"It's Moosewood's world. We're just eating in it." --Christine Muhlke, The New York Times
The creators of America's beloved natural foods restaurant, Moosewood, are back with The Moosewood Restaurant Table, their new book with over 250 brand new, never-before-published recipes.
With the restaurant now in its fifth decade, the Moosewood chefs continue to remain faithful to the farm-to-table philosophy that has governed the restaurant since its founding, while also keeping an eye on today's gastro-trends. As they say "We've gotten to know our customers and readers pretty well... their curiosity and culinary IQ have grown exponentially...We've been on some adventures developing this book..." Indeed, they have, working with some less common fruits and vegetables that you might find in your CSA, like Romanesco broccoli and watermelon radishes. They've begun cooking with a wider variety of grains like freekeh and millet. All this experimentation has led them to some great new recipes!
Of course, a Moosewood cookbook wouldn't be complete without desserts like Turkish Coffee Brownies, Orange Pistachio Cornmeal Cake or Cherry Tomato Upside Down Cake to mention just a few. Including a healthy number of both vegan and gluten-free recipes, The Moosewood Restaurant Table is the next classic from the restaurant that revolutionized natural eating in the US.
Nancy Lazarus has been a Moosewood cook and co-owner of the restaurant since 1978. Among many other tasks, small and large, she has cooked, waited tables, bussed, washed pots, kept the books and done payroll, chaired meetings, and shampooed the carpet. Nancy is a co-author of the fourteen Moosewood Collective cookbooks. She develops new recipes, rewrites and edits text and prepares the manuscripts, and manages the work of the cookbook author collectives.
