Review

Forward, “5 Books to Munch on in 2013,” 1/4/13“It was only a matter of time before the world’s most high-profile kosher vegan turned to cookbook authorship, and so it is that Blossom’s recipes will grace bookstores this year.”

RedbookMag.com, 2/3/14
Mayim’s Vegan Table…isn’t your run-of-the-mill book of recipes. It’s also a perspective-shifting manual for people looking to eat a more plant-based diet in the interest of health and eco-friendliness.”

EverydayHealth.com, 2/10/14
“Includes a handy, helpful list of ingredients and gadgets that make whipping up vegan meals a breeze.”

Jewish Business News, 2/13/14

Forward.com, The Jew and the Carrot blog, 2/18/2014

“While this book isn’t going to have foodies rapturously tweeting about its mouth-watering recipes, it could just get your kids to eat more veggies, which, I can imagine, in some circles of exasperated parents, might be just the kind of cookbook one is looking for.”


The Weiser Kitchen, 2/18/2014

Groupon Blog, 3/4/14

“Shares tips on adopting healthier eating habits, and a slew of recipes…Filled with such useful, practical information that could help people live happier, healthier lives.”


Ecorazzi.com, 3/6/14

“This family-friendly recipe pub is packed with convenient, delicious and nutritious meals to please even the pickiest palate…It also contains a comprehensive intro, addressing anticipated queries from potential purchasers. From combating the money myth—the misconception that eating vegan will somehow cost more than eating meat, dairy and eggs—to how to stock your pantry, from tips to e kids onboard (with the aforementioned dishes, we can’t imagine it’s too tough…) to what tools and appliances would be best to invest in, Bialik and her co-author, Dr. Jay Gordon, make it turnkey.”


Philadelphia Daily News, 3/6/14

“Written in a warm, easygoing, earth-mother style, the book addresses readers curious about vegan eating—for themselves but, also, maybe, for their kids…There’s a lot of creative fun in the collection, as well as no-nonsense staples like potato salad, tomato soup, tacos and falafel.”


Examiner.com, 3/1/14

“Tasty recipes…All of [Bialik’s] influences, past and present, are reflected in her new cookbook.”

Natural Jewish Parenting blog, 3/31/14
“Mayim makes a compelling case for eating a vegan diet and raising kids that way. Her book offers not only a really nice variety of very real-life recipes, but also a wealth of information about vegan nutrition and alternatives to more conventional (animal-based) foods. But vegan philosophy or not, her book is at heart a cookbook filled with ideas for healthy things to feed your family. Everyone can find lots of new ideas here that their kids would eat and enjoy. And if you are looking for a vegan cookbook because you’re vegan, too, this is a great choice.”

I purchased this book because I am a fan of Mayim Bialik, and was interested in learning about vegan cooking. There are a lot of really convenient and simple recipes in the book, as well as some more difficult ones. She acknowledges that a full commitment to vegan life-style isn't realistic for most people. In turn, she provides some evidence of how vegan eating can benefit you. She also gives some vegan recipes that dedicated carnivores would enjoy. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming a vegan or just looking to add a few vegan meals to their diet.

I really like this cookbook. I was a little disappointed in it when it arrived, but I've taken the time to explore it and find that I like it more every day. However, it's not perfect.

This cookbook offers a good mixture of vegan recipes and nutrition basics that will be helpful to those new to the vegan lifestyle, especially parents that want to incorporate this type of eating into family meals. I have sampled several recipes that turned out very well, but not all of the recipes appeal to me. One recipe appears to be missing an ingredient. Accidents happen!

Why go vegan? The authors provide basics on environmental issues and ethics behind vegan choices, without being pushy. I like that and I think it will help non-vegans become more curious without being pushed away. I also appreciate the casual and friendly approach that is conveyed throughout the book. It felt comfortable.

The recipes are good, but not necessarily new or exciting. Many of the recipes are for home-style comfort foods that will appeal to families. These include recipes such as enchilada casserole, chili, French toast, and plenty of yummy desserts. If that's the type of food your family eats, and most probably do, this cookbook will help provide healthier alternatives to traditional recipes.

I love cookbooks with photos, but I'm sorry to say that the photos in this book disappointed me. The style seems outdated and I think it makes the food look bland. If I were flipping through this book in a bookstore, I would probably put it back on the shelf. The internet is filled with avid food bloggers that have mastered perfect food photography. I'm sure that not everyone will agree with me, but I'm a nut for good food photography and I felt this one was lacking. I'm sorry!

I was really looking forward to this book and I really, REALLY wanted to like it. But I am sad to say that I am quite disappointed with it. It is a great cook book for a beginner cook or someone new to veganism. But if you are looking for new exciting recipes this is not the book for you.
I am a vegan cookbook junkie so I have A LOT of vegan cookbooks and in Mayim's Vegan Table I didn't find anything that hadn't already been done. I don't need another recipe for taco salad, hummus, chili or fries. Seriously there is a recipe for fries(potatoes, oil, salt). I hate when cookbooks give "recipes" like that. I guess if you are VERY new to cooking its helpful. But I just found the book very uninventive. Another example the Sushi in a Bowl recipe is sushi rice, rice vinegar, avocado, sesame seeds, & nori. While I'm sure it doesn't taste bad its just very basic. I was hoping for more.

Also, I like cookbooks with lots of pictures. There are 8 pages in the middle of the cookbook with pics and that it.

I was interested in this book because I like Mayim Bialik as an actress, so I started it with some reservation about Vegan-ism. I have to say Mayim and Dr. Jay made me take a second look at my health, food sources, and menus. I think the book is informative without being pushy like some Vegans can be. After reading this book I am seriously considering a plant based life from here on out. It shows that you can live this way and still find joy in food without feeling deprived. All I can say is good work and what a way to put together something that most would think is hard to live. You make it seem so easy and simple. I loved the book and feel better for reading it and even if I don't become a Vegan I will definitely change the way I eat and put more plants based foods in my diet and cut out things that are not so good for my body and health. Thanks Mayim and Dr. Jay

I agree with another reviewer, this book is almost a "starter" vegan book. I've been vegan for a long while and have a TON of books including texts books; therefore nothing was new to me. However, I think this book is wonderful! She starts the way she should with facts and insightful info on what you should know. Her recipes are tasty and easy to make. I tend to stay more in her main dish section, for I do not eat sugar, but I can substitute if I like. She adds photo's and cute descriptions before each meal, which is nothing new to the cookbook world, but you should know. I'd recommend this book to anyone. As a vegan cookbook collector, I proudly add it to my bookshelf!

I am vegan and I own a lot of vegan cookbooks. Since I am now a mom, I have been looking for more vegan cookbooks geared toward moms with quick recipes that are still unique. I really love the recipe ideas in this book. It includes staple recipes for newer vegan families like Mac and cheese and enchiladas, but it also has some new ideas I have not seen in other cookbooks (sushi in a bowl). It also includes a lot of Jewish recipes like Matzo ball soup and Challah that I have not seen in any other vegan cookbooks. I especially love the recipe for little breads in the shape of turtles. I know my son will really love making those with me!
Overall, a really great addition to your vegan recipe collection. Especially if you are looking for simple recipes for your vegan family.
