Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant
Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant: Ethnic and Regional Recipes from the Cooks at the | Moosewood Collective
5 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
Since its opening in 1973, Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, New York, has been synonymous with creative cuisine with a healthful, vegetarian emphasis. Each Sunday at Moosewood Restaurant, diners experience a new ethnic or regional cuisine, sometimes exotic, sometimes familiar. From the highlands and grasslands of Africa to the lush forests of Eastern Europe, from the sun-drenched hills of Provence to the mountains of South America, the inventive cooks have drawn inspiration for these delicious adaptations of traditional recipes. Including a section on cross-cultural menu planning as well as an extensive guide to ingredients, techniques, and equipment, Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant offers a taste for every palate. Moosewood Restaurant is run by a group of 18 people who rotate through the jobs necessary to make a restaurant work. They plan menus, set long-term goals, and wash pots. Moosewood Restaurant contributes 1 percent of its profits from the sale of this book to the Eritrean Relief Fund, which provides food and humanitarian assistance to the Eritrean people. Moosewood Restaurant supports 1% For Peace, an organization working to persuade the government to redirect 1 percent of the Defense Department budget towards programs that create and maintain peace in positive ways.

Well @Lynnsoprano my attempt at Ukrainian baking, as inspired by our #buddyread of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, did not result in pretty rogaliki 😂. I think it was just too warm today and the dough was supposed to stay chilled. Still tasty, even if I probably won‘t make it again. Rogaliki means “little horns” and I‘m trying to imitate that devilish Valentina 😂😈. Recipe from tagged cookbook; can find online w/ various fillings.

Lynnsoprano It looks wonderful to me! 2w
ValerieAndBooks @Lynnsoprano it looks like a “Pinterest fail” ?. But still good. I should have waited to make it. 85° today, warmer tomorrow, then temps will drop way down in the 60s. Also, looks like another name for it is rugelach. 2w
Lynnsoprano @ValerieAndBooks The thing I‘ve found is that there are a lot of similar dishes across Eastern Europe/Russia with different names. Stuffed cabbage rolls are galubtsi in Ukranian, but halupki in other countries. And it sounds as if you‘re as warm as we are! 2w

As much fun to read as it is to cook from! The stories each chef tells of their lives make the recipes special. If you haven‘t tried vegetarian cooking ( many recipes are vegan) then you should. The menu suggestions and info in the back and index are so helpful. I‘d never thought I could make chai that tasted so amazing at home!
