Today, Mayim Bialik gave fans a sneak peak of her latest book, “Mayim’s Vegan Table” on her Kveller blog.
The cookbook, due out in February, includes 100 of the actress’s favorite recipes.
“It contains all of the recipes Kveller readers have been asking me to share as well as the recipes that I most frequently make for my family that no one complains about,” Bialik said on her blog. “I also feature recipes I make for non-vegans which they don’t complain about and often remark, ‘THIS is vegan!? I never would have guessed!’ To me, that’s a compliment.”
“The Big Bang Theory” actress credits her grandmother and mother for her love of cooking and baking.
“I love turning traditional Jewish foods vegan without sparing the deliciousness or “heimishe” taste of so many dishes I grew up with: rugelach, babka, sufganiyot, latkes, tzimmes, kugels, hamantaschen… I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that just because I am vegan, it doesn’t mean I don’t want to still make delicious food that suits all of my ethnic and gustatory needs, as well as those of my friends and family.”
“Mayim’s Vegan Table” is available for pre-order on Amazon, with a portion of the proceeds going to her work on Kveller.
