Here are your Wednesday morning book deals: The country's most beloved vegetarian restaurant in Ithaca, NY, Moosewood, will release its 14th cookbook next year. The deal was announced this morning for The New Moosewood Restaurant Table: 250 Brand New Recipes from the Natural Foods Restaurant. According to Publishers Marketplace (subscription required), the book will chart the restaurant's "new and always-evolving menus, cooking techniques and natural foods philosophy." St. Martin's Press is a longtime publisher of Moosewood's cookbooks.

The New York Times' staff food writer Melissa Clark (A Good Appetite) will write two new cookbooks. According to a release, her 34th and 35th cookbooks will be published by Clarkson Potter. Details of the first are available: Titled Dinner, it will showcase "a year's worth of accessible, never-before-published weekday recipes with guidelines to create hundreds more." The recipes will be "organized by ingredient for quick reference (what you're in the mood for and what's available) and geared to fast and basic cooking techniques." A tentative release is scheduled for Fall 2016.

Publishers Marketplace also confirms that author Ashley Warlick will publish In Hunger, a biography of thoughtful food writer M.F.K. Fisher's early life. Set in "California and France between the Great Depression and World War II," it covers the episode in which Fisher "while writing her first book, traded her first husband for her second in a tangle of food and sex and impossible choices that shaped her into the iconic woman she would become." Viking is the publisher; a release date has not yet been set.
