Cohen (The Gefilte Variations) celebrates both the variety and spirit of Jewish holidays and the variety of Jewish cooking in this appealing book. Each major holiday throughout the year, from Rosh Hashanah in the fall to Shavuot in early summer, has its own section of recipes, as does the weekly Sabbath; strictly observant Jews as well as those who are not entirely familiar with the religious significance of all the events will appreciate Cohen's detailed comments on their history and meaning at the beginning of each section. Those with less experience in planning big feasts will also be grateful for the variety of menu suggestions that accompany each holiday: Passover seders, a Hanukkah latke party with superb traditional and nontraditional latkes, a vegetarian dinner for Sukkot. Cohen draws on Jewish cuisine from every tradition: Leek Croquettes from Rhodes, stuffed chicken soup from Iran and a pineapple-coconut milk kugel from Bombay are just a few of the pleasantly exotic yet authentic offerings; she also puts new twists on old standards, as with Moroccan-flavored brisket and "deconstructed" kasha varnishkes that feature portobello mushrooms and eggplant in lieu of quantities of fat. Each recipe is helpfully coded to indicate whether it is meat, dairy or pareve, though she often provides variations to accommodate all needs in this book that's enjoyable to read and inspiring to cook from.

The bok could use a few e-mail addresses where one can get kosher foods shipped wit h their price and estimated amount of potage for shipping. Thanks.
The recipes are harvested from everywhere and there are dishes for every part of every kind of meal, festive or workaday. Many are deliciously exotic, a good introduction to Near Eastern and Mediterranean flavors. I've had another printing of this book since 2008 and rereading for this review, was struck by how easy it now is to find any ingredient used in the book -- if Trader Joe doesn't have it, a local supermarket will. Dates, pistachios, pomegranages, feta cheese, plain yoghurt -- it's even easy to find good apples now. Surprisingly, Ms Cohen uses many quintessentially American ingredients: maple syrup, pecans, cranberries, sweet potatoes, native Americans all and mostly used by Americans: a new twist to "International."
It's such a pleasure to have a cookbook written by a real cook. The attention paid to the exact ingredients that will work in the various dishes, and possible substitutes for them, is a real plus and Ms Cohen has obviously made and remade every recipe in the book -- I've never gone wrong with her advice yet.Read more ›
I have a lot more recipes to try...but the ones I have done are among my favorites. And...you don't have to be Jewish to love these foods!
