Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Vegan Brunch
Moskowitz drew a devoted crowd of fans to Moo Shoes in Manhattan this evening. The menu featured lots of delectable wonders from Vegan Brunch, including Bakery-Style Berry Muffins, Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, Herbed Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits, Smoked Almond Gravy, Pink Grapefruit Mimosas, Italian Feast Sausages (which were out of this world!), and various cream cheeses with bagels.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention some kind of Jewish connection, especially since Moskowitz wrote a Passover guest post for heebnvegan in 2007. In the following excerpt from Vegan Brunch, Moskowitz amusingly introduces her Matzoh Brie recipe:
If you're Jewish or a New Yorker at all, you'll be really happy to have a workable vegan matzoh brie recipe. Maybe your mouth is already watering at the thought of the softened matzoh, lightly fried and spiked with just a few fried onions. If you aren't Jewish or a New Yorker, I am going to be honest and say that sometimes I have a really hard time explaining Jewish food in a way that makes it sound appealing to non-Jews. Often I read things on the Internet that say some of my recipes are "weird" and "ethnic." I'll just invite you skeptics to loosen up and try this—it is classic Jewish comfort food!Vegan Brunch is on sale now. Moskowitz will be serving food from Vegan Brunch at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary's June Jamboree on June 13.
