Moosewood Restaurant, of Ithaca, NY, has a great series of cookbooks out that are absolutely my favorites. Although they include seafood, they are planning a veg*n cookbook.

I think our family has every one, and we are planning a trip to upstate NY (where my mom grew up) so hopefully we'll be able to go there.

Does anybody else like this stuff, or am i completely WEIRD?!?

I grew up in Ithaca, went to Cornell, and was a regular at Moosewood. Keeping in mind that I was omni at the time, but I remember this GREAT salad. It had no lettuce and that's why I liked it.

I remember when Moosewood opened, which was about 30 years ago. It is situated downtown, near the Ithaca Commons, which is a outdoor mall.

I am going to Ithaca in the middle of August for a few days. I am sure that I will go to Moosewood.

There used to be another great veggie restaurant in Collegetown (and area near Cornell in Ithaca) called Cabbagetown Cafe. I ate there a lot because it was on my way home to my apt my 3rd year. I think that it must not be there anymore because there is no listing for it.

You must, as I have posted elsewhere before, go to the Ithaca Farmers Market. It is just wonderful and has tons of veg*n friendly stuff:

There are so many things to do in that area. We always do some winery tastings. I know of no other place in the country where it is more fun to taste wine. The wineries are easy to find (usually in a straight line a couple miles apart), have GREAT views of the lakes, and taste great. There are few wineries that have consistently stood out over the years, and if you are interested I can post some of them here.

Truthfully, if I were to choose between Moosewood and the Farmer's market, I would definitely choose the Farmer's Market. I went to Moosewood about 3 or 4 years ago, and I remember thinking that it wasn't as good as I remember when I lived there.

i'm obsessed with moosewood. i almost went to the restaurant on a bike trip back when i was... 13 i think. we almost went in there to eat but it was too crowded! i was a vegetarian then but my diet consisted of health is wealth chicken free nuggets, cascadian farms tater tots, bagels, and cereal. so even if i did go there i wouldn't enjoy is as much as i would now.

i keep telling my mom i want to go to the actual restaurant for my graduation present!


mollie katzen is amazing. i love her recipes. you can adapt the vegetarian ones into vegan ones, too, kind of.
