Download and read online Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat Favorites in PDF and EPUB This is the low-fat book cooks who care about wholesome, vegetarian-inspired food have been waiting for. Each of the more than 280 recipes are as delicious and trustworthy as those in the Moosewood Collective's previous books, and vibrant flavors and generous portions are still a hallmark of every dish. Because the Collective's primary goal is always to make great tasting food they resisted the notion of doing a low-fat book until they were convinced they could make low-fat dishes as flavor-packed as their regular favorites. "We've mostly been interested in gourmet cuisine at Moosewood Restaurant, not deprivation diet food," say the authors. "So, it's a happy surprise that the dishes we created for this cookbook don't come off as merely healthful diet foods. The food is exciting, ethnically diverse, and satisfyingly delicious. Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites is as much a celebration of the pleasures of eating as it is about low-fat cooking." In Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites the Collective emphasizes a few changes in basic cooking techniques to apply to everyday recipes and they offer tips and ideas for sustaining a low-fat lifestyle. They bake rather than fry, replace high-fat ingredients with healthy substitutes (no artificial ingredients allowed!), and use butter and oil very moderately. What is lost in fat is gained in bold, intense flavors. "When fashioning low-fat recipes, taking a nip here, a tuck there, we sometimes need to add a little embroidery, an embellishment such as extra herbs, spices, fruit or vegetable purée, vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes, dried mushrooms, miso, soy sauce, or garlic," explain the cooks at Moosewood Restaurant. "Our gingerbread gets extra flavor and moisture from chunks of pear rather than from butter and egg yolks. Two small calamata olives enliven the Caesar Salad Dressing. A little sauerkraut adds interest to an Italian mushroom stew." Fat will not be missed in mouthwatering recipes like Guacamole with Asparagus, Chinese Orzo Vegetable Salad, Spring Vegetable Paella, Indian Potato Pancakes, and Creamy Dairyless Rice Pudding. Along with those creative dishes, one of the most appealing parts of Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites is finding low-fat variations on familiar favorites such as Macaroni and Cheese, Shephard's Pie, and Dark Chocolate Pudding. An added bonus is that the Moosewood Collective has made sure that the ingredients used in the recipes throughout the book are very accessible--easily found in most well-stocked supermarkets. In the nutritional, glossary, and guide sections of Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites the Collective gives explanations of nutritional terms, instructions for how to glean the information you need from nutrition labels, a brief overview of vitamins and minerals, and guides to ingredients and cooking techniques. These three important sections, combined with the deliciously appetizing recipes, are a wealth of encouragement for low-fat eating and living a healthy lifestyle. The fourteen chapters range from savory soups and main course salads to creative side dishes and aromatic Mediterranean and Asian-inspired dishes. With chapters which range from healthy breakfasts and lunch foods to a collection of fish recipes and more than twenty truly delectable desserts, Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites is sure to set the kitchen standard not only for health-conscious cooks, but also for those who have come to rely on the Moosewood Collective's easy, earthy approach to cooking.

Download and read online The Moosewood Restaurant Cooks for a Crowd in PDF and EPUB Since 1973, Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, New York, has been famous for its innovative vegetarian cooking. Throughout the years, the Moosewood collective has been at the forefront of a movement that has had a profound impact on the American diet. Gone are the days when the phrase "I don't eat meat" brought a grimace from host or hostess and quizzical stares from fellow guests--vegetarian cooking is no longer a novelty. Vegetarian dishes are now a must at large social gatherings and catered events, and often a mainstay of menus at restaurants and institutions. Vegetarian cooks are increasingly called upon to produce favorite vegetarian fare in quantity. But the cooks at Moosewood Restaurant know that you can't always expand a recipe simply by multiplying the amount of each ingredient by six. Moosewood Restaurant Cooks for a Crowd is the first vegetarian cookbook and menu-planning guide designed exclusively for quantity cooking. Each of its more than 250 recipes has been prepared in the Moosewood kitchen and savored in the Moosewood dining room. Whether you're entertaining in your home, planning a catered affair, or developing the menu for a large-scale restaurant, this groundbreaking cookbook will inspire anyone who enjoys cooking imaginative vegetarian meals for a crowd.# The past two decades have been marked by a steady and rapid increase in the demand for vegetarian and ethnic cuisine--in quantity--at parties, at catered events, and in restaurants of all descriptions. Responding to this demand has been particularly difficult--most vegetarian dishes are usually prepared in small quantities, ingredients can be hard to find, and the nutritional content of vegetarian dishes is quite different from that of conventional fare. After two decades of dedicated exploration, Moosewood Restaurant, in its singular fashion, has created a mostly vegetarian cookbook for large groups. This book combines Moosewood's legendary cuisine with the dietary and practical considerations important to foodservice professionals. Now you can create vegetarian meals in quantity, featuring restaurant-quality dishes that have already been proven to satisfy the most discriminating vegetarian palates. Many of the more than 250 recipes that fill these pages are Moosewood's most famous and most requested dishes. These include hearty stews, savory pastries, festive holiday fare, pasta dishes, and main-dish salads. Each dish is a delight in color, texture, and flavor, and all of the recipes have been prepared in quantity in the Moosewood kitchen. This book speaks directly to cooks--both amateur and professional--regardless of their familiarity with vegetarian cooking. The straightforward recipes are easy to follow, use simple procedures and equipment, and each one is accompanied by a comprehensive nutritional analysis. The book provides a number of suggestions for enhancing the flavor of reduced-fat meals, and the Guide to Ingredients is a valuable reference tool for anyone who wants to learn more about the basics of vegetarian and ethnic cuisine. This outstanding cookbook also provides Eight pages of color photos A menu planning section that discusses the quality and availability of ingredients you will need to create seasonal and ethnic menus Measurements of ingredients listed in both weight and volume A vegetarian pyramid that pairs vegetarian meals with nutritional needs A list of nondairy and vegetarian recipes

Download and read online The Pleasures of Cooking for One in PDF and EPUB From the legendary editor of some of the world’s greatest cooks—including Julia Child and James Beard—a passionate and practical book about the joys of cooking for one. Here, in convincing fashion, Judith Jones demonstrates that cooking for yourself presents unparalleled possibilities for both pleasure and experimentation: you can utilize whatever ingredients appeal, using farmers’ markets and specialty shops to enrich your palate and improve your health; you can feel free to fail, since a meal for one doesn’t have to be perfect; and you can use leftovers to innovate—in the course of a week, the remains of beef bourguignon might be reimagined as a ragù, pork tenderloin may become a stir-fry, a cup or two of wild rice produces both a refreshing pilaf and a rich pancake, and red snapper can be reinvented as a summery salad. It’s a fulfilling and immensely economical process, one perfectly suited for our times—although, as Jones points out, cooking for one also means we can occasionally indulge ourselves in a favorite treat. Throughout, Jones is both our instructor and our mentor, suggesting basic recipes—such as tomato sauce, preserved lemons, pesto, and homemade stock—that all cooks should have on hand; teaching us how to improvise using an ingenious strategy of building meals through the week; and supplying us with a lifetime’s worth of tips and shortcuts. From Child’s advice for buying fresh meat to Beard’s challenge to beginning crêpe-makers and Lidia Bastianich’s tips for cooking perfectly sauced pasta, Jones’s book presents a wealth of acquired knowledge from our finest cooks. The Pleasures of Cooking for One is a vibrant, wise celebration of food and enjoying our own company from one of our most treasured cooking experts. From the Hardcover edition.
