From the author of Wings of Life!
Featured in Wegmans stores . . .
Since operating her fabulously popular Cabbagetown
Café in Ithaca, New York, Julie has built up an im-
pressive resumé: head chef at the Omega Institute,
private chef for celebrities too cool to name, Vegetarian
Development chef for Wegmans Food Stores, featured
teacher at Wegmans School of Culinary Arts, innovative
vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic meal program development,
consultant for schools, retreat centers, and restaurants
looking to enhance their vegetarian offerings—the list
goes on and on.
And still she’s a down-home cook who loves to spend
hours in the kitchen. Her recipes delight mainstream
palates and dedicated vegetarians alike.
This collection of exciting new recipes and tried-and-
true vegetarian classics abounds with delicious, healthful,
easy-to-prepare dishes: appetizers, soups, breads, salads
& dressings, breakfast treats, entrees, and desserts. All
are easy to follow, delicious, and (shhhh . . . ) very
New recipes like Salsa Fresca, Pad Thai, Vietnamese
Pasta Salad, Toasted-Corn Polenta, and New Mexico Red
Chile Enchiladas resonate vibrantly with our twenty-first
century palate. Many are loaded with lively, trendy ingre-
dients—fresh cilantro, esoteric chile peppers, rice noodles,
peanut sauce, and more.
Julie has also selected the favorite classics from her
popular early books, Wings of Life and Cabbagetown
Cafe Cookbook. Most of these she has updated for 2012
and made even better from years of testing and refine-
ment in home and professional kitchens throughout
North America (often with non-dairy, low fat, no-cholesterol
vegan options). Some were just too good to change at all,
and they're here
An extra treat: the book has a special binding that lets it
lay flat open while you use it!
Praise for Julie
“I first met Julie Jordan (and her cooking) over twenty-five years ago, and I can testify that her exuberance and culinary integrity have not wavered since that time. When it comes to a creative, consistent, healthful approach to whole foods cooking, Julie, as ever, walks the talk. Forget walking, she runs!” —Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook and Vegetable Heaven, host of public television's Mollie Katzen's Cooking Show
“Julie Jordan is no ordinary cook. She is a connoisseur of natural foods." —Detroit Free Press
“Julie views food as an endlessly expressive medium and considers cooking an infinite adventure. Join her on this latest leg of her tantalizing culinary journey, and you won't be disappointed!” —Susan Jane Cheney, author of Stir Crazy! and Breadtime
