Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Whatever tribe readers may belong to, they're sure to find a few new favorites (and an auxiliary Jewish grandma) in this terrific collection, which has the feel of a conversation with a caring relative. Authors Marks and Carneiro state up front that they aren't "keeping kosher or following rules" in their compilation of menus, organized by holiday (complete with wine pairings), though they do include a wealth of thoughtful tips for those who prefer to stick by tradition. Yes, brisket, latkes, kugel and flourless Passover Brownies make the mix, but so does a kosher caipirinha (utilizing kosher cachaca). The emphasis is on flavorful home cooking: chicken noodle soup, Swiss steak, mashed potatoes, and a simple ice cream pie will appeal to cooks of any faith. Anecdotes, quirky suggestions (like a list of Chanukah-appropriate hip-hop), and tips for buying and presentation jostle with recipes like a busy, satisfying family dinner, providing new cooks and those intimidated by Jewish cuisine a comforting, familial vibe.

From the Back Cover

Straight from the kitchen of a fun, fabulous Jewish mom and her daughter, Jewish Cooking Boot Camp is a guide to whipping up traditional favorites for a new generation. Handed down over the decades, these recipes and tips will take even the most kitchen-challenged gal (or guy) confidently through the Jewish holidays and other important occasions (such as inviting a significant other’s mother for dinner!). Setting out from basic training, it goes on to cover Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah, Yom Kippur, Passover, and other holidays, and includes special chapters on take-along foods and comfort foods.
 
In addition to more than fifty traditional (and nontraditional) recipes, Roz and Andrea provide expert tips from Jewish bartenders, DJs, nutritionists, and party planners; interviews with rabbis about
creating modern family traditions; inspirational traditions from Jewish families around the globe; and kosher wine pairings. Jewish Cooking Boot Camp takes every last ounce of intimidation out of Jewish cooking while serving up a hearty helping of family, culture, and other flavors to savor.
 
Among the 50+ easy-to-make recipes:
Onion Noodle Kugel  |  Edith’s Red Wine Brisket  |  Spinach Cheese Squares
Blintz Soufflé  |  Honey Cake  |  The Best Flourless Latkes You Have Ever Had
Aunt Frieda’s Passover Nut Cake

This is the perfect book for the young Jewish cook.
Chef 727
Not only are the recipes delicious (I have already tried several), they are very easy to follow.

Since I've gotten the book, I've cooked many recipes (some more than once).

You take chances when you order a book sight unseen.
That being said, I urge readers to use caution with this book, especially if you are planning to prepare a meal according to Jewish Dietary Laws. Many of the recipes are "kosher style" and mix dairy and meat products in the same recipe, or suggest the pairing of a dairy recipe as a side dish to a meat one.
But the worst offense is the recipe for a crab salad that is meant to be served before the Yom Kippur fast. Come on! The author specifically recommends that you eat a specifically non-kosher food before the holiest day of the year. Yes, I know there is fake crab that can be used. But that is not mentioned as an optionin the recipe. And there is another page that lists what foods are kosher and which are not, but it is not referenced on this page.
If this were a regular cookbook that was not titled as "Jewish", I'd just ignore the recipe. But I question why it had to be included in the first place.
With only 50 recipes in the book, it wasn't a great bargain anyway. I got Denise Phillips' new release in the same package. I highly recommend her book as a far better value and more authentic. Go with "New Flavours of the Jewish Table" if you are looking for a brand-new cookbook.

I received this book the other day and couldn't put it down once I started reading it. I can't wait to begin using these recipes. The authors are very witty and quite relatable. I love all of the little quips about their family members and friends. I highly recommend this book to any Jewish girl in her 20's and 30's. It is such a new, fun spin on old family recipes that should be a staple on everyone's kitchen shelf.

This is the perfect book for the young Jewish cook. This book is full of great recipes and I loved the personal style it was written in. The authors welcome you into their kitchens with recipes that have been a part of their family for many years. I LOVED the Chocolate Chip Lace cookies. I made them with my toddler, they were very simple and delicious! They would definitely make a great a addition to any Hanukkah Party. I recommend this book for any young 20 or 30 something hosting their first Jewish holiday. This book would also make a great bridal shower gift for a young Jewish bride.

I was really disappointed by this book. They suggest serving crab dip for pre-Yom Kippur dinner! Many of the recipes and menus mix meat and dairy. Obviously, not everybody keeps Kosher, but if you're interested in either traditional or modern takes on Jewish recipes, there are lots of cookbooks that would be better choices.

When I first received a copy of the new book, Jewish Cooking Bootcamp, I was elated. I love Jewish cooking - from the first bite. Jewish cuisine is first and foremost comfort food to me. Whenever we travel, we try to scout out any Jewish restaurants (I still miss the Lincoln Del, from Minneapolis). Our daughter loves potatoes - and first had them in latkes. So this book was a gift, for sure, to a happy cook!

Jewish Cooking Boot Camp: The Modern Girl's Guide to Cooking Like a Jewish Grandmother is an incredible resource - filled with recipes and culture and traditions. Since I've gotten the book, I've cooked many recipes (some more than once). Truly, it is a treasure.

I was very surprised to see non-Kosher recipes in a "Jewish" Cookbook. I can't imagine that the proverbial"Jewish Grandmother" would mix meat and dairy, or would serve shellfish before Yom Kippur!

Cute title but not really what MY Jewish Grandmother would have cooked! This is a great gift idea for a young bride or young woman just starting out on her own but it is in no way Kosher. The beginning pages go through the basics to always have in your kitchen and the specialty items for entertaining, plus entertaining menus. If you don't mind mixing meat & milk, this is a nice addition to a cookbook collection. I bought this with my non-Jewish daughter-in-law in mind and it's perfect for their home!

I purchased this cook book and have already tried several of the recipes including the mandel bread and cucumber salad. The mandel bread is an absolute favorite each and every time I make it. My family and friends cannot get enough of it! Since I absolutely love cucumbers, I had been looking for a simple yet tasty cucumber salad receipe - now, I finally found it! The book is very well designed and has a very modern yet personal touch! I highly recommend this book!
