Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Jamie Geller’s] enthusiasm, her love of food, her desire to provide healthy meals for family and friends…. speak to home cooks at all ages and stages. In a conversational and peppy style, she’s an advocate for kosher, with a perspective that is broadly appealing.” (Chicago Jewish Star)

What sets it apart from other cookbooks… is that it reads almost like a quasi-memoir/family portrait-within-a-cookbook. Like a dish of soup on winter’s eve, it is warm and inviting. (Jewish Press)

“Jamie Geller’s latest cookbook is part family album, part fun cooking ideas, and part like hearing from an old friend… We feel as though we are part of her family as the adorable photographs of her children, husband and delectable food entice us.” (Jewish Voice)

[Jamie] shares a lot more than just stellar recipes. She shares of piece of herself. With each chapter, Ms. Geller opens another door to her life and home, drawing you in like you’re part of the family. (BusyinBrooklyn.com)

From the Back Cover

I was "the bride who knew nothing" . . .

And now I love sharing the joy of kosher cooking with people like me: Busy parents who want to make real food for real families in a snap, and people who want to entertain without slaving in the kitchen, knowing their dishes will always elicit oohs and aahs. Our Sabbath and holiday meals are warm, fun, and flowing with food, family, and tons of guests. Do the math: two weekly Shabbos meals + 26 holiday banquets = 130 feasts per year, not to mention feeding my hungry family every other day of the week. That plus a full-time job should qualify me as some kind of expert in fast, fresh family dinners!

Here in Joy of Kosher I share more than 100 of my absolute best recipes and give each a creative twist: Dress It Up—add some bling for your party table—or Dress It Down and lure your picky eaters to meals they'll beg for again and again. That's more than 200 recipes!

A few of my faves:

  • Crystal Clear Chicken Soup with Julienned Vegetables and Angel Hair (Dress It Down: Chicken Noodle Alphabet Soup)
  • Garlic Honey Brisket (Dress It Down: Honey Brisket Pita Pockets)
  • Miso-Glazed Salmon (Dress It Up: Avocado-Stuffed Miso-Glazed Salmon)
  • Butternut Squash Mac 'n' Cheese (Dress It Down: Mac 'n' Cheese Muffin Cups)
  • Gooey Chocolate Cherry Cake (Dress It Up: Red Wine Chocolate Cherry Heart Cake)

And talk about challah! I give you ten yummy variations, including Sun-Dried Tomato, Garlic, and Herb Braided Challah; Blueberry Apple Challah Rolls; Sea-Salted Soft Challah Pretzel Rolls; and Gooey Pecan Challah Sticky Buns. All that, plus gorgeous photos, wine pairings, time-savers, and my guide to sane, no-jitters holiday menus. I hope you love this book as much as I loved writing it for you!

Joy of Kosher: Fast, Fresh Family RecipesWhenever I open a new cookbook or really any book, I like to read about the author. The author's background gives me a window into where she/he has come from and what might have influenced their writing. Reading the intro of Jamie Geller's newest book: JOY of KOSHER-FAST, FRESH FAMILY RECIPES was certainly elucidating. Jamie has often referred to herself as "the bride who knew nothing". She unabashedly tells the reader, that she grew up on take out, really doesn't like to cook and learned how to be kosher somewhere in her mid twenties.
Jamie Geller has presented us with a beautiful collection of recipes that are perfect for family dinners and company too. Each recipe is offered with an option for family eating and a way to "dress it up" for company. This cookbook is all inclusive. From Challah dough and all the many variations you can make from it, to hors d'oeuvres, entrees, vegetables, salads and desserts- Jamie has it all covered. She gives you holiday recommendations, ways to combine her recipes to make a meal, lists of staples and equipment to keep on hand and several glossaries. My favorite is the "Hebrew, Yiddish, Yinglish" glossary. There is also a Passover substitution list. In addition, Jamie offers wine pairing with each meal. One of the wines she mentions is "W" by Weinstock-a dry white wine that I order by the case. It's very reasonably priced so it's great for cooking and drinking as well.
There are many beautiful photographs in this new book but none more beautiful than the ones of Jamie's family that are interspersed throughout.

I absolutely LOVE this cookbook! I really like that each recipe has an option to either dress it up or dress it down, so you can reuse favorite recipes for everyday or dress them up for special occasions. The pictures are gorgeous and instructions are easy to follow. Jamie's personal stories throughout are hilarious and so relatable. This cookbook is a must have!

Jamie Geller's cookbooks speak to everyone in different ways, but there is a common thread that any home cook can appreciate. Any home cook is cooking and for family and friends - they need recipes that they can relate to, can make simple or fancy, and best of all that are not complicated. It is for these reasons I would recommend purchasing this cookbook.

I am a huge fan of Jamie Geller as I relate to her as a Mom and a home chef. I too went from the bride who knew nothing to becoming an accomplished home chef, thanks to recipe books like this one. As soon as I received this book, my kids and I (my sous chefs) poured over the pages deciding on what to make. We LOVED the pictures. My book was covered in sticky notes from recipes they wanted me to try. Everything I have tried so far has been excellent. I don't have time to stand all day and cook. I just want tasty food that is not complicated to make. This book delivers just that... Try the fish taco's.... One of our favorite recipes. My family highly recommends this book.
