Overview

The Jewish love of eating extends far beyond the Shabbat and holiday tables to the every day. And while cholent and challah sate our appetites on Shabbat, and classics from brisket to latkes grace our holiday menus, what do we make for dinner on Monday night? Or prepare for Sunday brunch, or snack on in front of a movie? Here, America’s leading Jewish women’s organization, Hadassah, answers those culinary questions, sharing over 160 delicious, simple, kosher recipes that are destined to become family favorites.
 
The recipes in this book span the culinary globe, combining iconic American and Jewish tastes with Mexican, Italian, French, Asian and Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine.  They also celebrate the growing availability of fresh, seasonal produce and gourmet kosher ingredients, from artisanal cheese and chocolate to organic meat and poultry.  Vegetarians and omnivores alike will be delighted to find a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes (not to mention snacks and cocktails) that cater directly to them.  Focusing on freshness, flavor and no-fuss technique, The Hadassah Every Day Cookbook brings the flavors of the world—and the farm—to the kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Best How-To Books of 2011: cookbook winner." ~Library Journal

“Enter The Hadassah Everyday Cookbook, written by a good friend, Leah Koening, one of the finest young food writers I know. Leah’s passion for sustainability is matched only by her appetite for great food. She’s a kosher gastronome, and here, in these beautifully crafted pages, she not only gives us recipes, but reasons to love the food.” ~Save the Deli

“…the book is drop-dead gorgeous. Filled with warm photos of scrumptious recipes… also full of fantastic recipes—recipes that are easy, relaxed, creative, and perfect for anyone who loves classy, interesting, and fun Jewish food. “
~My Jewish Learning

Library Journal
Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, published The Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook in 2002. Now, they present another coffee-table cookbook with beautiful photographs sure to inspire those new to Jewish cooking. Cooks expecting matzo balls and challah will be disappointed (suggested instead are Andrea Marks Carneiro and Roz Marks's Jewish Cooking Boot Camp and The Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook), but those looking for modern Jewish recipes will be delighted to find Late Summer Fig Salad, Lemony Chicken Soup, Quinoa-Stuffed Squash with Pears and Cranberries, and Ricotta and Pistachio-Stuffed Figs. Food writer Koenig's book is highly recommended.
