Kushner’s (I Heart Kosher) fourth cookbook is an ode to entertaining and offers sophisticated recipes that reflect the author’s Moroccan and Ashkenazi-Canadian background. She delivers a wide variety of delicious and unique recipes with plenty of vegetarian options. Make-ahead tips, accurate prep times, and menu ideas make hosting a breeze. Those who follow Kushner online will be pleased with how the collection is assembled and will recognize the rich photography and delectable food styling. Delivered in a well-organized package, the elegant design offers an array of helpful entertaining guides (creating a table-scape; quick and easy snack boards; plating and serving ideas). Throughout Kushner supports her philosophy that sharing food is the best way to “express kindness and generosity”—a warmth that’s reflected in the cookbook’s tone and dishes. Readers might not notice that all the recipes are kosher, as the book opens up Jewish dietary laws to a wider audience. Whether for a weeknight meal or a Shabbat dinner, Kushner’s recipes and passion will help fill the table.
VERDICT This elegant and sophisticated guide to kosher entertaining will bring delight to many dinner parties.
