**Signed copy by Chef Alexis Sicklick

Nutcracker Season has officially arrived! Now that the holidays are upon us, it is time to begin cooking for the festivities occurring during the beginning of winter. While our parties may still be smaller this year, that does not mean we cannot make the most of it with the people around us! And for those of us who love to go and watch a performance of The Nutcracker, we still need a way to capture that spirit in our activities, even if we cannot see a live show.

This new cookbook inspired by the classic ballet will fulfill your Nutcracker, culinary, and celebratory wishes! Inside is a collection of recipes and anecdotes that relate to every scene in The Nutcracker, taking you through the same journey in the traditional story with numerous savory and sweet treats full of intriguing twists. The dishes are approachable and can be created with others if you are spending these occasions with family and friends, but they also evoke a sense of familiarity and comfort even if you are on your own. These recipes are generally plant-forward and nut-based – all are gluten-free and vegetarian, and they are jam-packed with flavor and decadence! Additionally, there are delightful illustrations depicting The Nutcracker through the food itself, making this a fun-filled interactive experience for anyone who wants to follow along!

Furthermore, I fashioned the book as a way to reflect on the past few years for young children to adults, using the themes of the Nutcracker story to create a more universal connection and understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Concepts highlighted include sharing happiness, overcoming challenges, beginning anew with the start of every year, gaining wisdom from family both current and past, and appreciating the diversity amongst everyone. I hope that this cookbook will encourage conversations regarding deeper recollection and personal growth while you partake in the exciting recipe preparations and indulge in all the scrumptious dishes featured.
