  Publishers Weekly Review

The iconic Moosewood restaurant in Ithaca, N.Y., is known for its vegetarian cuisine and has been serving food for 40 years. Moosewood is owned by a collective of 19 passionate (mostly self-taught) cooks who run the restaurant and write cookbooks. The latest installment-their 13th collection (five have been nominated for James Beard awards, and two have won)-is a delightful "best of" collection of the restaurant's most popular dishes, as well as some recipes that haven't previously been published. The book is straightforward, with small international twists. Hearty, flavorful soups include classics like Moosewood's famous cream of spinach and French onion, as well as the more exotic West African Peanut Soup and Chilled Cantaloupe-Amaretto Soup. There are fun spins on the traditional burger: Curried Red Lentil Burgers, and Mushroom-Tofu-Pecan Burgers, along with seasonal salad plates. Other chapters include "Beans," "Frittatas and Pies," "Casseroles," "Stuffed Vegetables," "Tofu," "Pasta," and "Fish." There's something for everyone in this comprehensive and extremely useful cookbook, which stresses community living and eating meals with style. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
