Mollie Katzen may be the godmother of vegetarian cuisine and one of the founding owners and chefs of Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, NY, not to mention one of the best-selling selling cookbook authors of all time, but she swears she never really intended to have a career in food. “It was never a goal at all,” she says.
