Title: Kosher Elegance


Title: Kosher Elegance


Author: Efrat Libfroind


Publisher: Feldheim


 


 


   Kosher cookbooks have come a long way to being what women need. Flimsy paperbacks and poorly bound hard covers with yellowed, deteriorating pages that kept falling out have become beautiful, helpful and long-lasting. With Kosher Elegance, author Efrat Libfroind brings classic culinary skills to the table with clear directions and illustrative photos that portray aroma and taste. You’ll want to eat the pictures!

 

   The average Jewish female first tries her hand at cookery as a child. Many young ladies in the making will be able to succeed with adult assistance and the white chocolate and fruit cream dream on page 132. Their mothers will be hooked on rosemary cream cones at page 206. Once they’ve tasted those sweets, it’ll be time for dessert: meals to make everyone’s mouth water.

 

   Chicken basil cranberry rollups make you want to hurry up the holidays. They’re packed with good-for-you nutrition, beautiful to display, and satisfying. Vegetarians can enjoy meals of eggplant rollups with cashew, cheese and nut fillings, fried cannelloni filled with zucchini cream (yes, zucchini cream) and exotic cabbage salad among other appealing entrees.

 

   Beef, fish and poultry dishes abound with flair. Potato-chip chicken, stir-fry, sandwiches and skewered delights fill other colorful pages. The meals will appeal to diners of various ages and preferences. The at-a-glance photos inKosher Elegance will clue you in to that.

 

   It’s not hard to imagine someone opening a four-star restaurant or gaining a reputation as a fine cook based on the entrees in Kosher Elegance. The recipes are in chapters entitled “Sophistication,” “Occasions,” “Brunch,” “Hors D’oeuvres” (now you know how to spell it), “Layers,” “Simplicity,” “Sushi,” “Temptation” (that pretty much describes the whole book), and “Chocolate.” Study them to assess which ingredients and tools you’ll need to have in the kitchen when you prepare them. You might even indulge in what I did by buying pretty dishware for serving up specific selections.

 

   Feldheim bound the book to last a few generations. Be sure to cover it with weighted page protectors made for recipe books. Your sous-chefs de cuisine (kitchen helpers with fancy titles) and descendants will appreciate that.

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable.

Title: The Koren Ethiopian Haggada Journey to Freedom: Celebrating Ethiopian Jewish History, Traditions & Customs
Editor: Rabbi Menachem Waldman
Publisher: Koren Publishing

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
