This week, Food and Wine interviewed Isa Chandra Moskowitz, famed author of myriad vegan cookbooks (including the classic Vegan with a Vengeance) regarding the current state of plant-based diets. The magazine asked why now is a good time to expand her brand and what she found exciting about veganism today. Moskowitz stated, “Vegan cuisine is getting taken seriously as a cuisine,” adding that, “we’re at a point now when people aren’t asking, ‘How could you live without [meat]?’ Once people experience cashew cream and lentils as meat, they’re like, ‘How did I ever live without this?’” Moskowitz is also the owner of Modern Love, a vegan restaurant in Omaha, NE, and plans to open a second location in Brooklyn next year. The author and restaurateur’s new Brooklyn venture will “play around more with what Brooklynites are used to eating,” and will include a Jewish twist to reflect the heritage of Moskowitz and her investment partners.
