About the Author

Kim comes from a huge family her Moroccan-born mother was raised in Israel, along with eight siblings. Spending childhood summers in Israel with her extended family, Kim learned to cook by eating, and by participating in family feasts. Hands-on experience with fresh and international ingredients gave Kim an edge when she began her studies at the prestigious Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, where she excelled in their Professional Culinary Program. Her culinary style, much like her life, is a study in Modern Orthodoxy: her kitchen is Kosher, and very much in line with her upbringing and heritage; yet, she is young, and her perspective is fresh and new. She s become known for her healthy, seasonal, and hearty salads made from locally-grown produce not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Kosher cuisine. For Kim, food is tangible and social the effort you put into it comes back to you many times over, in the form of friendships, health, flattery, and fun. The feedback she loves getting most from her client is that they were not only inspired to try her recipes at home, but to make some changes to them it s proof to her that she s right: anyone can cook, and everyone should cook.

I love that this cookbook has such wonderful recipes that don't require too many ingredients or time, yet every time I prepare one, its presentation looks like a work of art! Not only does each recipe have tons of flavor and color but my friends ask for the recipe by the end of the meal! This cookbook has quickly become my go to resource when entertaining my friends, family, or even just myself. Kim Kushner, your cooking style has helped me through many occasions and dinners and I thank you!!

I loved this book! So clean and elegant - the photography (by Andrew Zuckerman) was just stunning, and the layout was perfect. The tagline on the book is "Simple. Beautiful. Kosher" and that's exactly what she has given us.

None of the recipes seem to be too complicated, and what I appreciated the most was the lack of crazy ingredients, and the emphasis on good wholesome foods. Kim Kushner has created some wonderful recipes, with step by step idiot-proof instructions. I could give this book to my 10 year old and he'd be able to prepare the recipes without too much assistance.

Kim introduces every recipe and it's almost as if you can hear her voice talking to you over coffee in her kitchen - you feel her presence throughout. Yes, it's a book of recipes but it's also a peek into Kim's kitchen - where I feel I would be so totally welcomed.

Recipes on our must try list: Tequila London Broil with Mango Chutney, Cinnamon Hazelnut Pavlova with Raspberries and her Broken Dark Chocolate Cake looks as though it would be a winner every time!!

The only negative is that this book is so full of clean white pages that I would get it dirty in no time whilst cooking!!

The Modern Menu is an elegant, beautiful and picturesque cookbook. Kim Kushner has a true talent that is displayed through the recipes she has shared. I have tried and tested many of her recipes and have had positive feedback on all. Kim just gets it right each time. Her food presents beautifully and most importantly it tastes just as good as it looks. In The Modern Menu, Kim has already divided and grouped her recipes for you so entertaining is easier then ever before. Kim's recipes are full of flavor and easy to follow. The Modern Menu has become my go to cookbook!

Format: Hardcover
This a large (8.5" x 11") cookbook with a very large number of beautiful photos. The recipes are interesting yet not difficult. I really enjoy cookbooks with photos as they often inspire me to try a recipe I might have overlooked otherwise and help me imagine how the completed dish would look. I am attaching a typical photo, you can see it by following 'customer photos' link under the main photo. Each recipe starts with a one paragraph description of the recipe, followed by a list of ingredients, and then instructions.

Three of my favorite recipes from this book: Crunch Curry Cauliflower with Tahini and Pomegranates, Balsamic Onion Tarts, and Rustic Apple Tart. All three were pretty simple to make and very tasty. I followed the instruction directly without changes and they were clearly written and accurate.

The recipes in this book are organized in an unusual way. For example, there is a section called "Vibrant" which lists dishes that are bright in color. There is a section called "Crisp" which has dishes that crunch. "Sauce" section has items where a key ingredient is the sauce. I have to say I never think of cooking this way, so I did not find this organization helpful. However, the book also has an index which is very easy to use. The index contains items listed by specific ingredients, or by a theme like "salads","vegetables", or "chicken".

Overall, I liked this cookbook. The recipes are unique, fairly simple, and the photos are beautiful and make you want to try things out.

This book is a winner! Many fresh herbs, coupled with delicious flavors and ingredients. The chicken with pumpkin and figs is outrageous, as are the balsamic onion tarts! Can't wait for her next book... This one is not to be missed!

In very few cookbooks can you imagine yourself making every recipe. However, with the Modern Menu I have already made many and can't wait to make the rest. The cookbook is user friendly and the pictures are beyond incredible. Each recipe is a sure bet, I was not afraid to make a new recipe for a group of 12 coming for dinner, it was a success! Thanks Modern Menu, you have taught me so many new recipes, ingredients and tricks.
