"One area of vegan cuisine that has not been fully addressed is the perennial need to create festive meals for holidays. Now Nava Atlas, one of the most respected names in vegetarian and vegan cooking, addresses this need in more than 200 mouthwatering, completely doable recipes for special (and everyday) occasions, from Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah to celebratory dinners, brunches, potlucks, and buffets-with a special section on desserts. Even non-vegans will be surprised and delighted by mouthwatering Coconut Butternut Squash Soup and Green Chili Corn Bread to start off a cold-weather holiday meal, followed by a Hearty Vegetable Pot Pie or a serving of delicate Ravioli with Sweet Potatoes and Sage. A Mixed Greens Salad with Pears and Glazed Pecans adds zest and sweetness to any meal, and the author's take on Thanksgiving stuffing (Field Roast Vegan Sausages and Mushrooms) and desserts (Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Hint of Chocolate or a Cashew Chocolate Mousse Pie!) will convince even the most skeptical eater that vegan cooking is the way to go---and not just on holidays"-- Provided by publisher.

Library Journal Review

In her latest, well-known vegetarian and vegan cookbook author Atlas (Vegan Express) seeks to make holiday entertaining a festive, stress-free experience for hosts and guests alike. She offers festive, easy-to-make recipes along with practical tips on etiquette, healthy eating, and time-saving techniques. She also clearly identifies gluten-, soy-, and nut-free dishes. Some recipes are adapted from the previously published Vegetarian Celebrations, but most are new. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah are best represented, but ideas for Easter, summer entertaining, and brunches are also included. For other occasions, try Alicia C. Simpson's Quick & Easy Vegan Celebrations. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
