Vegan Holiday Cooking from Candle Cafe: Celebratory Menus and Recipes from New York's Premier Plant-Based Restaurants by Joy Pierson
I am not a Vegan but there have been many times that family members or friends come to visit that are. Vegan Holiday Cooking From Candle Café is the perfect recipe book for just such times. Although they are holiday based many will be a perfect dish for anytime of the year.
Initially I thought this book was going to be filled with Christmas, maybe Thanksgiving recipes but it actually covers Cinco de Mayo to Passover and beyond, wow was I pleasantly surprised.
Most important to me in a cook book…
The recipes are easy to follow with many familiar and quickly acquired ingredients. I have to say I am also visual person and many of the recipes have colored pictures with marvelous presentations that will wow your guests.
Vegan Holiday Cooking from Candle Café: Celebratory Menus and Recipes from New York’s Premier Plant-Based Restaurants will add many wonderful additions to my cooking repertoire.
