Have you left your shopping until the last minute? Need a few final ideas for someone on your list? Well, here you go! Just make sure you’re not seeing the person until after the holiday or spring for the faster shipping, because it’s getting late!
1. Vegan Holiday Kitchen by Nava Atlas
Nava’s most recent cookbook is a gorgeous hardback with beautiful food photography and holiday-themed dishes and menus beyond just Winter celebrations. It’s a wonderful collection that will inspire you in the kitchen year-round. We’ve only had a chance to make one or two things from it so far, but are looking forward to trying out a couple more over Christmas. (Full review forthcoming.)
His first full-length album remains one of my all-time favorites and his latest is another great collection of original “holler blues.” He goes the old-school route once again, recording on a 1950′s Concertone (One Track) reel-to-reel with a 1940′s era RCA Victor Radio mic in an abandoned Brooklyn loft. You’ll be up and out of your seat in no time. (Plus, this is likely the first blues album to reference N.W.A in the opening seconds.)
3. Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide by Sayward Rebhal
Are you vegan? Are you or your partner pregnant? Sayward Rebhal’s handy little book published by Herbivore is one you’ll want to have your nightstand right next to Reed Mangels’ Everything Vegan Pregnancy Book. Full of both nutritional guidance as well as practical advice, the Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide is a light (but informative!), fun (but helpful!) read about what can be a challenging, confusing time. (Full review forthcoming.)
