In this major new cookbook, the beloved author and illustrator of the classic "Moosewood Cookbook" (one of the top ten best-selling cookbooks of all time) presents a sumptuously illustrated collection of over 200 irresistible and surprising recipes. This long-awaited and beautiful new work by one of America's favorite cookbook writers is the companion volume to the new 26-part public television series, "Mollie Katzen's Cooking Show: Vegetable Heaven."

This book also features unusual pasta recipes, condiments, and a wonderful assortment of desserts like Cherry Upside-Down Gingerbread and Pineapple Pomegranita. Gracing the pages are over 50 of Katzen's luminous paintings, richly evocative of the pleasures of cooking and eating.
