Editorial Reviews

Review

“Cooking from this book will help anyone who wants good, healthy kosher food enjoy a good meal.” (Barbara M. Bibel - Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter)

About the Author

Lévana Kirschenbaum has twenty-five years of experience as a chef, caterer, and teacher and is the author of Lévana Cooks Dairy Free! Natural and Delicious Recipes for Your Favorite “Forbidden” Foods and The Whole Foods Kitchen. She lives in New York City.

More About the Author

When Levana opened her eponymous restaurant with her husband and two brothers-in-law in the late 1970s, all Kirschenbaums were perfectly aware they were facing a hard sell: introduce fine kosher dining to the Kosher public, who until then was content either eating at home or grabbing a bite in the rare joints that served institutional old world treats. The general prediction was that the presumptuous idea would fall flat on its face.

Undaunted by being the trailblazers of the trend, Levana and her partners surrounded themselves with the best chefs, developed the most delicious dishes and waited patiently until the idea of upscale kosher caught on. The rest, as we all know, is history: The kosher food and wine market has experienced a veritable explosion and occupies pride of place among the most prestigious competitions. Many luxury kosher restaurants have opened and thrived since Levana's pioneering days, bearing out the dictum that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Although Levana Restaurant closed its doors after thirty exciting years, her former partner Sol Kirschenbaum, co-owner of the wonderful Nobu Teaneck Restaurant, still runs Passover programs in three of the world's most prestigious Fairmont Hotels Passover Programs.

Okay, here is the third Levana Kirschenbaum cookbook (buy the other two before they go out of print also). If you are allergic to or can not eat dairy products, you can be fortunate to have Levana in your life. Her recipes are mouth watering and her desserts are just "beyond." Levana uses ingredients that promote health and are so good. My wife has made her non-dairy cheesecake. Even dairy eaters love it. She has also made about 8 other desserts and smoothies by Levana. They are both very good, good for you, and do not leave you feeling like a blimp afterwards.

Levana's cookbook is my new favorite. She really makes it easy and educational to cook fast and healthy! Part of her speed is using the food processor for just about everything. My only gripe is that I'm a carb counter NOT a calorie counter and some of her "healthy" recipes are VERY high in carbs even though she is using all natural ingredients. I would highly recommend this cook book. It's an investment as far as I'm concerned and a great teaching tool :)

The introduction to this cookbook is phenomenal. It is great information presented in a fun to read and humorous way. The common sense and down to earth approach to healthy eating found in this book is great. Anybody would bebefit from reading it. The cookbook's recipes are practical to create and delicious. A true masterpiece. It is the best we found in a all around healthy cookbook and we love it. A staple in our home.

I have been enjoying Lévana's delectable cuisine for over 20 years, and I can't tell you how many times I have said to myself, "There's no way that she can top this culinary masterpiece."

But when I treated myself to "The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen," her third tour de force (I own the hardcover book AND the extraordinarily convenient e-book version), I shook my head in wonderment and conceded that Lévana has outdone herself yet again.

Recipe after recipe has me smitten, each one so easy, so elegant, so scrumptious and so healthful - NOT loaded with sugar! It's hard for me to choose a favorite, so I'll list just three:

* Fruity Shallot Dressing
* Gluten-Free Bread and Challah Rolls
* Roast Beef with Wild Mushroom Sauce

Oh, and did I mention how much I appreciate Lévana's plentiful gluten-free and dairy-free recipes?

Treat yourself to "The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen." You deserve it!

Tasty recipes easy to follow, but hard to look up certain things on Kindle version. Would recommend paper back version.
