A celebration of Jewish kosher cooking and tradition This expert cookbook offers all the recipes and information any cook needs to celebrate Passover, Rosh Hashanah, and many other Jewish holidays. 1,000 Jewish Recipes includes instructions for maintaining a kosher kitchen, information on the delicious culinary heritage of Jewish cultures, and tempting and easy-to-follow recipes such as Three-Cheese Knishes and Old-Fashioned Roast Chicken.
This book will prove that you can prepare quick meals that are low in fat and still taste great. The recipes will make use of bold seasonings that instantly add flavor without the need for long simmering. The book is organized around main courses, with chapters broken down into menus with poultry or meat, menus with fish or seafood, vegetarian menus and pasta menus. In addition, an introductory chapter will offer strategies for quick, low-fat cooking, including tips on picking fresh ingredients, stocking a pantry and cooking techniques. The menus will follow today's flexible dining habits. Some menus serve two, and others serve four. Most menus will include three recipes, but they will not all follow the traditional pattern of appetizer, main course and dessert. Sometimes, for example, there will be a main course with two accompaniments. Those menus that do not include desserts will have suggestions for simple desserts (usually seasonal fruit, frozen yogurt or other desserts already in the book) that would complement the menu well.
Taste, speed, and ease are the main ingredients in this cookbook for the health-conscious vegetarian. The recipes make use of bold seasonings that give maximum flavor with minimum preparation, and each menu serves two or four. Most meals include three recipes built around a main dish with chapters broken down into menus featuring: pasta, beans, rice, or other grains; one-pot menus; soup; salads; and "savory and sweet" recipes.
