Product Description

Food writer Estee Kafra's new cookbook takes the best recipes from KosherScoop.com and puts them into one encompassing collection of classic and innovative Jewish recipes. Food websites have become favorite destinations for home cooks to review and share recipes and cooking tips. Kosher recipes are especially popular whether Jewish or not and one of the fastest growing of the kosher websites is KosherScoop.com. Estee Kafra has put together a collection of the best recipes from the site. "Cooking Inspired" is a sampling of the creative and reliable recipes that the site has become known for and will inspire home cooks to let loose their culinary creativity. Over 200 recipes are beautifully photographed and award-winning photographs are scattered throughout the book creating a visual feast for the eyes as well as the palate. "Food is one of our most primal needs, and for most of us, cooking is a basic, everyday chore. But food represents much more than the way in which we satisfy our cravings and keep ourselves alive. It is the way we nurture both ourselves and the people around us", Estee states. "I believe we can take this everyday act and elevate it into an experience of creativity, mindfulness, and meaning. In order to make the most of the world we live in, we need to open our hearts and minds to the inspiration all around us, to the myriad experiences and items that can shape our everyday lives. That's Cooking Inspired." Recipes are divided into categories of inspiration such as: For the Five Senses, Family, Community, Roots, Nurture, Healthy Living, Holidays, Seasons, Special Occasions and Counter Cakes. Recipes are also easily identified as Gluten-Free, Passover-Friendly, and seasonal.Many recipes in the book have direct links to cooking videos on KosherScoop.com. From appetizers to side dishes, to main courses and a vast array of desserts, Cooking Inspired is the go-to cookbook for year-round inspirational kosher meals.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Out-STANDING OVATION!" Nov. 14 2013
By BookBubby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought my copy a few days before it's release at Kosherfest 2014.The moment it was in my hands, the cover graciously invited me inside. It was a "feast" before my eyes!! Estee's style is bold and daring, but the recipes are surprisingly user friendly. She uses recognizable ingredients and emphasizes fresh herbs and spices.Lots of well styled photos will "inspire" you to try the recipes.She takes you on a culinary journey through the seasons, with a collage of photographs of "life" Cookbooks are my favorite choice for gift giving, and this one has shot to the top of my list! It can be enhanced for any occasion by including a serving piece or a gift certificate from a gift store.(I've already started). Leave yours out on display. It will be well used and viewed!!
Bravo, Estée

5.0 out of 5 stars truly inspiring! Nov. 16 2013
By F. wolman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book on pre-order because I have all of Estee's other books and they are absolute favorites. This one takes cookbooks to a whole new level. it's beautiful, practical, and inspiring as well. I actually liked it so much that I sent one to each of my sisters-in-law, no birthday, no special reason, just 'I'm thinking of you'. They were so touched!
If you get this book, you absolutely must check out the gluten free brownie recipe called 'you'll never know brownies'. i doubled it (in five minutes or less) it was gone (in about an hour or less) and no one would believe its actually healthy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cookbook with great recipes!! March 14 2014
By A W - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book a few weeks ago and it is already one of my favorites. The recipes I've tried have been big hits with my family. The chocolate cake and apple bundt cake recipes are worth the cost of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Inspired Cookbook Dec 29 2013
By sandra r. axelrod - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love my job as a food writer! One of the great perks is receiving wonderful new cookbooks to devour. I was recently sent a copy of Estee Kafra's latest, titled Cooking Inspired - Bringing Creativity and Passion Back Into the Kitchen and I was wowed by the taste tempting recipes. Estee is an accomplished food photographer, cookbook author and magazine editor. After a couple of stints as a food editor for print magazines, one of which, Kosher Inspired, morphed into an online magazine KosherScoop.com. Estee serves as the site’s editor and contributes recipes and photographs on a regular basis. Believe it or not, Estee never uses cookbooks. Her love of new things ensures that she is always original and creative in the kitchen. Estee lives in Toronto with her family.

As I read through this fabulous cookbook I felt as though I got to know Estee, her friends and family. Many of these family members and friends inspired or contributed recipes to her book Cooking Inspired. I also realized that though I do not keep kosher myself, the recipes are really for anyone who enjoys good food. Using the best quality ingredients you can afford means that you don't have to play around with them too much to make a delicious dish. And being a creative cook means that you can use her recipes as guides, as all recipes should be used, to prepare the dish your way. If you don't keep kosher it really doesn't matter. I was having friends for dinner and making an Italian inspired meal so I tweaked Estee's fabulous mushroom lasagna recipe and added spicy Italian sausage. Since neither our guests nor Steve and I keep kosher it was perfectly all right. And was it ever good!!!

“Creative cooking does not have to be time-consuming cooking", states Estee. "You may think that trying new ingredients or cooking with the seasons must mean more work, but on the contrary—when using fresh and seasonal ingredients, it takes less time to make your food sing. Inspiration can come from every day, simple things. Usually, a few simple ingredients and some basic techniques are enough to do the trick—and when you’ve done it long enough, this sort of cooking becomes second nature.”

“Food is one of our most primal needs, and for most of us, cooking is a basic, everyday chore. But food represents much more than the way in which we satisfy our cravings and keep ourselves alive. It is the way we nurture both ourselves and the people around us,” Estee says. “I believe we can take this everyday act and elevate it into an experience of creativity, mindfulness, and meaning. In order to make the most of the world we live in, we need to open our hearts and minds to the inspiration all around us, to the myriad experiences and items that can shape our everyday lives. That’s Cooking Inspired.”

I highly recommend that you purchase a copy of this wonderful cookbook. I am totally confident that Jews and non-Jews alike will enjoy cooking her recipes and learn to become very inspired cooks!
