Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
Although I am not Jewish, this cookbook piqued my interest, and boy am I glad it did! What a fabulous find. It also happens to be #7 on the NYT “How To” bestseller list… and it was just released on March 9, 2021.
I like it so much first of all, because it has such tempting recipes and the photos are just beautiful! You’ll want to prepare each one.
Another reason I like it, is it’s Jew-ish! Cute play on words. Some recipes are Kosher, can be adjusted to be Kosher, and several are also a bit more relaxed so to speak. All are delicious!
I made the Apple & Honey Baked Brie, it was so beautiful and so delicious. It disappeared almost immediately! I didn’t even get the opportunity to take a photo. I’ll make it again soon and post a photo. The recipe calls for phyllo dough, but I was running out of time before my family was coming over, so I substituted puff pastry, and it was beautiful and delicious. I’m looking forward to preparing it with phyllo.
The book begins with a bit of background from the Author, Jake Cohen, and it’s quite interesting. He explains his love for cooking, his go-to recipes for different occasions…. has a nice conversation with the reader of how to entertain with simplicity, imagination and confidence. I enjoy his writing style.
The photographs, by Matt Taylor-Gross are so utterly tempting, I dog-eared nearly the entire book to jump to recipes I want to make first!. The visual impact of the photos really gets your mouth watering and desire to cook the recipes super revved up.
With both the Jewish, and Christian holidays coming up, there are so many festive recipes to prepare that will not only broaden your repertoire, but your tastebuds and guests will thank you too!
I hope you give it a go, and enjoy it as much as I do!
