Vegan Holiday Cooking from Candle Cafe

Vegan Holiday Cooking is for people who love to cook and who are constantly looking for innovative and delicious recipes. It’s for people who love to spend time in the kitchen, either alone or with friends, and create beautiful vegan food that is full of flavor and love.  It’s for cooks who love to bring everyone to the table to celebrate and savor the holidays.” – Vegan Holiday Cooking

As a vegan home chef, I love the ease of making a quick meal at home.  When it comes to celebrations and making something extra special, though, finding the perfect recipe can be difficult.  Too many cookbooks focus on the everyday without emphasizing special occasions.  Vegan Holiday Cooking from Candle Cafe by Joy Pierson, Angel Ramos, and Jorge Pineda is the exception.  This book makes vegan dining a year round celebration.

With menus for the Super Bowl, Easter, Thanksgiving, Cinco de Mayo, and other essential holidays, this book is a year round treasure trove of vegan recipes.  Plus, the photos and detailed descriptions associated with the recipes make for a visually stunning and absolutely informative cookbook.  Plus, options like Mini Muffins with Homemade Preserves, Crispy Black Bean Tacos, Big Barbecue Seitan Burgers, Vegan Cheese Plate, and Warm Apple Turnovers and Champagne Ice Cream are sure to become year round favorites.  Others, like Braised Cranberry Orange Tofu, Christmas Pomegranate Punch, and Joy’s Grandma’s Seitan Brisket with Roasted Carrots, Shallots and Turnips, you will be able to make any holiday more festive and exciting.

This gem of a collection features recipes to suit every palate – vegans and omnivores alike.  While the recipes are not labeled as gluten free, there are a number that fit the bill.  Overall, though, this book is a winner and perfect for any holiday.
