Clarkson Potter Mar. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9780593232613. $37.50. COOKING
Apfelbaum (Millennial Kosher) slogged through the chore of cooking as a new mom until she discovered family recipes and the artistic nature and creative outlet found in her kitchen preparing Shabbat dinner. In her new cookbook, Apfelbaum walks readers through kosher practices and explains the differences between Jewish and kosher foods. Recipes that are rooted in tradition come with plenty of twists like miso matzo-ball soup. Folks who don’t follow a kosher diet will still enjoy the big flavors and may be pleasantly surprised at how many meat-free options are on offer. Bright food photography and Apfelbaum’s easygoing style will attract new cooks and charm readers who are already comfortable at the stove. This title will be in high demand by those who keep kosher; however, also consider this for the collection because of its practical modern approach, a natural tendency to meat-free cooking, and flavorful recipes.
VERDICT Fans of Apfelbaum’s popular blog Busy in Brooklyn already know this is a must-have cookbook for kosher kitchens, but it’s also a breath of fresh air for cooks looking for big flavors and a fun voice.
