Most important books: Mollie Katzen

Mollie Katzen is listed by the New York Times as one of the best-selling cookbook authors of all time. A 2007 inductee into the prestigious James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame, and largely credited with moving healthful vegetarian food from the "fringe" to the center of the American dinner plate, Ms. Katzen has been named by Health Magazine as one of "The Five Women Who Changed the Way We Eat." Her latest book is The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without.

She told Newsweek about her five most important books.

One title to make the list:

Honey From a Weed by Patience Gray.

Autobiography, travelogue and recipe collection, all woven together. It transports like a novel.
Read about all five titles on Katzen's list.
