Top Customer Reviews
Kosher by Design Entertains, on the other hand, was disappointing. Many of the recipes seem to be more complicated versions of recipes I already have, and the results are often mediocre. For example, the Balsamic-braised roast is okay, but I have a recipe for Pot Roast in Wine Sauce which is nearly effortless and tastes, if anything, better. I have a Butternut Squash soup recipe which, in my opinion, is way more interesting than the Sweet Potato Soup she raves about, not to mention easier.
I was disappointed in the lack of originality of many recipes. Recipes like "Angel Food Cake," "Apple Kugel," and "Yellow Split Pea Vegetable Soup," while presentable, are not exactly the unique recipes I've come to expect from Susie.
Many of the recipes, in addition to being gratuitously complicated, require equipment that I have neither the budget nor the kitchen space to purchase. I suppose this would not apply to people whose kitchens are not kosher, but as a kosher cook I just can't see investing in a food processor to be used only for meat recipes, or a mini-bundt pan to be used only for dairy recipes.
On a more positive note, the photography is beautiful and the party pages are a lot of fun. Although I'm not the type to throw these kinds of parties (and who is, really -- how realistic are those complicated menus if you're serving a crowd of people?), it's fun to fantasize and enjoy the beautiful pictures.Read more ›

Though I have not completely read the book the recipes are different; visually the book is beautiful but, as always, I would prefer a spiral bindingPublished on September 27, 2012 by C. Goldsmith
