    Excellent kosher cookbook

    Recipes are grouped nicely and easy to find. Recipes are easy to prepare and taste fabulous. I never had a single complaint. There is even a list in the back of the book of modifications needed for those that could be kosher for Passover. I love this book!

    Good, but can be better...

    I think that this cookbook is great but is not for people that work daily. To have this cookbook, you need time and as a daily worker, i did not enjoy this cookbook too much. I enjoyed Kosher By DEsign and Kosher By Design Kids better!

    Over hyped

    This book appears more like a coffee table book with its lavish photo spreads. Again, nothing in here I would bother to make and I am a Jew. I didn't like that most of the chicken recipes are blackened in the oven at like 450+ degrees for like 10 minutes. That does not sound good to me.

    GREAT RECIPES/CONFUSING LAYOUT

    This nicely ring-bound book features wonderful recipes, fabulous photos, and a description of the Jewish holidays. I would not however, recommend it to readers new to Judaism. The 'chapters' are by food category, as opposed to holiday. In other words, if you want recipes for a specific holiday, you have to hunt through the book to find them. For the new learner, who's being introduced to such food terms as kreplach, rugelach and gefilte fish, such a layout could be overwhelming and confusing. I found it so, and I know all the terminology.

    Kosher by Design: Picture-Perfect Food for the Holidays & Every Day

    I eat in a lot of different Jewish homes across the country. It's amazing. So many have bought Kosher By Design and declare it to be the best cookbook they own, kosher or otherwise. Around so many Shabbat tables, I hear people saying, 'Oh, I found this wonderful recipe in the new kosher cookbook!' I'm not much for the kitchen routine, but I love reading the book. And so many of my friends have it, I read it progressively from house to house. I can pick up in Montreal where I left off in Denver! Seriously, though. It's a great book. Must have.

    Kosher by Design: Picture-Perfect Food for the Holidays & Every Day

    This cookbook is the most user friendly I have ever owned. It's like having the author with me as a coach. The recipes are delicious. The pictures are stunning; the commentary on the Jewish holidays is inspiring; the table decor suggestions are imaginative and --- s.i.m.p.l.e. This is a book for anyone looking for easy, creative ways to enjoy really great food. Kosher or not, Jewish or not -- this book has something yummy for everyone. We've had the book in my house for 2 weeks and everyone wants to read it!! It's a cookbook, I tell them. Our kids are really into it. And I'm using it as gifts to family members. Way cool! Kudos to author Susie Fishbein. I'm having more fun in the kitchen now.
