5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite cookbooks, 5 Oct 2012
This review is from: The New Moosewood Cookbook (Mollie Katzen's Classic Cooking) (Paperback)
Always the first to be consulted out of my collection of twenty or so cookbooks. As we gradually moved away from meat, Mollie's recipes gave structure and inspiration to my culinary experiments and every recipe I tried has been a great success. It's difficult to explain the appeal of this book but it is a combination of accessible ingredients, clear instructions, lots of versatility and a total lack of pretension. Many of these dishes would impress any guest but the essence of the book is to provide tasty, healthy nutritional solutions for everyday use without any preachy meat-bashing rhetoric.

The hand-written notes and line drawings result in a homey, easy-going reference book which is easy to prop open on the counter and has fully earned, in my kitchen, its many stains and dog-eared pages. I particularly love the low-fat, low-sugar approach to desserts and creative ways to make fruit interesting and delicious. As an experienced and sometimes overly-ambitious cook, I appreciate the emphasis on describing simple methods and techniques which can be applied to whatever you happen to have on hand, rather than stuffing the book with hundreds of near-identical recipes where the only difference is the main ingredient. This cookbook has also aged very well and is just as useful now as when it heralded a mini-revolution in vegetarian cooking.
