Mollie Katzen, with over six million books in print, is listed by the New York Times as one of the best-selling cookbook authors of all time. A 2007 inductee into the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame—and largely credited with moving plant-based cuisine from the fringe to the center of the American dinner plate—Katzen has been named by Health Magazine as one of The Five Women Who Changed the Way We Eat, and she has been a member of the faculty at Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives, the groundbreaking annual symposium co-hosted by The Culinary Institute of America and the Harvard School of Public Health, since its inception.

Katzen is a charter member of the Harvard School of Public Health Nutrition Roundtable and an inaugural honoree of the Natural Health Hall of Fame. An award-winning illustrator and designer as well as bestselling cookbook author and popular public speaker, she is best known as the creator of the groundbreaking classics Moosewood Cookbook, and The Enchanted Broccoli Forest. Her other books include the award-winning, best-selling children's cookbook trilogy, dubbed “the gold standard of children's cookbooks” by the New York Times: Pretend Soup, Honest Pretzels, and Salad People. Mollie Katzen has collaborated on several projects with Walter Willett, MD of Harvard, most notably the book Eat, Drink, & Weigh Less. Her other titles include Still Life with Menu, Vegetable Heaven, Sunlight Café, The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without, and Get Cooking.

From 2003 through 2011, Katzen was a consultant to Harvard University Dining Services, and co-creator of their Food Literacy Project. 

Mollie Katzen's newest project (and 12th book) is The Heart of the Plate: Vegetarian Recipes for a New Generation (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, September 2013) – a 500-page tome, reflecting the evolution of her own cooking, and lavishly illustrated with her own watercolors, photos, and collages.
