From Publishers' Weekly:

Kornfeld (The Voluptuous Vegan) focuses on holidays reflecting America's multicultural society. For each celebration Kornfeld offers a vegetarian entree, a fish or poultry dish, numerous sides and dessert, all designed "to leave us feeling energetic and nourished after the meal as well as delighted during the experience." The Hanukkah menu turns traditional potato pancakes into light, full-flavored Celery Root-Apple Latkes with Sage. For Kwanzaa, Ethiopian cuisine contributes the spicy warmth of Doro We't (Chicken Stew). Chinese New Year features Sesame Noodles with Wilted Napa Cabbage, with long noodles to bring long life. Dessert for a sumptuous Valentine's Day is Fallen Lemon Ricotta Souffles, and for a Greek inspired Easter, Baklava Cups with Almond-Vanilla Tapioca Pudding and Strawberry Rhubarb Compote. Kornfeld's directions are easy to follow, and her multiday time lines for each holiday feast help to create a more relaxed experience in the kitchen. These unique and inspiring recipes make it easy to "infuse your food with intention and cook joyfully." (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Here are two different approaches to holidays throughout the year. In their second cookbook, Hometown Recipes for the Holidays, the editors of American Profile magazine present 250 recipes from readers, chosen from 1500 entries submitted for a recent contest. Organized by course, each recipe is marked with an icon that indicates the appropriate holiday, from New Year's Eve to Flag Day to Christmas (oddly, there are some Passover recipes but none for Hanukkah). The recipes are homey and mostly traditional, with the resulting collection being something of a national community cookbook. American Profile is a weekly supplement distributed through newspapers with a combined circulation of around nine million; buy for demand. Kornfeld, who teaches at the Natural Gourmet Cooking School in Manhattan, is also the author of The Voluptuous Vegan and an earlier Healthy Hedonist cookbook. The holidays in her new book include Ramadan, Kwanzaa, and Chinese New Year, as well as the standards, and her recipes are drawn from a wide variety of cuisines. She provides an extensive menu for each holiday, giving readers a range of choices, and the menus are designed to be "flexitarian," including both a vegetarian main dish and one with fish or poultry. Adventurous cooks whose holiday guests include both vegetarians and meat eaters will find lots of new ideas here. For most collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
