Spice and Spirit is a cookbook that I have owned since I began eating only kosher food. It is great for the novice and the expert. For those that have no experience what so ever in cooking let a lone Kosher cooking this is a great tool. The recipes are not complicated and everything comes out terrific. My husband always asks the same thing every Shabbos "Where did you get this recipe, it's terrific! " I say "Spice and Spirit". Of course.
The recipes range from Jewish classics to International favorites, everthing tested. No complicated techniques required. This cookbook offers everything, Dairy breakfast, Dairy lunch and dinner, Dairy dessert. Meat, Fish, Chicken, Kugels, Salads, Sides, Desserts of all types, confections, relishes and dressings. It's packed! Just like a Betty Crocker.
Plus all kinds of Kashrus Laws and Laws and Minhagim for Shabbos observance and Yomim Tovim. There is also an appendix with lots of useful information.
This is truely a cookbook for every Jewish home, I couldn't get by without it!

The book succeeds admirably in explaining the complexities and nuances of Kosher dietary laws, even to a novice, without oversimplifying or overlooking important rules. It is written from an Orthodox perspective, including special Kosher laws on bread and wine. In addition to a complete cookbook and Kosher dietary guide, this book includes a section on holidays and Sabbath observance which is extremely thorough. I would recommend this book for anyone, but especially for those trying to begin or improve their observance of Kashrut and Sabbath.

I have a lot of kosher and nonkosher cookbooks in my collection, and this is one of the best. I used it quite often to make dinners for the family and guests. The recipes are simple and most of the ingredients can be found in your cupboard. My family especially enjoy the chocolate mousse recipe which is one of our favorite dessert!

Literally, from soup to nuts, every kind of Kosher goody you'd want. The recipies are easy to follow and 99.9999% of the time come out perfect (except the time I forgot to put baking powder in the Carrot Loaf. I ended up with "Carrot Brick," but that was my fault.)

I received a large number of cookbooks as engagement and wedding presents nearly 20 years ago. I gave most of them away when I was decluttering my house. This one is still on my shelf, and still gets referred to several time a year. Much of my "recipe free" cooking is based on recipes from this book that I've made so many times that I no longer need to look them up. I may need to buy a new copy soon as the one I have is falling apart from heavy use.

It also includes some basics on keeping kosher and some basics on "how to cook" which were invaluable to me when I was newly married. I didn't find it too hard to cut the recipes in half or quarter when necessary. I plan to give copies of this book as wedding and engagement presents, since I found it so useful.

I am an excellent cook but new to Jewish culture, dietary law and cooking. I love this book! I have used it every week, especially in preparing my Sabbath meals, since I purchased it. I also purchased the book, "The Kosher Kitchen," and with these two books I feel I am well prepared to prepare and serve foods in the proper and prescribed manner.

This is a wonderful cookbook and has tons of recipes for every occasion! I understand that it is a classic, and I would have to agree. Since I have been cooking for so many decades, I usually don't try new recipes or even purchase new books unless they have photos, but I made an exception in this case. I'm not sorry; the directions are simple enough and the books is set up with so many suggestions, that photos are unnecessary.

I really like the explanations for special Jewish meals and observations, and the traditional meals served. There are lots of suggestions like that that make this cookbook unique and classic. It is a large book, packed with more than just recipes, but information and ideas. I will definitely keep this as part of my library.

I highly recommend its purchase for anyone who wants to learn how to cook and serve great Jewish meals, the kosher Jewish way.

I received this as a wedding gift, and it's the best cookbook. Instead of a book that's filled with a ton of fancy recipes that no one has time to make, this one has that and it has all the basics- kugel recipes, basic challah, chicken soup, baked chicken, chocolate cakes, etc. There is a picture code to let you know which recipes are quick and easy and which take more skill. I use recipes from this book almost every week when cooking for shabbos, and sometimes when I want to try something new, too.
It also has sections explaining laws pertaining to kosher food and keeping a kosher kitchen, as well as helpful hints for each section, such as which types of meat to buy for different kinds of recipes, and how to make a perfect pie crust. I consider this a must for every new kosher cook, and I've bought it for friends as a wedding gift.
