This is a good all-around cookbook, if you're celebrating one of the holidays in this book or not. But the holiday aspect can be a real plus if you're looking for something special to share with friends, family, co-workers, or whoever else during certain celebrations. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter are covered, as well as the Jewish holidays of Passover, Rosh Hashanah, and Hanukkah. There is also a section on Summer entertaining. Lots of tempting full color photos taken by Susan Voisin of the popular blog The Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. This book is focused on Judeo-Christian and Western holidays, but the recipes are good whenever, for whatever reason.
