It is not often that I read a cookbook cover to cover in one sitting, but I couldn't put this one down. First, there is the beauty of the book, then the photos by Moshe Wulliger, then the clever &meaningful chapter headings, and the crisp clean fonts. It is simply a pleasure to read, and to cook from!. The recipes, there are 250, are creative , mostly simple and easy to follow.
Even the "tips" (86 of them) are chock full of information, many that a seasoned cook like me found helpful. Cinnamon and ginger are very compatible! Turmeric stains hand....Wear gloves! Peel your celery; no one likes to eat strings. There are 86 more tips/hacks just in the book's introduction. And, most every recipe has a fabulous photo , and her tips & tricks. The recipes are approachable and delicious.
Danielle lives in Jerusalem, and is well known for her popular blog/website peaslovencarrots.com, and her @peaslovencarrots on Instagram. (with over 50,000 followers) She was born and raised in Long Island into a mixed Moroccan and Ashkenaz family. She moved to Israel shortly after her wedding to Eli. Her love of food has attracted people from all walks of life, and levels of cooking. She particularly is known for wandering Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda Shuk, where she greets old and new friend, vendors and shoppers.
Treat yourself, or treat others. If you are searching for a hostess gift for Yom Tov, I highly recommend this cookbook. As Danielle says: All you KNEAD is Love, and I love this cookbook.
