However, if you've got several Kosher by Design cookbooks on your shelf already, you'll find that this Passover edition repeats a great many of the recipes from the others--with the same photographs. And if not exactly copied, many are adjusted only slightly by using matzoh instead of graham crackers. I would have to say that 35% or more of the book are repeats from other editions. I was a bit disappointed to find this out. But I probably would have bought the book anyways. For those of us who have a strictly kosher kitchen, you can't really use your chometz-dik, year-round cookbooks during Passover anyways.
I would recommend it, but with full disclosure.
EDIT: A kind commenter pointed out that the number of repeat recipes is far higher than I estimated. There are 130 old or modified recipes from the Kosher by Design series in this Passover edition, and only 30 new recipes.

Recipes include APPETIZERS (14) - highlights are Salmon Tataki, Tri-color gefilte fish (3 layers, requires salmon for one layer, dill and cucumbers for another, and a springform pan), and Steamed Sea Bass and Savoy Cabbage. Idea: serve the horseradish in a scooped out zucchini slice.
SOUPS (over 18) include creamy peach, carrot coconut vichyssoise, chicken, broccoli and almond bisque, and a thick wild mushroom veloute. In terms of colorful matzo balls, there are tomato, tumeric, and spinach versions.
There are over 20 SALADS, including Seared Ahi Tuna Nicoise; Cucumber Dill; Grilled Beef and Radish; Fatoush; and Mango Tuna with Goat Cheese. The coolest is a Watermelon and Beet Salad served in a martini glass with mint and basil sprigs. There are 27 POULTRY recipes. Includes Chicken Lollipops, Greek Garlic Chicken, Fiesta Turkey Burgers, Pastrami Stuffed Turkey Roast with a Pineapple Glaze, and Ratatouille Chicken Stew.Read more ›
My first impression of it awed me as I glanced upon the sheer beauty of the composition of this work. The cover looked alive and inviting, and the illustrations of the food looked so tempting I simply knew I would have to try each and everyone.
I set out to do just that,but of course time did not permit, so I chose just a few. My first choice was Easy Meat Roast, found on page 138. The ingredients were few, the instructions simple and let me tell you the meat absolutely delicious. I decided to add Hasselback Potatoes, found on page 194 to my dinner and my family loved the entire experience. Yummy! The meal looked like I spent hours on it, but truly it was quite quick and easy to prepare. That is a plus.
This book contains 170 recipes, given to you with simple instructions and beautiful photos that are sure to call to you to give them a try. I highly recommend this wonderful book, and not just for Passover meals, but for every family that wants a tummy delicious encounter with food anytime of the year.
Very well done, exceptional.
