Format: Paperback
Nearly every kitchen today has a food processor (or should), but most people do not even begin to use this versatile and invaluable kitchen tool to its full potential. Norene Gilletz is about to change all that. Her new book, an encyclopedic reference on the food processor -- including over 500 recipes, will teach your old food processor how to do an impressive array of new tricks.
This book provides an indispensable guide to the modern kitchen. No longer will it take hours of tedious prep time to create fabulous dishes. In addition to the time saved with your food processor, Norene always includes and tips and notes with each recipe, letting the reader know what recipes or steps can be done ahead of time and what can be frozen and reheated later. She also covers food safety information, microwave cooking options, dairy-free options, and health conscious and vegetarian options to many recipes. There are even 130 recipes suitable for Passover (Norene is the leading author of Kosher cookbooks in Canada).
Recipe categories include: appetizers; soups, sauce and marinades; fish and dairy dishes; meat and poultry; vegetable and side dishes; super salads and dressings; yeast doughs, quick breads and muffins; cakes and frostings; desserts and tortes; chocolates, cookies and squares; pies and pastries; Passover recipes.

When I bought my new food processor, I knew I would need help to learn how to use it. So I made a special effort to find this particular book, because Norene Gilletz wrote it! Having already purchased one of her other cookbooks, I knew I would find an abundance of know-how and delicious, simple to make recipes. Norene has the rare knack for explaining everything in her book simply and clearly, from food processing, to terminology, to how to's. It's like having your own private cooking instructor!

Format: Paperback
Owning a new cookbook by Norene Gillettz is as exciting to me, as a new computer is for my husband. I've known about the Processor Bible for several months and I was anxious to see how it was different from Norene's other books. While it is not in binder form, it stayed open when I started to read it. You don't need a magnifying glass to read the recipes. The printing is clear and well spaced. The ingredient list is printed in a different colour than the instruction part of the recipe. That's a good thing. This way you can see if you have the ingredients before you get started. To the left of the recipe, you will see how much it makes. Is it enough to feed all of us or should I double it? Yes, it says I can freeze it. Good thing. I have time today to make it and I will freeze it until I need it next week.
The best part of the book, you guessed it, is the recipes. I've made about a dozen of them and I got rave reviews from my critics. Norene makes me look good in the kitchen. If you want to feel the same way, add the Processor Bible to your cookbook library.

Format: Paperback
Norene's latest book is a wonderful resource for using your food processor and has great recipes, useful tips and information, especially how to prep, whether your can freeze it or not, and her section on Passover. Read this book and you will be friends with your food processor.
The appetizers, desserts and Passover sections are my favorites. Please try the Hot Cheese Cake (page 129) as a main dish for brunch. It'll be a hit. Also the Chocolate Matzo Bark (page 446).
I've been referring to Norene's cookbooks for years. As a university student, my culinary reptertoire came mostly from her Pleasures of Your Food Processor and Second Helpings Please. This new and updated food processor book has provided me with updated information and new and useful recipes.
You don't need to be a kosher household to love this book! It's vital to any cook.

Format: Paperback
Her original book "Pleasures of your Food Processor' was great. This newer/modified version is excellent. Expanded to include more vegetarian choices, enhanced former recipes to adjust to modern trends, and a wealth of food processor information awaits the reader. Highly recommended for beginners to veteran cooks. The only downfall is the lack of pictures. However, in my experience everything I tried, and there have been dozens of delicious delights, came out extremely well. Use a little imagination for presentation. A great gift for someone else or yourself!

This book is a solid investment. There are some great staple recipes, as well as some really useful tips for use, maintenance and care of your processor.

I've made a good number of the recipies in this book, and have yet to find a flop. They're simple, easy to follow and taste great. Best of all, these are things I would make on a daily basis. Very, very happy with this book.

For 30 years I've been using the orginal Food Processor Bible. I love the new updated edition with all the nutritional information, new recipes, terrific, helpful tips and hints, and great Jewish holiday recipes and suggestions. I usually give this as a shower gift, since everyone should have a copy.
