Christmas (a Nigella one) Has Come Early

Yay! It seems a new Nigella Lawson cookbook, Nigella Christmas, is out (or coming soon; it's not shipping from the US Amazon just yet). Wasn't it just yesterday when I trekked into New York City to attend her book signing for Nigella Express at the Whole Foods on Houston and Bowery? I'm so glad she has a new book out so soon.

I could become a strict fruitarian (ain't never gonna happen) and I would still buy her books. There is a vegetarian Christmas feast included and, though I'm sure it will be loaded with cheese, what's great about Nigella's books is that her "unofficially" vegan recipes (meaning she doesn't write, "This. Is. Vegetarian." She just cooks some vegetables and stuff) are plentiful and really good. And unlike other famous foodies, she doesn't seem to disdain vegetarians and vegans.

I first read the vegetarian chapter of Feast with a shudder. She wrote something to the effect that her worst nightmare would be to wake up a vegetarian. I felt the same at the time. Who knew?

Anyways, I must get this book!

I must say, I have never heard of Nigella. Thank you for sharing this post. I am going to check it out.

I will have to check out Nigella's cookbook. Love your recipes. Will try the bok choy this week. Congrats on two years of dating, why aren't you two blissfully happy vegan bloggers married yet?

Pink Heels: Nigella Lawson is awesome. She's why I thought writing about food might be remotely interesting.

CheapVegan: Thank you for your compliment! I'd love to hear how the bok choy comes out.

As for the vegan boyfriend and mr, we will get married one day but first we need to live in the same state! We're doing the sorta long-distance thing now. He's in Philly and I'm in NJ.
