Editorial Reviews

Review

“Vegans, rejoice!. . . . Thanks to Atlas, vegan versions of traditional holiday foods can be incorporated for everyone to enjoy.” --Epicurious.com
 
“Happily, those of us who like to eat and party well need not suffer. . . . Atlas shows Thanksgiving can be bountiful indeed and not a turkey harmed. Beloved winter holiday hits go meatless, including vegan holiday cookies spiced with cinnamon and ginger, mock chopped liver (cashew, onion and mushroom pate) and 'vegg' nog, thick and rich with almond milk and cashew butter, liberally spiked with rum. The spirit of the season remains but anything animal is excised.” --Huffington Post
 
Recipes reprinted in the New York Times “Diner's Journal” and Washington Post.

I've been using Nava's recipe books for many years. She's never steered me wrong. I don't know her personally, but she has always responded to my emails quickly and with warmth. So I ordered this book pre-publication. In the meantime, since some of the recipes have appeared on her website VegKitchen as well as some other vegan websites, I was able to test some of the recipes in this book. The recipes are made with easily obtained ingredients. The steps are simple and use some short cuts (canned beans) without compromising integrity. (Vegan substitutes for dairy are minimal and often optional; she does not include recipes for seitan meat substitutes and explains why in a nonjudgmental way.

The photographs are beautiful. The organization of the book begins with Thanksgiving (the All-American holiday) and goes on to include both Christian and Jewish holidays. She even includes both Sephardic and Ashkenazi variations for the Jewish Holidays. Unlike many writers who do this, Nava is conscious of the differences between the two and includes only one item in her Sephardic Passover section that would not be consider kosher for Passover for Ashkenazi families.)

Her sections on Summer entertaining, Brunches, Appetizers and Potluck dishes round out this beautiful and useful book. T

This book would make an excellent gift for any vegan, vegetarian, or aspiring vegan or vegetarian. In fact, I'd recommend it as a gift to anyone who loves food
My husband and our meat eating Shabbat guests often prefer my vegan main and side dishes from Nava's other cookbooks and I'm sure the same will be true of recipes from Vegan Holiday Kitchen

My first introduction to Nava Atlas was when a friend gave me a copy of Vegetariana: A Rich Harvest of Wit, Lore, and Recipes several years ago. While I was browsing at a local bookstore recently, I ran across Vegan Holiday Kitchen and was drawn in by the gorgeous photos and recipes; I was particularly intrigued by the Jewish vegan updates of beloved classics like sweet noodle kugel, tzimmes, matzoh balls and challah.

Nava was kind enough to send a review copy, and I promptly singled out four test recipes: massaged kale salad, skinny figgy bars, citrus-roasted tofu, and the chocolate orange cake. The kale salad was delicious and easily modified; I've been making it with mustard greens and candied ginger since it lends itself to experimentation with other dried fruits, greens, and seeds / nuts. It takes only moments to throw together, and is a perfect last-minute side dish for a potluck or party.

The skinny figgy bars are a guilt-free update on Fig Newtons; a paste of figs and dates is perked up by a touch of lemon juice, cinnamon and ginger; the filling would make a great jam or spread on its own (I soaked the dates in hot water to soften them before adding them to the food processor). The quick-oat crust almost seemed too wet upon mixing, but baked up tender and moist. I also made the optional orange drizzle, which gave the bars an additional boost of citrus that complemented the lemon juice in the filling.

For the citrus-roasted tofu, I used Italian bitter orange marmalade, which is then mixed with dry mustard, soy sauce, and pepper.

Vegan Holiday Kitchen is such a joy. I am not a vegan, but work with several vegans in my health coaching practice. I know how hard it is for these wonderful individuals to find appropriate holiday food--food that is as fun and festive as what everyone else is eating, but still health supportive and made without animal products. Nava Atlas is an absolute rock star at creating delicious vegetarian and vegan recipes that people actually want to eat (because that's important, right?). She is also so generous with her expertise, always giving a wealth of tips and tricks and options. This is a much-appreciated addition to this year's holiday cookbook lineup. Thanks, Nava!

Given the reviews for this book, I expected a lot and am disappointed. It is a nice looking book, good photos, but the recipes don't measure up. We used it for both Thanksgiving and Christmas meals this year and we had to modify virtually every recipe. In one case, we had a disaster with a baked risotto that called for so much water it became glue. We didn't even add all of the water that the recipe called for. The organization of the book is also awkward, in that recipes are organized by specific menu and it can be hard to sort through for side dishes, desserts or main courses. The index does not help. While the conceptual aspects of the dishes are good, the execution will need adjustment. I advise buyers to try the recipes out before a special occasion and see what you think. You cannot rely on this cookbook to deliver a stellar outcome based on the recipes as they are given - that is a big flaw in a cookbook. These recipes need to be tested further. I do not recommend this book.
