A Must Have For Your Cookbook Collection!,
This review is from: Vegan Holiday Kitchen: More than 200 Delicious, Festive Recipes for Special Occasions (Hardcover)
Vegan Holiday Kitchen is the perfect book for holiday cooking! Since most holidays focus on food, they can be a tough time for vegans and vegetarians who dine with omnivore families and people who are in the midst of transitioning their diets. This book is here to help!
The recipes are divided by holiday starting Thanksgiving, the biggest food holiday of them all, and ending with Independence Day and Summer Entertaining, and there's even a chapter with recipes for brunches and potluck dishes. The Christmas chapter features baked goods that are perfect for gift giving along with recipes for Christmas dinner dishes. Nava offers tips on how to plan our your holiday meal, what to cook ahead and what shortcuts you can take and there are helpful tips and tidbits sprinkled throughout the book. Each section has sample menus that you can mix and match and there are plenty of recipes that will keep you coming back to this book year after year. The recipes all use standard ingredients that can be found at any grocery store, so omnivores won't have any problems finding ingredients when they're cooking dinner for vegans, and non-vegans won't find anything "too weird" or foreign to them.
In addition to being chock full of delicious recipes, this is a beautiful hardcover book full of mouthwatering photos. It's the perfect book to give as a gift to both vegans and omnivores alike!
