Every cookbook tells a story and Todd and Ellen tell theirs in chatty, interview-style at the beginning of each recipe. Their stories and memories are peppered throughout the cookbook. The table of contents and recipes in the cookbook are organized by season and then by meal (e.g. brunch, starters, lunch, dinner, sides, desserts). Each recipe is also labeled in one of three categories: meat, diary, mixed and parve. The ingredients are separately delineated and listed in the order they are used in the cooking instructions which are clear and easy to follow.
There are two sections at the end of the book. The first is a Holiday Menu section with menus for the four most important Jewish holidays followed by a Chef’s Appendix with recipes for spice blends, sauces and condiments as well as techniques used elsewhere in the cookbook. Many of the recipes have an endnote explaining how to make the dish parve so that it can be served with other dishes in the book. And when it comes to cookbooks, the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” is most fitting. A majority of the recipes in this cookbook also include a beautiful full-color photograph of the completed dish.
