As women over fifty, we’ve hosted our share of holiday parties. And for many of us, coming up with new ideas to create delicious fare can be challenging—not to mention downright stressful! In addition to wanting our holiday tables to be festive, we also want to serve our family and friends food that’s healthful as well as mouth-watering.
Enter Nava Atlas. This remarkable woman has been blessed with an innovative mind that gives creativity a whole new meaning. Not only is she a visual artist whose work has graced museums, galleries, and university collections, she is a master cookbook author. In fact, Nava is probably best known for authoring and illustrating such cookbooks as Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons, Vegan Express, The Vegetarian Family Cookbook, and The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet.
In her latest work, however, Nava may have outdone herself! Just in time for Thanksgiving, she’s releasing her amazing work, Vegan Holiday Kitchen. In it, you’ll find over 200 tantalizing recipes that are perfect for your special occasion cooking. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or an omnivore, you’ll find hearty, colorful fare that’s certain to be a hit.
Nava’s book is divided into six chapters containing recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas, the Jewish Holidays, Easter, 4th of July and summer entertaining, as well as brunches, appetizers and potluck dishes. Basically anytime you want to serve something extra special that’s guaranteed to garner compliments, you’ll find the perfect recipe in Vegan Holiday Kitchen. Plus, and perhaps best of all, Nava’s recipes are simple to prepare so you can entertain with panache… but without the pain!
In addition to making you into the perfect holiday hostess, this book also makes for an ideal gift for any gourmet on your list. Photographed by Susan Voisin, Vegan Holiday Kitchen is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.
