Jew­ish Cook­ing for All Sea­sons col­lects more than 150 cre­ative, con­ve­nient, and sea­son­al kosher dish­es. From every­day meals to hol­i­day favorites, this book cel­e­brates and updates Jew­ish cook­ing with inno­v­a­tive recipes that use fresh, sea­son­al ingre­di­ents.

When Chef Frankel opened her first restau­rant in 1999, she was dri­ven not only by her love of cook­ing, but also by the desire to prove that kosher food can be as deli­cious and excit­ing as any oth­er type of con­tem­po­rary cui­sine. The same goes in her own kitchen. When her fam­i­ly decid­ed to keep kosher, they gave up eat­ing pork, shell­fish, and the com­bi­na­tion of meat and dairy — but that did­n’t mean they want­ed to sac­ri­fice fla­vor.

Jew­ish Cook­ing for All Sea­sons groups deli­cious recipes by sea­son, allow­ing home cooks to cre­ate won­der­ful meals year-round — from spring’s aspara­gus and goat cheese lasagna and sum­mer’s heir­loom toma­to sal­ad to fal­l’s roast­ed but­ter­nut squash bisque and win­ter’s braised veal shanks with Moroc­can spices. Frankel also groups recipes by hol­i­days, pro­vid­ing menus for Passover, Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah, and more.
