Vegan cooking for the holidays

Care of Florence McCambridge Whether this is your first time cooking a vegan meal for the holidays or you’re just looking for some new menu ideas, The Vegan Holiday Cookbook: From Elegant Appetizers to Festive Mains and Delicious Sweets 
by Marie Laforêt has got you covered. It’s full of recipes and full-colour photos for spreads and hors d’oeuvres, soups and mains, not to mentions sweets and even festive cocktails. Many of the recipes included in this book are gluten-free, and the author has also included a helpful section listing them by category. I really appreciate the variety of recipes in The Vegan Holiday Cookbook, particularly in the section on appetizers, an often overlooked category that is particularly important at this time of year. Some standouts include the Foie Gras-Style Terrine made with shiitake mushrooms and tofu, the Blinis with Carrot Gravlax, and the elegant yet simple Squash Truffles. When it comes to dessert, this book does not disappoint. In addition to gingerbread and shortbread, there are some showstoppers like the Frozen Tiramisu Log, Chestnut Creme Brûlée, and a Snow White Layer Cake that looks almost too good to eat. I like to make my own… Read More

Cooking Up Sunshine

Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Barbi, TVA’s Donor and Volunteer Resources Coordinator and I’ve decided to join in on the blog fun that my colleague Carly enjoyed over the summer. Soon you’ll also be meeting Autumn, one of our past communications interns. Ever since the 29th Vegetarian Food Festival, people have been asking me what it’s like post-festival. “It must be such a relief!” “You finally get some relaxing time!”. Actually….no! Thanks to such an amazing, committed army of volunteers that the Toronto Vegetarian Association has, things don’t slow down after the Festival, and the office has been a buzz as we plan for almost non-stop outreach. Since September 8th, Toronto Vegetarian Association volunteers have staffed tables at Word on the Street, a Wellness Fair in Oakville and two Humber College events, and by the end of today will have also given out about 10,000 leaflets promoting a vegetarian diet on university campuses in the GTA. But there is one thing that changes in the office post-festival, and that’s the unveiling of the fully stocked, newly organized, bursting bookshelves full of all the latest and greatest vegetarian titles that shipped in just before September 6th. If you… Read More
