I am up for any book that is titled Hip Kosher, because that is what I am all about! Hip Kosher, written by Ronnie Fein, features 175 easy recipes for kosher cooks (or wanna be cooks). As Fein puts it "You don't have to be Jewish to eat or cook kosher food." So true….
Fein gives great explanations for what kosher food is and breaks it down so that anyone can understand. Also Fein gives the kosher cook essentials for their kosher kitchen (I happen to agree with everyone of them).
As for the recipes, they are nicely separated by topics, with helpful tips thrown in. There are some nice spins on traditional Ashkenazi and Sephardic dishes, so this is a book for kosher cooks who want to experiment!
I will be adding most of side dishes to my repertoire for my clients. The recipe for Roasted Plum Tomatoes and Sauteed Carrots with Mints and Shallots makes my mouth water.
Hip Kosher would be a yummy addition to your kitchen library whether you are kosher, thinking about being kosher, or have a special someone in your life that is kosher.
