Format: Hardcover
Winner of the National Jewish Book Award 2000 (awarded March 2001). Ms Levy is a syndicated columnist with the LA Times and an experienced cookbook author. Her book contains new and classic Jewish recipes for life and nearly every holiday and Shabbat. It also includes 23 sample menus. Each recipe is tagged with either a (P)areve, (M)eat, or (D)airy tag. Chapters include those for Passover, Shavuot, the High Holidays, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Purim, Shabbat, and Appetizers, Salads, Soups, Dairy Specialties, Fish, Poultry, Meats, Vegetarian and Pareve Main Courses, Veg. Side Dishes, Noodle and Pasta dishes, Rice and Grain dishes, Breads, Desserts, and a section of basics, including flavorings, sauces, and 10 different types of stocks. Recipes among the 1,000 that I found most interesting including Persian Pear and Banana Haroset for Pesach; Farefl Stuffing with leeks and Carrots; Passover Turkey Schnitzel (incorrectly tagged as Pareve; it is meat); Onion Matza Brei; Spinach and Cottage Cheese Noodle Kugel; Macaroni and Cheese Kugel; Beet Salad with Apples and OJ; Gefilte Fish; Sea Bass with Saffron and Tomato Sauce; Turkey Tzimmes with Sweet Potatoes; Adi Levy's Kibbutz Honey Chicken (you partially roast it, then glaze it with soy and honey); a Meingue Topping; Sephardic Spinach Cakes; Queen Esther's Salad (lettuce, nuts and seeds to eat in the palace); Haman's Fingers; Alsatian Jewish Sauerkraut with Meat; Alsatian Kugelhopf cake; Mock Chopped Liver (one with cashews, one with lentils); Spicy Moroccan Fish Stew; Chicken with Olives; a Friday night Chicken with Cumin Tumeric and Pepper; two dafinas and eight cholents; Miami Style Sweet Potato Puree; at least six chopped liver recipes, 7 hummus, 7 knish, 6 matzo ball (one which is matzo and cholesterol free), 13 challah, 8 bagel, 4 pita, one dozen blintzes, and 5 potato salad recipes; and one for Egyptian Jewish Okra Salad. Now you can see why it won the award.

A very comprehensive and contemporary cookbook featuring traditional kosher cuisine and new classics. Includes all types of kosher cuisine (Sephardic, Ashkenazic, European, etc.). An excellent all around cookbook to have--our family cookbook "bible". I am not generally too fond of her cake recipes, but the "My Favorite Cheesecake" is fabulous! A must for the modern kosher cook!

Being the owner of over 100 cookbooks, it is rare when I find one that piques my interest as well as my palate. Faye Levy has done it again with this new addition to her stable of Kosher cookbooks. If you are looking for that "special" recipe that reminds you of the one that momma used to make or looking to try something to satisfy a more modern taste, chances are that you will find it here.

This is a very large collection of Jewish recipes grouped by the holiday. I find this very helpful. Particularly helpful is the section on challah. She includes recipes and directions for three methods of bread making.There are personal tidbits about the recipes also. This is a must -have for any person who wants to make Jewish food. I am really thrilled to have it and the seller sent it quickly, right in time for the Jewish New Year! The book has no pictures.

We have several of Faye Levy's cookbooks. I'm not sure this is my favorite; I probably prefer the more expansive layouts of some of her others. But we sure enjoy her recipes--probably the best blend of good taste and relative ease of preparation among Israeli-style Jewish cookbooks.

I have searched for Faye's email address to no avail so this is a good option too... I hope she reads this. The challah (special bread eaten on the Jewish Shabbat) recipe in this cookbook is the best I've ever made. It's easy to work with the dough (usually:) and always gets rave reviews! Actually, people are always somewhat shocked by how good it is because it isn't often you taste a challah THAT good!

I have tried quite a few challah recipes over the years and this one is definitely the best so far.

Thanks, Faye, for an amazing recipe!

We had been to a friends house who had prepared a dish from this cook book. Since we liked it so much we tried to find another copy. It is great. All or most of the recipes have a letter to signify for Passover, meat, dairy (which is handy for glancing through for something new)Latkes, potato soup, and lentil soup are Great.

This was the first cookbook I bought when I decided to begin keeping a kosher home. It is now falling apart, I've used it so much! The recipes are consistently good, and easy to make at home, unlike some books where the recipes sound good but turn out poorly, or require difficult to find ingredients.
