Celebrate! Food, Family, Shabbos by Elizabeth Kurtz
to Benefit Emunah of America, Distributed by Feldheim Publishers
We have known and admired the talented Elizabeth Kurtz for over 6 years. She is energetic, creative, a gifted cook, food lecturer, recipe developer, and mother of five. Her blog Gourmet Kosher Cooking pioneered the concept (along with KosherEye) of bringing gourmet kosher recipes online.
Elizabeth’s new book Celebrate! Food, Family, Shabbos is truly a celebration of delicious food and lifestyle. Her dream of writing a cookbook has become a reality, enhanced by the knowledge that the sales proceeds benefit EMUNAH* of America. For Elizabeth, preparing and serving food is all about love; love of family, love of Shabbat and love of delicious food. In Celebrate!, she demonstrates her love of food, family and Shabbat. The recipes are simple enough for everyday and special enough for Shabbos or any holiday.
Elizabeth explains: "The photos are award-winning and the recipes are just what my readers asked for, simple in preparation and beautiful in presentation… recipes in every category from soups, salads, chickens, meats, and desserts, to extra special sections like Kiddush, Shalosh Seudos, and a pantry, all packed with the recipes that are unique to those times."
KosherEye receives many wonderful cookbooks – (hoping to be featured here), but, as we shared with Elizabeth, this one is exceptional. We didn’t want the book to end, and couldn’t wait to ingredient shop and start cooking! The recipes along with their vibrant companion photos and accompanying tips are spectacular. We particularly loved the idea that the book focuses on Shabbos meals, since we are always searching for recipes to make Shabbos special, innovative and delicious, but not difficult.
Along with 200 irresistible recipes, is information and photos about flavor boosting pantry staples, cuts and cooking techniques for kosher meats, favorite basics, and make ahead instructions. Most recipes also offer Passover tweaks.
In our opinion, Celebrate! is a must have addition to any kosher cookbook library, The recipes, tips and information will be helpful to the experienced cook or the new bride. It is a KosherEye "gift yourself, gift others" selection. Each purchase benefits EMUNAH.
