Favorite Triple-Tested Recipes
by Leah Schapira & Victoria Dwek
Artscroll Shaar Press
Two dynamos equal one amazing cookbook! Relaxed, fun, friendly packed with ideas ... just like its authors.
Leah Schapira, author of the bestselling cookbook, Fresh & Easy Kosher Cooking, co-founder of Cookkosher.com and self taught cook, has teamed up with Whisk managing food editor and journalist Victoria Dwek to create Passover Made Easy, a cookbook that puts the "wow" and the "easy" into Passover meals. These two women (we don't think that they ever sleep) have collaborated on a creative, contemporary and practical cookbook offering simple recipes and do-it-yourself ingredients that most cooks will welcome in their Passover kitchen.
Passover Made Easy offers readers relevant culinary information, useful preparation tips, 60 Passover friendly recipes, full-color photos for each dish, plating and serving suggestions, and wine pairings advice. There are recipes for Seders, Yom Tov entertaining, and casual meals on intermediate days. The ingredients are easy to find and all but four of the 60 recipes in the book are gluten-free (non-gebrokts).
Many of the recipes are inspired or adapted from family and blogger friends. The book is divided into sections such as the building blocks which includes basic recipes for homemade mayonnaise, Passover crumbs, crepes and more − to food for the kiddies like "Matzaroni and Cheese", to sections on Seder dishes and desserts. According to Leah, in a 60-recipe book, the authors really had to LOVE a recipe to include it. More good news, Passover Made Easy is the first in a series of "Made Easy" books planned for publication in 2013 and 2014.
And the critics say: "witty, delicious, friendly, go-to resource, relaxed, fun, modern, for both beginners and pros"... KosherEye says: Win it or Buy It! This cookbook is a must for your Passover library.
KosherEye note: We believe that the decision to make this a soft covered cookbook was a wise one. It makes the book more cost effective and space friendly in a bookshelf or when those Passover dishes are stored away in boxes.
