The cookbook author Jessica Seinfeld is standing in her office, which also happens to be her kitchen. “This is where I do my homework,” she says, referring to writing her fifth book, Vegan, at Times, which comes out this month and includes more than 120 plant-based recipes. There’s not a chair in sight. “I try not to sit because I heard sitting is the new smoking,” she says, deadpan. “And we’re sitting ourselves to death.”

Seinfeld was raised the middle of three daughters in Oyster Bay, New York, and, later, Burlington, Vermont, by her father, a software engineer, and her mother, a victim services specialist. Both had long commutes to work, which meant she was often tasked with cooking duties. “If we wanted to eat before 8 o’clock at night, I had to help [my mom] get dinner on the table. [She] would write little Post-its on things in the refrigerator before work that said, ‘Heat this at 350 degrees for 45 minutes,’ and we’d have baked ziti by the time she got home,” she says. “That’s how I became really comfortable in the kitchen, which segued into cooking and working in kitchens and restaurants all through high school and college.”
