Zel Allen Goes Nuts for Good Health


Posted by Zel Allen's nutgourmet on December 11, 2011

I’ve got exciting news and want to share what I’ve been working on.

While I’m still dedicated to all things nutty, during the past five years I’ve written a new cookbook focused on vegan holiday recipes. Because of my passion for nuts, I’ve included nut-focused recipes, but I’ve also created many non-nutty dishes.

The working title of the new book is GONE VEGAN FOR THE HOLIDAYS, but that could possibly change as the book progresses through the editing process. The book features recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Years and aims to bring a touch of nostalgia to the holiday table with attractive presentations and foods that are typically connected to the autumn and winter season.

Today I send my final manuscript to the publisher (Book Publishing Company) and next month I start working with an editor. I have a hunch Gone Vegan for the Holidays will be published about middle of 2012—so, not too far away. I’m very excited and will be sharing recipes on the blog.

In two days, I leave for a two-week vacation with my sweetie. We’ll be flying to the Philippines to spend an exciting time with our son and future daughter-in-law and help to plan their wedding. Our house will be in good hands, but our cat, Fuzzy, will be missing us greatly.

I hope to bring back tons of photos and some delicious Philippine recipes to share–veganized, of course.

For now my wish is for all to enjoy and warm, loving, and fulfilling Holiday Season!

Until next year – – –
