Berkeley local Mollie Katzen is a pioneer in the farm-to-table movement. With years of experience in the garden and the kitchen, and with over 6 million books in print, the author of the Moosewood Cookbook helped bring the vegetarian palate to the American dinner plate. Katzen’s most recent book, The Heart of the Plate, offers inventive vegetarian fare for the new generation. Her early recipes packed with rich ingredients like butter, cheese and sour cream have been replaced with healthier and tastier alternatives; learn some of Katzen’s techniques when she talks about her new book on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Toby’s Feed Barn. 11250 Hwy. 1, Pt.
