuisines from around the world. ( )

This book belongs right next to the Vegetarian Epicure books of Anna Thomas. This is a wonderful collection of recipes from around the world that you can serve anytime. Another culinary classic! ( )
