I should probably start by saying I'm not Jewish. I can't attest to the "Jewishness" of this kosher cookbook. My knowledge of kosher laws extends to "no pork" and "no meat and dairy togethah". That is all.But.But, I like to cook, and I like to be able to cook for all of my friends, and if I'm eating something, I don't care if it's kosher, vegetarian, vegan -- or magical, for that matter -- it just has to taste good. So to all of the other non-Jews out there (Gentiles?) who are wondering why the hell you should spend your time reading this review or picking up this cookbook, let me tell you -- because it's awesome.This is a really well put-together cookbook with a good diverse mix of recipes (both in content and difficulty). There is a full-color picture of ever single recipe, and I can't stress enough how impressive and important that is. My mouth watered flipping through this book. I tabbed a lot of recipes as to-make, and that's always a good sign when in the market for a cookbook.The goal of the book, it seems, is to appeal to a younger set, and on that, I think it's fairly successful. I mean, it still may not be the most usable fora college kid in a dorm with only a hot-plate, but the recipes offered are easy to follow, there's a great variety in terms of skill and taste, and there is a section in the back devoted to party planning and bringing it all together. I ¿ this, and I love when cookbooks have this, even if I don't actually need help planning a party or hostessing. Reading through it just gets you in the mood for a little shindig.The recipe I ended up making was a recipe for scones. It was a pretty standard scone recipe, other than that it had an egg wash rather than a cream wash, which I guess isn't that out of the ordinary. I made it for my bookclub's discussion of Soulless (and another member made treacle tart!) Along with the tea and cocoa I brought, it was kinda perfect, and the scones turned out just as scones should (mine were blueberry). I will be making them again, and trying more of the recipes in this book.[Note: I received a copy of this for review.]

If you've ever had a kitchen full of teens crowding your kitchen wanting to bake or cook, you'll certainly be wowed by this cookbook. One of the things that was immediately apparent to me was the wide variety of recipes to suit every palate. For example, there was a fabulous recipe for peanut butter and banana French toast, but also one for a Tex-Mex salad. It isn't always easy to find a cookbook that will please so many people, but this one will. This is a book that you can purchase as an introduction to cooking for your 'tween or give it as a gift for people of all generations. Perhaps you are worried about purchasing a cookbook when you have someone in your household with special dietary needs. You'll be pleasantly surprised when you see colorful arrows directly to the left of each recipe indicating which group of people will not only be able to prepare the recipe, but also eat it. Each category is well defined in the front of the book, giving the young cook enough information to be able to cook for friends with special needs. The recipes, which are well represented in each category include "signs" for these groups. In the front of the book are suggestions for preparation, setting up, cleaning up, shopping, planning menus, equipment needed, and additional notes of "safe food habits." Each recipe is accompanied by a mouth-watering photograph of the finished product. Basic categories include starters, munchies, soups, salads, poultry, meats, fish, pasta, dairy, side dishes, desserts, and some very nice suggestions as to how to create a party using some of these recipes. There are now seven cookbooks in "The Kosher by Design" series. There are more than nine-hundred recipes and soon an index of them will go up on the Kosher by Design Website as a free download. Quill says: This nutritious and delicious variety of recipes is geared toward the younger set, but in my estimation this is not just your average cookbook . . . it's way above average, a cookbook that anyone would love to have!

Susie Fishbein is one wise lady. Not only has she created a cookbook for Kosher preparation of meals, but she has also brought us all up to par on the current trends in preparing meals no matter what age group or style of cooking is involved. This is a wonderfully illustrated book of scores of excellent recipes, each balanced, each accompanied by advice , each nutritionally sound, and each sure to please even the most junkfood addicted palate. She opens this very generous book with guides to preparation, setting up, cleaning up - emphasizing the lack of need for extraneous gadgets to accomplish the finished product of the coming recipes. She then discusses how to shop for the menus in this cookbook, how to deal with special needs diets (vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free) and how to pay attention to ingredients in general. The the fun begins: page after page of easy to follow recipes, illustrated beautifully, for 'starters', munchies, soups and salads, poultry and meat, fish, pasta, and dairy, side dishes and desserts. And to make the book complete for the new young cook she then outlines the indices for creating successful parties. The presentation could not be more helpful and Fishbein's little comments here and there make this a fun book to browse and read as well as to be a solid resource from which to learn cooking. A perfect addition to the kitchen of young people and a fine idea for gift giving! Grady Harp
