Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The 175-plus recipes in The Great Chefs of America Cook Kosher prove that a kosher kitchen can provide food lovers with a wealth of creative contemporary pleasures. There are earthy dishes such as the Warm Leek and Potato Soup from Campanile in Los Angeles and Sweet Potato Salad from Chris Schlesinger's East Coast Grill in Boston, and more elegant flavors such as Dover Sole Poached in Vermouth from Georges Perrier's Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia. Mostly, this is flavorful, satisfying food for both family and company meals.

The value of some recipes in this book is that they come from chefs whose restaurants are now closed or who have moved on to other work. For example, there are entries by Joyce Goldstein, formerly of Square One, Barbara Tropp of the China Moon Cafe, whose San Francisco restaurants are now closed, and by Deborah Madison, from her time spent cooking at Café Escalera in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The sections on salads and side dishes and on desserts include particularly unexpected choices, such as Grilled Onion Salad with Shaved Parmigian, Sweet Potato Salad, Cranberry Linzertorte, and Nectarine Blueberry Blintzes. Each recipe in the book is marked to indicate if it is dairy, meat, or parve. The spiral binding makes this handsome book easy to use. Its sales benefit the Jewish National Fund. --Dana Jacobi

More About the Author

For the last 30 years, Karen has been a writer, consultant, and educator whose articles on wine and food have been published in more than 50 United States magazines and newspapers including The New York Times, Food & Wine, Saveur, and Town & Country. She is the author of the award-winning book, The Wine Bible, a best-selling wine book in the United States that has sold more than 450,000 copies since it was released. Ten years in the making, The Wine Bible has been called the most comprehensive and authoritative book on wine written by an American author.
Karen is the host of Emmy-award winning Wine, Food & Friends with Karen MacNeil, the first television series on wine in the United States. This thirteen-part series reached a national audience on PBS. In 2006 her companion book, Wine, Food & Friends, was released.
An educator at heart, Karen is the creator and Chairman of the Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies at the Culinary Institute of America in the Napa Valley. The multi-million dollar wine center has been called the 'Harvard of wine education.' In 2007, she launched the Napa Valley Wine Educators Academy, a global education initiative that attracts wine instructors from all over the world to the Napa Valley for a week of intensive study. She acts as the Academy's creator and director.
Karen conducts wine seminars nationwide for individuals and corporations including Oracle, American Express, Lexus, Merrill Lynch, General Electric, Time Inc., NBC, Viking, and J.P. Morgan. She is also a wine consultant for Singapore Airlines and Sunset Magazine.
In March 2008, Karen launched her website on erobertparker.com, where she provides online wine education, food and wine pairing strategies, and video interviews and tastings with the icons of the wine industry.
In 2004, Karen MacNeil received the highest honor awarded to a wine professional in the United States when the James Beard Foundation named her Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional of the Year. The following year, she was named 2005 Wine Educator of the Year by the European Wine Council. Past recipients of the Council's awards have included journalist Morley Safer (60 Minutes), filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, and winemaker Robert Mondavi. In 2007, Karen was honored with the Wine Literary Award by the Wine Appreciation Guild for her substantial contribution to the literature of wine, joining laureates such as Hugh Johnson, Robert M. Parker, Jr., and Jancis Robinson. The International Wine & Spirit Competition recognized Karen as 'the voice that has most effectively communicated wine or spirits to the public in the past year' by awarding her The 2008 Vinitaly Trophy for Communicator of the Year. In a profile featured in Time Magazine in 2004, Karen was named America's "Missionary of the Vine." She holds an Advanced Certified Wine Professional Degree.
