Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Polenta and greens take a new form in Mollie Katzen's tamale-like polenta packages. These small bites from her new cookbook, The Heart of the Plate, are surprisingly simple: make a pot of thick polenta laced with Anaheim chiles and sautéed onions, blanch a dozen chard or collard leaves, scoop, roll, and sauté.

Cook the Book: 'The Heart of the Plate'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Closed

The hummus, falafel, and vegetable curry recipes from The Moosewood Cookbook were staples in my parents' kitchen, and I carried my own copy around with me to every place I've lived. But the truth is, I don't cook from it much anymore. I still eat a lot of vegetarian meals, but I'm much more likely to through together a salad or stir-fry than I am to bake a cheesy quiche or fry chickpea fritters. Given the content of her new cookbook, The Heart of the Plate, Mollie Katzen sympathizes. More

For me, wasabi peas are an addictive substance. They satisfy my cravings for mouth-burning spice without the guilt of consuming handfuls of my other secret addiction: Andy Capp's Hot Fries (looks like a French fry, tastes like a chip!). Although... More

Growing up in an Asian American household, it was always strange for me when I went over to a friend's house for dinner and there would be butter all over the fluffy white rice. Rice to me was always simply... More

Cook the Book: 'The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without'

Adam Kuban Closed

This week's Cook the Book is an enabler for those of you who have made resolutions about eating healthy this year. It's Mollie Katzen's The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without, which came out somewhat recently—in October of last year. Katzen is renown for having made vegetarian cooking mainstream through her work at The Moosewood Café in Ithaca, New York, and via The Moosewood Cookbook, which was inducted into the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame last year. Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without is at once whimsical and serious. The whimsical, courtesy of sketches by Katzen and a typeface that looks handwritten.* And the serious, courtesy of Katzen's vegetable side dish recipes, of which there are just about 100—the... More
