Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Publishers Weekly
“Kosher cooks new to the kitchen, as well as those new to keeping kosher, who want more than the standard Jewish fare will cheer at seeing the array of classy alternatives.”
 
Chicago Tribune
“Fein has a love for flavors and spices from around the world and an eye for what people want to eat today.”


Austin Chronicle
, 5/9/08
“Offers simple, quick recipes featuring fresh ingredients, making it a welcome addition to anyone's cookbook library, whether they cook kosher or not.”

Living Without
, 11/08
“Fein’s cookbook certainly does it right, offering 175 easy-to-prepare recipes freshened with contemporary ingredients.”

Jewish Book World
, 10/31/08
“Offers an antidote to conventional Jewish fare with a wide selection of easy to prepare contemporary dishes.”

Rochester
 Jewish Ledger, 8/28/10
Hip Kosher is a fresh take and indispensible kitchencompanion on kosher cooking for the legions of Jews and others who follow or aspire to adopt Jewish dietary laws.”

Publishers Weekly

But for the title, a glance through this book's wide-ranging recipes would never give away that they're kosher. Kosher cooks new to the kitchen-as well as those new to keeping kosher-who want more than the standard Jewish fare will cheer at seeing the array of classy alternatives: pumpkin bisque instead of chicken soup; arepas rather than latkes; Mexican hot chocolate brownies, not halvah. And they can make everything with the confidence that it will adhere to dietary laws: Fein provides a comprehensive yet readable explanation of their principles, and all the dishes are composed to ensure they pass.

Fein is a food writer, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Cooking Basics, and owner of a cooking school in Stamford, CT. She notes that while traditional foods are still expected on the holiday table, modern kosher cooks want simpler and more contemporary recipes for everyday cooking. She provides a guide to cooking kosher and lists of pantry staples, followed by simple recipes, from Quick Osso Buco to Thai-Style Fish Curry, inspired by a variety of cuisines. The meat, fish, and poultry chapters open with "Kosher Quick Guides" on the main ingredient, but it would have been helpful to have the other recipes designated as meat, dairy, or pareve. The recipes are fine but not special; Laura Frankel's Jewish Cooking for All Seasons provides a more imaginative approach to contemporary kosher cuisine. For subject collections.

    Best cookbook in my collection!

    Hip Kosher is a fantastic addition to my cookbook collection. I am so grateful for these practical, simple and DELICIOUS recipes! We don't always eat kosher but often buy kosher foods for humane reasons. Some of our family is kosher so it's not only a terrific gift, it's great to have so many recipes to make for our kosher relatives and friends. <BR/>The Chicken with Dates and Toasted Almonds is a family favorite, the spinach pie is outstanding and perfect for our vegetarian friends, and challah french toast is beloved by the children in our family. <BR/>Thank you, Ronnie Fein! Keep the cookbooks coming!

    Great basic cookbook

    This cookbook is great for basic recipes. It's kind of a "Rachel Ray for Kosher food." The recipes are easy to follow, tasty and the tips are very helpful.

    Great Find

    This is unlike any other kosher cookbook I have. The recipes are not the usual recipes that you find in other kosher books. They are smart and also varied and are recipes for the kind of food we like to eat all the time. I have used this book for some time now and have made many of the recipes. They are easy and so many of them are so short that I can make them during the week. I also find that there are a million helpful sidebars. I have given this book as a gift and got lots of thank yous from people. A definite keeper but also a definite one to use frequently. If you buy this, use it. Don't store it away on you bookshelf.

    Hip Kosher Hits the Spot

    I am not (especially) hip nor Kosher, but I am interested in creative recipes, simple preparation, healthy food and clear instructions. And if I learn a tidbit about the origin of the dish I am serving, so much the better. Ronnie Fein's book delivers on all fronts. Red Pepper and Vidalia Onion Sandwich, Eggplant with Yogurt and Pine Nuts, Pomegranate-Glazed Turkey London Broil, Chilled Cucumber-Avocado Soup -- I have only tried a few of the mouthwatering recipes in these pages, but my family is eager for more. And that is always a welcome sign. I plan to buy extra copies as gifts, and heartily recommend this book for contemporary cooks of every description.

    Goumet Kosher Cooking

    I just purchased this book - what a find! It is filled with creative, 'gourmet', healthy kosher recipes that I know my family will love. Additionally, the author writes in a clear manner that makes me feel like I can try any of the recipes that attract me - none will be too hard to execute. At this point, I have only tried the Carrot and Parsnip soup recipe, but based on the results and my family's raves, I am confident that the rest of the book will be just as rewarding.
