Published: St. Martin's Griffin - September 26th, 2017

One of the cookbooks I use the most is Moosewood Restaurant Favorites, the Moosewood Collective’s last cookbook. The Moosewood Restaurant is located in Ithaca, NY and for over 40 years has fostered an approach to cooking that is based on natural and plant based ingredients. It is with great excitement that I have their new cookbook in hand. There are 250 brand-new recipes that demonstrate their creative ability with food combinations and their unique approach to international cuisines. A few of the recipes that I am looking forward to trying are Romanesco (a cauliflower/broccoli vegetable) with Green Salsa, Roasted Carrot Hummus, Chilled Pineapple-Mango Soup, Cashew-Crusted Chickpea Burgers, and Orange Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate Chips – just to name a few. ~Joan

I am not a student anymore, but I am a vegetarian and am always looking for flavorful, meat-free meals I can make on a budget. I am excited to make Warm Chickpea salad with Spiced Mushrooms; Spaghetti With Butternut Squash, Sage, and Pecorino; and
Cauliflower Masala. The book also has a great “Kitchen Know-How” section in the beginning for cooks (like me) who sometimes need some a little coaching, even on the basics. A great gift for a student, beginning cook, or anyone in need of some easy culinary inspiration. ~Margaret
