Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Pastry expert and baking instructor Shoyer proves that readers don't need to deprive themselves of sweets just to keep kosher in this outstanding collection for all seasons and faiths. Bakers with access to parve (kosher) versions of cream, cream cheese, and other key ingredients (tips and name brands are provided) will find a litany of recipes for Passover, Seder, and other special occasions. Yes, there are Babkas, Rugelach, Hamentaschen, and Challah, but there is also a rich Chocolate Mousse Truffle Cake, easy and impressive Cinnamon Palmiers, classic French Macarons, a Pistachio and Raspberry Tart and the ingenious Scones au Chocolate, virtually all of which are within the reach of most bakers and budgets. Grouped by effort, from quick desserts requiring only one-bowl (Amaretto Cookies, for instance) to more advanced dishes like Coconut Cake with Lime Filling, Shoyer gives bakers plenty of options for all tastes with copious instructions and photos throughout. Simple but crucial tips like keeping a few sticks of margarine in the freezer so it'll behave more like cold butter when it's time to make pie or tart dough ensure dishes turn out the way they were intended, making this a can't-miss collection of classics. Photos.

Review

“Amaretto cookies, challah beer bread pudding with caramel sauce, and chocolate babka are among the delectable desserts featured in this beautifully illustrated cookbook. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Both novice and experienced cooks will enjoy having this book in the kitchen.”—Jewish Book World


“The Kosher Baker offers a wonderful range of recipes that will delight both new and experienced bakers. The book contains over 160 recipes, all of which are pareve (dairy-free), making them good options to serve after any kind of meal. . . . This book is a wonderful addition for the cookbook shelf for all community, public and synagogue libraries.”—American Jewish Libraries


“It’s a terrific cookbook and the cinnamon bun recipe was a winner, and not too difficult to make.”—A Kitchen in Brooklyn


“Delectably delicious desserts (all pareve!) Plus: It’s enhanced with gorgeous photos and a pleasing design.”—Chicago Jewish Star

I was waiting for this book to be released ever since I heard about it, and I was not disappointed. I'm not the most accomplished baker out there, but I was able to follow along and bake some desserts that tasted so good that no one (especially myself!) believed that I actually made them.

The book is organized into sections by the amount of prep time needed for each recipe, which is especially helpful if you need to make a dessert on short notice and want to try something new. The steps are well described and are pretty easy to follow, and the accompanying stories and descriptions of each item are fun to read.

My favorite recipes so far are "Bubba (Jam Button) Cookies", "Scones au Chocolat", "Almond Tuilles", and "Everyone's Favorite Chocolate Cake."

The pictures of the desserts are truly mouthwatering, and the black/white photos detailing the more difficult steps make the book that much easier to understand.

Finally, I am in debt to the author for giving the best description I've seen of how to caramelize sugar for Crème Brulee. I never had gotten it right before (although, like her children, I'm always happy for the excuse to play with a blowtorch in the kitchen).

A great addition to my cookbook shelf!

This book is very good for pareve dessert ideas from quick and simple to very fancy. I turn to it on a fairly regular basis. My one BIG dislike is the constant use of margarine, margarine, margarine, which is so unhealthy.

This is a terrific book with delicious yummy desserts. The book has three sections so a baker can select level of difficulty. The photographs are beautiful and many of the recipes are divine. I absolutely recommend this book to any kosher or dairy free baker. Get baking

I love to bake, and this is a great addition to my cookbook shelf! The book is very well organized and the recipes are very clearly written. I especially appreciate the b/w photos showing how to do tricky procedures and the instructions for storing and freezing each cake. Plus, the stuff is delicious! Even if you are not a kosher baker, buy this book--you won't regret it.

I was disappointed to find that the recipes in this book rely on too many ersatz substitutions for real dairy. I don't need a cookbook to tell me how to use margarine or fake cream instead of the real thing. I was hoping for creative, dairy free, but healthy recipes.

I have been a "kosher baker" for almost 30 years and thought there was nothing new under the sun. How wrong I was! I have made two recipes already (only recieved the book last Wednesday) and they were terrific!
The book itself is lovely, the recipes are artful and the directions are very clear and detailed enough that even a beginning baker should not have trouble! All in all - I (and my family) are very happy with this purchase!

I eat both kosher and dairy free, and this is a great resource for developing a selection of desserts we can have with Shabbat dinners. The book utilizes lots of more healthy ingredient choices as well, such as almond flour. Those who are allergic to dairy will love this cookbook...and I hate cookbooks.

A very useful, practical book. All the recipes are parve. There is a separate section for Passover. The cake I made was easy to make and was well received by my guests who were impressed. I think I shall be using it quite a lot.
