Cooking Up History: Mollie Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook

Cooking Up History showcases a guest chef and our resident food historian, Dr. Ashley Rose Young, preparing a recipe and talking about the history and traditions behind its ingredients, culinary techniques, and enjoyment. In 2019 we're focusing each month’s demonstration on a section of the museum’s exhibition FOOD: Transforming the American Table.

Our guest chef, Mollie Katzen, is the author of The Moosewood Cookbook (1974), one of the best-selling cookbooks of all time and an integral piece of work on vegetarianism, seasonal cooking, and conscious eating. A first edition of Katzen’s cookbook is on display in a section of the FOOD exhibition that explores how alternative communities produced new food-distribution systems in the 1960s and 1970s. Join us as we discuss this rich culinary history with an innovator of that movement.
