Are you in need of accessible, but creative holiday recipes that you won’t find anywhere else? If so–and who isn’t!–look no further than The Blooming Platter Cookbook.
My12th Annual Christmas, Chanukah, Curry & Cakes party is this Wednesday and I plan to pull out my copy of The Blooming Platter Cookbook, make my menu and shopping list this weekend, and begin the preparations for this beloved gathering.
I used to host the party as a vegan curry buffet dinner with gifts for about 20 dear friends. But last year, I changed it to a “Swap” with vegan curried hors d’oeuvres conducive to browsing. It was such a hit, that I decided to host a Swap again this year.
Click HERE for a fun look at last year’s party, including the menu and a description of my foolproof approach to hosting this type of event where guests bring unused or gently used home & garden items, clothing, accessories, and art to swap with each other. Ours even ended up benefiting charity, not only through the few leftover items I donated, but through cash that guests used to purchase items when their tokens ran out!
While they shopped, my guests enjoyed, among other things, these dishes all from The Blooming Platter Cookbook:
Bloomin’ Broccoli Dip
Indian Saag Dip
Lavender Shortbread Cookies
The Blooming Platter Cookbook also makes a great gift…but not just for vegans! Anyone who loves fresh, inventive food will find “4 Seasons of Yum!”
As always, while I encourage buyers to support their local booksellers, Amazon is offering some incredible deals right now.
