Mazel Tov

Mazel Tov is a collection of Jewish recipes and profiles of celebrated chefs from around the world. The book divides 21 chefs into 3 regional groups: Middle East, Old World and New World. American readers may recognize chefs Molly Yeh (Girl Meets Farm, Food Network), Leah Koenig (author of "The Jewish Cookbook", et.al.), and Adeena Sussman (author of "Sababa" and "Cravings" with Chrissy Teigen). Mazel Tov will introduce readers to potentially unfamiliar names, such as the Ardinast brothers in Germany, Gil Havov in Israel, and Jacob Kenedy in London. Each profile tells the story of how these chefs came to cooking. They talk about the people in their lives who influenced their cooking most, or how the region provides ingredients that give their recipes a new twist. The book includes recipes for pickles, breads, and gefilte fish. Some dishes and accompaniments, like pan cooked fish, and sauces are influenced by Tunisian and Yemeni grandmothers. Other recipes include zhug, kubaneh, carrot salad, gefilte fish, kreplach, borscht, pickles, many with little tweaks and updates from the chef.What sets these recipes apart from traditional Jewish recipes is the multicultural chefs who modernize them with current popular ingredients or flavors. Their regional influences create inspiration for home cooks in the US to try updated versions of popular traditional recipes. It also introduces traditional Jewish dishes from regions that might not be familiar to American Jewish tables.

Jewish Traditional Cooking

They also happen to be kosher. In this book are all the recipes you need for successful shellfish- and pork-free home entertaining, be it for a Jewish holiday or a workaday dinner.

Kosher Style

For the bubbes and the balabustas, the keepers of Jewish kitchens and the enthusiastic neophytes, comes a cookbook that celebrates how many Jews eat today. In the Jewish culture, as in many others, bubbes, saftas and nanas are the matriarchs of the kitchen and thus the rulers of the roost. They are culinary giants in quilted polyester muumuus and silk slippers who know how to make the Semitic linchpins cherished from childhood--the kugel, the gefilte fish, the matzah ball soup and the crispy-skinned roasted chicken. They all have their specialties but, of course, they won't be around to feed us forever, and that will be a loss indeed. But it will be an even bigger loss if the recipes we grew up on pass away with them, along with those special connections to our past. That's what prompted Amy Rosen, journalist and cookbook author, to spirit the classic recipes from her grandmothers and other role models into the 21st century. All of the dishes in Kosher Style are inspired by the tables and tales and chutzpah of the North American Jewish experience. They also happen to be kosher. In this book are all the recipes you need for successful shellfish- and pork-free home entertaining, be it for a Jewish holiday or a workaday dinner. From crave-worthy snacks to family-size salads, soulful mains to show-stopping desserts, all of the recipes are doable in the home kitchen and are clearly marked as either a meat dish, dairy dish, or pareve (neutral). Think: Lacy Latkes & Applesauce, Sour Cream & Onion Potato Knishes, General Tso's Chicken, and Toblerone-Chunk Hamantaschen your family will plotz over. In addition to the classics, Amy has included some of her favorite modern recipes, like a Quinoa-Tofu Bowl with Greens & Green Goddess Dressing, Honey-Harissa Roasted Carrots and a Crisp Cucumber & Radish Salad. Kosher Style is for anyone who likes to cook and loves to eat, and it's especially for those yearning to create new shared memories around a table brimming with history, loved ones and maple-soy brisket.

The Joys of Jewish Preserving

A celebration of delicious foods from Jewish cooks.

The Joys of Jewish Preserving

Learn about one of the most vital subtopics in Jewish cooking: preserved foods Jewish cooks, even casual ones, are proud of the history of preserved foods in Jewish life, from the time of living in a desert two millennia ago to the era in which Jews lived in European ghettoes with no refrigeration during the last century. In a significant sense, the Jewish tradition of preserved foods is a symbol of the Jewish will to survive. About 35 of the 75 recipes in this book are for fruit jams and preserves, from Queen Esther's Apricot-Poppyseed Jam or Slow Cooker Peach Levkar to Quince Paste, Pear Butter, and Dried Fig, Apple, and Raisin Jam. About 30 are for pickles and other savory preserves, including Shakshuka, Pickled Carrots Two Ways, and Lacto-Fermented Kosher Dills. The remaining 10 recipes bear the tag "Use Your Preserves," and these cover some of the ways that preserves are used in holiday preparations, like Sephardic Date Charoset, Rugelach, or Hamantaschen. The book often highlights holiday cooking, because there are many Jewish readers who cook "Jewish food" only on holidays. Many recipes are the author's own creations and have never appeared before in print or online. With terrific color photos by the Seattle photographer Leigh Olson, rich and detailed background info about Jewish food traditions, and, above all, with trerrific and tasty recipes both sweet and savory, this book is a celebration of some of the best foods Jewish cooks have ever created.
