Mesorah, 2008 (2008)
Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth
usie Feldman, author of the four
Kosher by Design
cookbooks, has created another winner in
Passover by Design
. This gorgeous cookbook sold out the first print run of 20,000 the first day! Wow! Not being Jewish, I am not familiar with the rituals and foods surrounding Passover. I know there are certain restrictions, such as not using leavened products. This for sure raises difficulties in planning and cooking Kosher for these holidays. But not with this beautiful book. Any restrictions are not evident. The dishes would grace any table and tickle any palate without causing guilty feelings. At the same time, these miracles of food are healthy as well as appearing luscious on a plate.
Creamy Peach Soup
, with its surprising addition of jarred baby food carrots, would be the first of the wonderful recipes I want to try.
Roasted Garlic Chicken with Dried Fruits and Nuts
looks too good to eat, as does
Rack of Lamb with Fig Marsala Sauce
. Never would have thought of
Chardonnay Poached Salmon
, which looks delicious. Fritatta is always a favorite of mine –
Spinach Cheese Fritatta
will definitely be a hit when I serve it. How about
Veal Scallopini with Kumquats
? Neat, hunh?
Crispy Chicken Lollipops
would be popular with the kids. And for an all time favorite of mine, vegetables, here are
Glazed Roast Vegetables
. The desserts look terrific. Clamp your eyes on
Flourless Chocolate Torte
Chocolate-Drenched Stuffed Fruit
. To die for.
his lovely book is too full of great recipes to list them all. Acquire your own copy and start cooking. Doesn't matter what your persuasion. To enhance the presentation of the food, there are also many decorating and entertaining ideas. Over a hundred and thirty
Kosher by Design
favorites have been reformulated and retested for Passover. Thirty brand new recipes, with over forty new photos, prove how elegant food can look and how scrumptious it can taste.
