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!
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.
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.
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.
