Canadian cookbook author and food writer Rosen (Toronto Cooks; Toronto Eats) presents kosher cooking for a new generation with a collection of 100 Jewish recipes. A great resource for those who are new to preparing kosher meals, this work provides a brief overview of kosher laws, a glossary of Yiddish and Jewish words, and a list of recommended ingredients to keep on hand. Rosen not only focuses on the traditional Jewish recipes she grew up with, but also shares personal favorites close to her heart. Expect recipes for sweet challah, matzo balls, latkes, chicken schnitzel, cabbage rolls, Passover soup noodles, and a revamped skillet kugel, in addition to a tasty assortment of noshes such as pickled salmon and vegetarian chopped liver. Simple sides and main dishes, including a quinoa-tofu bowl, rainbow trout tacos, and lamb stew precede a particularly strong selection of baked goods and desserts. Rosen consistently approaches her subject matter with humor, incorporating personal stories and family photos that help to enhance some great recipes for entertaining and for every day.
VERDICT An attractive and practical cookbook that is recommended for medium and large culinary collections.
