Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

You can say one thing for this collection of modern kosher recipes"it ain't chopped liver. That fatty, flavorful favorite is replaced with fancy-schmancy fare like Artichoke Confit and Fava Bean Salad. Frankel, owner of Shallots restaurant in Chicago, deserves credit for widening the horizons of kosher cooking, as she incorporates novelties such as venison (Ginger-Marinated Venison Loin with Purple Sticky Rice and Spring Pea Salad) and bison (Bison, Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches). Dishes are grouped by season, but despite the promising subtitle, there are no holiday menus included. Chatty prose abounds in sidebars ("It may sound a little silly to say that I am passionate about salmon. Nevertheless... I am!"). There's nothing especially Jewish about Grilled Marinated Short Ribs with Spicy Fruit Barbecue Sauce or Herbed Roasted Chicken with Quinoa-Mushroom Pilaf except that they can be prepared to meet the laws of kashrut. Even without a strong hook, though, bubbe would approve, and the two million kosher households in the U.S., as the publisher figures, will likely be grateful for these new recipes. (Aug.)

MY FAVORITE COOKBOOK!! Aug. 30 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I COOK A LOT OF BON APPETIT AND [...] RECIPES. I THINK THIS COOKBOOK IS JUST DELICIOUS!! PICTURES ARE GREAT, RECIPES ARE VERY TASTY AND FULL OF DEPTH. WHENEVER I WANT A SURE HIT I PULL THIS ONE OUT AND MAKE SOMETHING. I LIKE THAT IT IS ORGANIZED BY SEASON. NOTE THAT HER QUANTITIES ARE SOMETIMES VERY LARGE. I JUST WISH SHE CAME OUT WITH ANOTHER COOKBOOK ( I DONT ENJOY SLOW COOKING).

Love this book Feb. 23 2011

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have bought other books by this author and am never disappointed. The recipes are not simple...some have many fussy steps...not for the novice cook. That being said if you are an accomplished cook looking for wonderful meals for holidays or Shabbos you will not be disappointed. If your looking for quick easy to make meals, this book is not for you.
One of the best! July 10 2013

I had borrowed this book from the local library - but then had to have a personal copy.

Interesting and creative receipes + clear directions ... introductory notes also a plus.
Not for the novice cook, but a great read May 31 2012
By pablo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I checked this book out of the library recently, along with a number of other kosher cookbooks. I'm just beginning to cook and would only feel comfortable making a few of the recipes in this book. That being said, it's a well written and enticing book. The layout is refreshing - menus and recipes arranged by the seasons, highlighting the fresh produce available at that time. For a beginner, reading through some of the steps in various recipes, you get the feeling that there's more to it, that more accomplished cooks know what's actually involved. Even so, the story telling throughout is wonderful and some of the hints and tips listed within can be used by cooks of all types, novice to experts. It's definitely worth a read.
