The Moosewood Cookbook
Ten Speed Press (2014)
The Moosewood Cookbook is the urtext of 1970s hippie cuisine. Mollie Katzen was a co-founder of the collective that owned and ran the eponymous restaurant in Ithaca, New York. Her 1974 book codified not just the fare served there but an entire countercultural ethos: conscious, curious, and generous. Hand-lettered, with whimsical but keenly observed illustrations, this humble, self-published volume has taught generations how to cook nourishing vegetarian food informed by traditions from around the world. The Moosewood Cookbook shows no signs of slowing down.
