Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Assuming that her readers are already familiar with kosher cooking, Zeidler (The Gourmet Jewish Cook; Master Chefs Cook Kosher) sidesteps the specifics of ritual meal preparation and offers easy-to-prepare dishes that will please hungry family members in a hurry. Key to quick kosher cuisine, she says, is a well-stocked and organized pantry and refrigerator, plus learning how to perform a number of kitchen tasks simultaneously. Most of Zeidler's dishes are lighter than traditional kosher fare, with only a handful relying on meats (which usually take a longer time to cook). Vegetable dishes include Mashed Potatoes and Green Cabbage, Potato Latkes with Chopped Olive Spread, Spinach with Anchovies and Pine Nuts, and Balsamic Glazed Carrots. Zeidler offers a surprising assortment of entrees: Halibut with Kumquats and Passion Fruit; Chilean Sea Bass with Tomato-Fennel Stew; Skillet-Grilled Lamb Chips with Mushroom Sauce. There are also recipes for traditional Jewish favorites for cooks with a bit more time, such as Classic Challah Bread, Holiday Sweet Potato Kugel, Poppy Seed Hamantaschen and Passover Hazelnut Sponge Cake. Home cooks do not need to keep a kosher kitchen to enjoy Zeidler's recipes. (Feb.)
Library Journal
With more than eight recipes for haroseth alone, The New York Times Passover Cookbook will be invaluable for anyone who hosts a Passover seder--or even takes a dish to one. Amster has put together an impressive and delicious collection of recipes from the Times food section and from cookbooks by three of its well-known writers: Craig Claiborne, Mimi Sheraton, and Molly O'Neill. Chapters are organized by course or special dish, and there are moving reminiscences of special Passover seders, as well as a good general introduction by Joan Nathan, an authority on Jewish cooking. Recipes range from the traditional to the contemporary, with dishes from chefs such as Wolfgang Puck alongside family recipes passed down for generations. Highly recommended. Cooking teacher and author Zeidler offers an appealing collection of simple but sophisticated kosher recipes, with a few more complicated holiday dishes she couldn't bear to leave out. Some are adaptations of top chefs' recipes, such as Alain Ducasse's Fennel "Caviar"; others were inspired by Zeidler's yearly sojourns in Italy. There's no reason that the audience for Zeidler's latest book should be limited to kosher cooks; her Gourmet Jewish Cook (LJ 9/15/88) has been a staple for years. For most collections.

FENNEL "CAVIAR"
>

FORGET CHOPPED liver. Instead, serve this fresh fennel pate with its unexpectedly delicate anise flavor. The recipe is courtesy Alain Ducasse's lovely bed-and-breakfast, La Bastide de Moustier, in Moustier, France. One of my tasters confessed that she ate the whole bowlful of this "caviar" herself — she didn't even stop to make the accompanying toast rounds.

MAKES 2 CUPS; OR ABOUT 16 SERVINGS

2 medium fennel bulbs

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 shallot, minced

2 tablespoons minced yellow onion

Pinch of fresh minced thyme

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Toasted rounds of French bread

Cut off the feathery tops of the fennel bulbs, and remove any tough outer layers. Cut the fennel into 1/4-inch dice, to yield about 3 cups.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the garlic, shallot, and onion about 4 minutes, or until soft. Add the fennel and saute until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the thyme, salt, and pepper, and let cook for 5 more minutes. Transfer to a wooden board and chop until well blended, or place in a food processor and pulse once or twice for a finer consistency. Spoon into a covered bowl or crock and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with toast rounds.

    Nothing was appealing

    A very disappointing cookbook, and I am Jewish. Recipes, although easy to prepare and had easy to find ingredients, were completely unappealing. Definitely not traditional Jewish food nor American food. She presents ethnic food, but all the bad recipes.
