I just ordered 5 copies of the book for Passover gifts. . Having written about it, I had the opportunity to test some of the recipes myself and I can tell you they work beautifully and have great cultural and culinary context. A great addition to the rich canon of Jewish cookbooks.

I love Leah Koenig's writing and I am so excited about this book. The recipes are really inviting and accessible. She's got a lot of classics in here like hamantaschen and matzo balls, but also interesting dishes like pomegranate molasses meatballs and Bukharian beef and carrot rice pilaf that are still great for people who want to explore Jewish cooking and/or for kosher eaters. As someone with both Ashkenazi and Mizrahi heritage I feel like there is so much here to explore from both traditions. And I love the freshness and seasonality in her cooking. Thanks for such an inspiring book, I'll be using this one a lot.

Loved the cookbook. I already have 30+ pages that have sticky notes on them so I can easily reference the recipe. I have already made a few recipes for the Passover holiday and will repeat these recipes year round. It's beautifully written and photographed. I have 100's of cookbooks and this is definitely one of the few that will be at the front of the shelf. This cookbook makes a great gift - for someone special or yourself. You don't have to keep kosher to like this cookbook - it's that good.

Fresh, creative recipes that riff off classics. Easy to make and filled with sumptuous photos, this is a cookbook I'll return to again and again. Plenty of vegetarian receipes, too.

It's a unique and tantalizing look at Jewish \cooking for the modern world. I especially love the three different menus for each yom tov. I can't wait to try them.

This cookbook is one of the best I've used. I have tried numerous recipes, and every single one has been good. I especially like the butternut squash and shallot kugel (though made it without the shallots) and the challah, but a bulgar salad was a hit at my house as well. The babka was also nice, though labor intensive. Most of the recipes that I have tried haven't taken that long, with the exception of the baked goods. I would highly recommend this book.

I stumbled across this book in a bookstore during a lunch break and it instantly took me back to my aunt's kitchen where she taught me how cooking essentials and all the traditional Jewish recipes. Koenig made this book incredibly easy for the beginner cook as well as sophisticated for the advanced chefs. Every time I look in this book, I find new recipes I immediately want to try. Luckily, a lot of the recipe ingredients can be found in your pantry or local market, so it's not difficult or too expensive to make any of the dishes. Love love this book and I love making it for friends and family to share!

My favorite recipes so far are "Chicken Schnitzel with Caper Vinaigrette" and the "Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Pecan Streusel" (which I alter a bit by adding Apricots when they are in season). I have also tried the "Black Bean - Sweet Potato Chili", which was delicious. The instructions are easy to follow and the additional information and context are very useful. I keep repeat-cooking and baking these dishes. Thank you Leah Koenig! Please write more cookbooks!?!
