Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fishbein, editor of the highly popular and successful Kosher Palette, has produced a cookbook focusing on elegant kosher cuisine that is easy to produce by the modern at-home cook. She precedes each section with a description of a festival and its customs, and includes a suggested menu and kosher wine list. Interspersed with vibrant color photographs, the recipes make full use of the growing range of kosher ingredients available, and she has no compunction in saving time and effort by using store-bought sauces in some dishes, such as Tarragon Chicken. Traditional recipes also appear, but are usually given a new twist-the visually pleasing Tri-color Gefilte Fish once again utilizes a store-bought item but enhances both it and the conventional presentation by layering to make a terrine. Useful tips are added where needed, and Fishbein indicates when a recipe is parve (neutral) or dairy. She also offers a comprehensive Passover section that includes a chart of all the recipes that can be used for this festival, with its additional dietary requirements, as well as the steps needed to adapt many others. With kosher cookbooks becoming more sophisticated, Fishbein has produced a volume that straddles that delicate line between modern and traditional and between refined cuisine and everyday ease.

I received this book as a gift. It is so beautiful that I browsed through it a couple of times before I actually picked it up to find something to cook!
Of the recipes I tested and tasted: Sesame Noodles (I made it without the chicken, and it was a yummy side dish - no leftovers there!!), Lemon Bundt Cake (nice, but not "wow"), Chocolate Pecan Pie (now here's a great find - for all those pecan pie lovers out there, who think the traditional recipe is a drop too rich and sweet, here's one for you!! The chocolate adds the right touch to balance the sweetness in this recipe! Still is great with a cup of milk, but it won't leave you nauseous like regular pecan pie!), and the Challah Napkin Rings came out beautiful and tasty!
I'm planning my Shavuos menu now - first on the list are the Baby Blintzes, of course! (One look at the picture and I knew I have to make it!)

I was skeptical about getting this book - just because a book has great pictures in it doesn't mean that the recipes are any good. This book is different. I haven't made a recipe yet that I didn't like. It also turns out exactly as pictured in the book. (I just made the white and dark chocolate mousse dessert and it looks incredible!) My sister-in-law told me that my Sunken Apple and Honey cake looks so good it should be pictured on the cover of a magazine! I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
The recipes in this book are not in the least unique: there is nothing in these books not found in the standard modern cookbooks such as the New Joy of Cooking or Silver Palette. What differentiates these recipes is the superfluous use of packaged foods, such as boxed Italian dressing powder (which is basically salt and common spices), which actually makes them less friendly to the kosher cook since they may not be available supervised. Fishbein puts all her energy into the Design of the food, for instance suggesting that you buy individual pumpkins for each of your 16 sukkot guests in which to serve soup, or that you serve your Shavuot meal entirely out of flowerpots, or that you have different set of dishes for each of the holidays. These little tips do make amusing reading, but for that you can check the book out from the library.

The search for the best Matzoh Ball soup has ended. That along with some of the recipes in Susie's book helped make our Passover dinner the most tasteful and enjoyable ever. The pictures and the easy recipes made the cooking of it a family affair. It will even encourage me to visit Mom more often as she experiments further with recipes in the book.

11 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Mark Twain on January 9, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book is absolutely gorgeous - and would be perfect were it not for the fact that recipes are not always clear. For example, the recipe for Vegetarian Cholent says to add water to reach top of crockpot - but crockpots come in a variety of sizes, so this could turn out very watery and bland if using a much larger pot than the author's. Surely the recipe should either state what size crockpot the author uses, or mention the amount of water she adds, so those of us with different-sized crockpots can make necessary adjustments.

Likewise, it would have been helpful if the recipe gave a hint as to how many people it serves. Neither cholent recipe bothered to mention that.

Susie Fishbein has done it again! If you thought Kosher Palette was it, then you must think twice as Kosher by Design is on top of the world. Gourmet, deliciously appealing mouth watering recipes that are easy as 1-2-3 to make.
This is a perfect gift for your Wife, Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandma, etc.
My own mother hasn't cooked in over 15 years, so I thought I would send this magnificent and beautifully designed cookbook to her. You wouldnt believe it, but she is now going to remodel her entire kitchen! She loves cooking again and my father is ecstatic. If that doesn't say enough about this then I don't know what does.

When looking for a gift for my jewish friend, I came across this cookbook with it's eyecatching pictures, along with it's clear explanation of the holidays and their meanings. This convinced me that this was the perfect gift for her.
The look of surprise and delight on my friends face when I gave it to her confirmed what I had thought when I first spotted it. I know she will enjoy it for years to come.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is in need of a gift for a friend, family member or anyone who likes to cook.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because everyone in the community was gaga over it. What I found when I actually looked at it was that all it is is a bunch of pretty pictures and that's the big wow. Sure, the recipies are good, but they're not "Oh my G-d!" like everyone is about this book. It's got menues and organization tips. All in all, I'd say that this is a good book for someone who is young and just getting married who has never had to cook meals before. If you are an advanced cook who likes to make your own menues, is familiar with other recipies that are similar, and enjoys challenging recpies, this is not the book for you. It was sort of a disapointment. It's mostly hype.
