5.0 out of 5 stars One Of My Very Favourite Cookbooks!, 10 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant: Ethnic and Regional Recipes from the Cooks at the Legendary Restaurant (Cookery) (Paperback)
This is a spectacular collection of delicious vegetarian recipes from 18 different regions or ethnicities, so detailed it has separate chapters on Africa south of the Sahara and Northern Africa, and the Jewish chapter is split up into sections on Ashkenazi and Sephardic cuisine! There are also recipes here from Mexico, Eastern Europe, China, Japan, Finland, New England, and the Carribbean amongst others. I have owned this cookbook for years and many of the recipes here are old favourites of mine. I find that the Mexican Kettle Stew is especially good at winter parties, everybody seems to love it and it is easy to cook huge vats of it, and the Cranberry Tea Cake (from the New England chapter) is both delicious and absurdly easy to make. This is an enormous (734 pages) and almost alarmingly wide ranging book. I've never quite drummed up the courage to make a Cocola Salad (from the Southern United States chapter this is a jellied salad made with cola) for example, but it's nice to know that if I were required to, I have a recipe for it. This book also contains very useful chapters about the ingredients used in the recipes, conversion tables for American measures into metric, and a wonderful section called "What We Mean When We Say 'One Medium Onion'" where they explain how much one apple should be in both volume and weight measurements. A treasure of a book!
