Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

From sophisticated interpretations of traditional home cooking to exotic combinations of subtle flavors, this cookbook provides secrets to the Prime Grill's innovative menu. As a framework for their extraordinary accomplishment of creating a one-of-a-kind kosher restaurant, the authors share their engaging personal stories, including the history of owner Joey Allaham's family and Chef David Kolotkin's experiences working in a kosher kitchen. Mouthwatering signature recipes include Seafood Ceviche, Apricot-Glazed Beignets, Southern Pecan and Chocolate Chip Pie, Prime Grill Rosemary Potato Chips, and a host of dairy-free desserts as well as a foundation of stocks, sauces, and dressings. All are designed to be successful in any kitchen run by the most modest of home cooks.

Owner Allaham realized a dream when, in 2000, he opened the first high-end kosher steakhouse in New York. The elegant restaurant, located in Midtown Manhattan, slowly gained fame for its commitment to quality and flavor while maintaining the strictest kosher guidelines. Serendipity brought these men together, and their creative collaboration has exploded, giving the restaurant a new flavor that focused around taste, quality, and experience found only in the best restaurants. Allaham's passion for well-cut and aged meats, along with Kolotkin's incredible ability to creatively adapt his professional experience to the structures of a kosher kitchen, has brought them national and international acclaim. The Prime Grill Cookbook takes you inside the kitchen of this outstanding restaurant at the forefront of the kosher culinary revolution.

Joey Allaham, a fourth-generation butcher from Syria, brought his meat expertise to the United States in the early nineties and began a journey to change the public perception of kosher dining. He founded a wholesale meat business and recognized the need for a kosher steakhouse. A resourceful businessman with no formal training but very clear ideas, Allaham made his dream a reality and continues to forge ahead in the highly competitive hospitality industry. His well-trained palate and his search for the best meats combined with his passion for excellent service have made him a force to be reckoned with in New York's competitive fine dining scene.

Chef David Kolotkin's first cooking experience was making ice cream in his garage at twelve years old. From this auspicious start, nurtured by the matriarchs of his family and his mentors, Adriano Bokinac and Michael Lomonaco, Kolotkin began his lifelong journey as a culinary innovator. He went on to attend the Culinary Institute of America, graduating with the Most Likely to Succeed award. He apprenticed at the world famous 21 Club under the tutelage of Chef Lomonaco and went on to work many notable restaurants, including Aretsky's Patroon, Butterfield 81, and Windows on the World, before finding a home at the Prime Grill. Working in the challenging environment of a kosher kitchen, Kolotkin's creativity and inventive style have given the Prime Grill an internationally renowned status.

From the Back Cover

About the Prime Grill restaurant:

"Since it was launched in late 1999, the Prime Grill has become the center of a new kind of diaspora power dining-a sort of lunch-time machers' minion where Jewish heavyweights like Ron Perelman and Larry Silverstein kibitz, hondle, and, yes, break bread."
-New York Observer

". . . where Kosher beckons the cool crowd . . ."
-New York Times

Chef David Kolotkin and owner Joey Allaham take readers inside their acclaimed kitchen, sharing enticing recipes and inspired menus from one of the nation's top-rated kosher restaurants.

More than one hundred recipes grace the pages of this eclectic collection, inspired by familiar kosher dishes, regional favorites, and international influences. In The Prime Grill Cookbook, readers will find delicious recipes such as Truffled Deviled Eggs, "Crab" Cakes with Horseradish Aioli, Mediterranean Tuna Tartar, and other original interpretations of classic dishes such as their Coffee Rubbed Flatiron Steak with Stuffed Baked Potato. With every turn of the page, each recipe offers a unique insight into an amazing kitchen that just happens to be kosher. Chef Kolotkin has taken recipes created in a partnership with Allaham and adapted them for the home kitchen. This book will serve as a testament to the versatility and international appeal of modern kosher cooking for everyone's table.

This is by far the best cookbook I have ever owned! The restaurants where these recipes come from are outstanding and to be able to recreate them in my home is so wonderful! I recommend this to everyone. I recommended it to my butcher and even bought another copy to give to my son for Chanukah, which this year starts Nov. 27th and coincides with Thanksgiving.
This is a 5 star+ cookbook!!!!

I found the cookbook to be just average. The recipes included are for foods most people aren't interested in making. There a few that will interest some fans of the Prime Grill, but most recipes won't. In addition, the recipes are too simple! Not simple in the preparation and time needed for the recipes, but for the ingredients used. What makes the Prime Grill stand apart is their dry aged quality meat. If you aren't going to use the same quality meat, fish, etc then this cookbook is meaningless to you.
