Greetings, customers! We apologize for being so quiet lately; getting our website up and running smoothly has been our priority these last few months. Thank you to all of you who have purchased from us online. It’s an exciting new frontier for New Stone Age, and we’re happy to be crossing it with you. In fact, while we’re saying thanks, we might as well say…
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and it’s not just any old Thanksgiving either. This year, the first night of Hanukkah coincides with turkey day, and we couldn’t be more excited. In our minds, Thanksgiving is all about food, and now that Hanukkah’s coming to the table, it means even more gustatory delights to indulge in. We envision a mouthwatering table filled with turkey and stuffing alongside latkes and brisket. Or go ahead and mix it up with a latke-infused stuffing, cranberry-apple sauce and pumpkin-flavored donuts (sufganiyot) for dessert. Even a deep-fried turkey fits right in with the Hanukkah tradition of frying food in oil, symbolizing the oil lamp that burned for eight nights. As you can see, both holidays call for indulgent cuisine, and we think they’re perfectly paired. Apparently, we’re not the only ones overcome with excitement about this Thanksgiving-Hanukkah collaboration; check out this nine-year-old boy’s vision!
Speaking of food, we just received a fresh shipment of one of our favorite cookbooks, Pure Vegan.
Are you a vegan who dreads going to holiday meals, because you either have to bring your own food or risk being fed a pile of steamed broccoli? This is the go-to book for vegans looking to wow their omnivorous friends who assume they only eat sawdust and lettuce leaves. Although everything in the book is purely plant-based, the recipes are truly indulgent and don’t skimp on flavor; you won’t feel like you’re sacrificing taste in the name of health.
In fact, you’ll find plenty of desserts, like the rich Chocolate Sea Salt Tart or the Sweet Crema with Berries and Chambord, and even cocktails, like the Shiso Leaf Martini or the Blood Orange Margarita. Breakfast foods, entrees, side dishes and tapas all make an appearance, and are photographed beautifully in full-page spreads.
We think the Roasted Brown Bag Vegetables, the Baked Ratatouille in Phyllo and the Broiled Tofu, Carrots and Shiitake Mushrooms would all be welcome additions to the Thanksgivnukkah table. Pick up a copy in the store or buy one online, and you’ll be all set for the feast (or feasts) ahead.
