Cook Like a Pro 
Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks
By Ina Garten, Clarkson Potter Publishers 

As we have stated previously, we are unabashed members of the Ina Garten fan club. We admire her on many levels - for her courage to leave behind a flourishing career as a    nuclear budget analyst at the White House, to following her passion and hard work to achieve a wildly successful redirection into the culinary world. In 1978 Ina entered the food world as a gourmet caterer and retailer when she purchased The Barefoot Contessa, a Hampton's Long Island specialty food store. Then we watched, as she became a food celebrity, Food Network star and cookbook author. Along with the gracious sharing of recipes and entertaining tips, we enjoy the warmth she exudes with her friends, colleagues and of course her husband Jeffrey – whom she married in 1968.

"Cook Like a Pro" her 11th cookbook, takes the reader into her kitchen sharing recipes and advice she has gathered over the years.
With no formal training – her success is based on teaching herself culinary techniques, and studying cooking  with icons such as Julia Child. The book includes many favorite, essential recipes, beautiful photos and a treasury of pro-tips focused on  prepping, making, and serving. As Ina says, "You don't have to be a pro to cook like one!"

KosherEye Note:
We love, love, love this cookbook, even though the kosher cook will definitely need to make ingredient substitutions. Be aware that you will have to be flexible and creative to maintain kashrut, but don't hesitate to consider adding this book to your library, or to your cookbook gift list. The photographs provide a feast for the eyes, and the recipes will provide a feast for your guests. Some of the recipes featured in the cookbook can be viewed on Ina's Food Network Show The Barefoot Contessa.

German Jewish Cookbook Cover
The German-Jewish Cookbook

By Gabrielle Rossmer Gropman and Sonya Gropman
Brandeis University Press

Food Tradition is very important to us; Recipes offer a glimpse into the cultural history of people, and their foodways. Through vintage recipes we learn what people ate and how they lived. The German Jewish cookbook accomplishes this. The reader is transported into pre-WWII Germany, and the recipes which traveled with families escaping the war and turbulence in Europe. This cookbook features recipes with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, including soups, challah, vegetable dishes; meats, poultry, fish and desserts, ranging from cold weather comfort food to light summer fare. The authors, the Gropmans - a mother-daughter pair, have celebrated original recipes that Gabrielle remembered from her youth. She arrived in the U.S in 1939.


From the authors: “Some of these recipes come from friends and family; others have been culled from interviews conducted by the authors, prewar German-Jewish cookbooks, nineteenth-century American cookbooks, community cookbooks, memoirs, or historical and archival material. The introduction explains the basics of Jewish diet (kosher law). The historical chapter that follows sets the stage by describing Jewish social customs in Germany and then offering a look at life in the vibrant émigré community of Washington Heights in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s.
The cookbook is illustrated with fifty drawings and photographs, and will appeal to those interested in Jewish German cuisine, how it evolved, and how to replicate these much beloved dishes. The collection is the first German-Jewish cookbook in a century. It is a history and memoir with over 100 recipes. It is  a memorable, informative and delicious window into an important period of Jewish food history.

 Bais yaakov 2 cover

Bais Yaakov Cookbook 2

An Exclusive Collection of Traditional and Contemporary Recipes to Elevate Shabbos, YomTov and The Everyday. Batsheva Weinstein, Editor;  Distributed by Feldheim.

This is the second edition of the series, a follow-up to the very popular original Bais Yaakov Cookbook. In addition to over 150 recipes accompanied by the photos of the talented photographer/food stylist John Uher, the book shares halachic guidelines as they relate to cooking. There is comprehensive culinary information for food preparation, measurement, selection, a food brachos guide, and a fruit/vegetable cleaning chart. 

We think that Bais Yaakov 2 is a “must” have in a kosher cookbook library, appropriate for the newbie homemaker or the seasoned cook. To quote the editors: the purpose of The Bais Yaakov 2 cookbook is “to continue to elevate, inspire and infuse the table with spirituality. This cookbook is a project of the Fund for Jewish Education -- All proceeds go to Tzedakah. 

Enjoy these fabulous recipes from this fabulous cookbook;

Masala Mamas cookbook cover
Masala Mamas
Recipes and stories from Indian women changing their communities
through food and love

A Vegetarian, Kosher Cookbook
Lioness Publishers

Elana Sztokman, Editor

Some years ago Jacob Sztokman was in Mumbai for his position as a marketing executive, and was taken for a visit to the Kalwa slum. There he found that children, as young as five, were working instead of attending school. They needed 60 rupees each (about 80 cents) from working so that they could pay for their food each day. Sztokman went into action. Years later, he is still working to help the children of Kalwa. In collaboration with his wife Dr. Elana Sztokman this cookbook, Masala Mamas, is the latest step in this effort.

Masala Mamas is a cookbook to benefit the families of the Kalwa slum in Mumbai India. The book tells the story of an amazing group of women who are cooking and working to motivate kids to go to school, and encourage families to send them. Through the pages of this meaningful book, you will meet the Masala Mamas, 16 women who live in the Kalwa slum and are dedicating their lives to providing hot meals for kids in school. Early every morning, with love and dedication, they cook hundreds of hot, nutritious meals for the children –made from fresh local ingredients and aromatic spices. The Masala Mamas cookbook shares very personal stories and authentic recipes. As I read it, some sections brought tears, and other sections smiles. The book “is about women, friendship, social change, Indian culture, and most of all love. All through food.”

For more information on how to support this worthy organization, visit GabrielProjectMumbai.org which cares for vulnerable children and their communities in several underserved rural slums of Maharashtra, India. The project is a grassroots response to poverty, malnutrition, ill-health, hunger and child labor in India.

Millennial Kosher Cover
Millennial Kosher ...
recipes reinvented for the modern palate
By Chanie Apfelbaum, Artscroll/Shaar Press

The growing community of Kosher Food Bloggers and writers has made a difference in kosher menus and palates nationally and internationally. How people cook and what people cook has evolved and expanded due to the influence and knowledge of this amazing group of food journalists, online influencers and published cookbook authors. Since its beginning, in 2009, KosherEye has been a leader in its formation. In partnership with Esti Berkowitz and Lois Held, KosherEye developed the annual get together the KosherFEAST Media Dinner. We take pride in this achievement and how it has united, networked and transformed the world of online kosher. We are a food family!

Chanie Apfelbaum, creator of the popular blog Busy in Brooklyn is part of this ever growing group, making us even more delighted to receive her first cookbook! In Millennial Kosher, Chanie has taken her love and passion for cooking, and shared 150 recipes for the contemporary kosher home. She presents a collection of “modern, cultural, and trendy, dishes that reflect her passion for reinventing traditional foods with a Millennial vibe.” Chanie’s photographs, which accompany each recipe, are simply mouthwateringly sensational. We particularly like her chapter on staples and the section on tools and equipment. We found both humor and helpful knowledge in this chapter. Our kosher meat education was upgraded when we read the section “Guide to Kosher Meat Cookery”. Who knew that chuck eye roast, square roast, brick roast, California roast and French roast are likely the same cut, named differently according to the fancy of the butcher.

The recipes are clear, easy to follow and “creatively classic”! A few on our list to try soon-- Mile High S’Mores Pie (sounds great, doesn’t it?) Bubby’s Cabbage Soup with Flanken, Crockpot Pulled Beef, and One Bowl Honey Challah. (We’ll post pictures!)

This book will make a delicious addition to a cookbook library, whether the recipient is a Millennial or a Baby Boomer, or somewhere in between.

From Chanie
“For years I’ve been posting reviews of other cookbooks on my blog, and I never imagined the day would actually come when I’d be able to post my own. Being a cookbook author has been a dream of mine for a long time, but as a mom of five, I just didn’t know how to make it work. I was waiting for the right time – when I had no babies at home, when my schedule would clear up, when I…when I…when I…. Last year, I finally decided that there’s no such thing as a good time to write a cookbook, and if I wanted to truly actualize my dream, I had to just bite the bullet and go for it! …My dreams are coming true and I am so grateful.”
