By at 1:12 pm

Anyone else starting Passover prep?

Here’s what I did last weekend in order to start the thorough, divinely ordained, obsessive-compulsive, halachically elucidated purging of the five grains the Torah forbids us from consuming, eating, or gaining benefit from during the eight days of Passover, which begin this year on April 14, at sundown.

Mayim’s Vegan Cookbook is Out Tomorrow

By at 1:40 pm

vegan-table-preorder-ad1I wrote a vegan cookbook called Mayim’s Vegan Table with pediatrician and pediatric nutritionist Dr. Jay Gordon. It comes out tomorrow. You can get it at bookstores and online on Amazon.

Here are the Top 4 Questions I am always being asked about the book and this phase of my life.

1. Will there be a book tour?

Yes and no. De Capo Press is my publisher and I do what they say. They are sending me to New York in a few weeks to do press there during a hiatus week from “The Big Bang Theory.” I will be on “The Today Show” and also Katie Couric and Wendy Williams’ shows. I will do a ton of local press, phone interviews, print interviews, and stuff like that. I know that when some books come out, the authors go all over the place to sell it, but this is what my publisher has planned for me. Read the rest of this entry →

Exclusive Sneak Peek of My New Cookbook “Mayim’s Vegan Table”

By at 9:54 am

mayim's vegan table

As those of you who have been reading Kveller for a long time and/or following The Official Mayim Bialik Page on Facebook know, I love to cook and bake. I have written about my grandmother’s legacy of teaching my mother to cook and bake (and also clean a sink like nobody’s business) who in turn taught me to cook and bake (and clean a sink like nobody’s business) and I have many times posted pretty pictures of some of the dishes I cook and bake. Of special note is my Fruit Face post but that’s not the best example of my cooking, I promise.

I love turning traditional Jewish foods vegan without sparing the deliciousness or “heimishe” taste of so many dishes I grew up with: rugelach, babka, sufganiyot, latkes, tzimmes, kugels, hamantaschen… I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that just because I am vegan, it doesn’t mean I don’t want to still make delicious food that suits all of my ethnic and gustatory needs, as well as those of my friends and family.

Mayim Bialik Announces Next Book

By at 11:18 am

mayim bialik new book vegan cookbookBreaking news. It’s something many Kveller readers have asked for so I made it happen…

Drum roll….

My next book will be a plant-based (vegan!) family cookbook. Yay! It’s meant for vegan and non-vegan alike! I intend to include all of the Jewish recipes I’ve veganized as well as all of our family’s standard beloved recipes.

Pediatrician and pediatric nutritionist Dr. Jay Gordon is writing the nutrition chapters with me. I have a food stylist, recipes to test, and so much fun ahead!

Here’s the announcement by my publisher.

Read up on my first book, and then get a sneak preview of my vegan cooking with recipes for mini potato kugels and chocolate truffle pie.
