Whenever I open a new cookbook or really any book, I like to read about the author. The author’s background gives me a window into where she/he has come from and what might have influenced their writing. Reading the intro of Jamie Geller’s newest book: JOY of KOSHER-FAST, FRESH FAMILY RECIPES was certainly elucidating. Jamie has often referred to herself as “the bride who knew nothing”. She unabashedly tells the reader, that she grew up on take out, really doesn’t like to cook and learned how to be kosher somewhere in her mid twenties.
Jamie Geller has presented us with a beautiful collection of recipes that are perfect for family dinners and company too. Each recipe is offered with an option for family eating and a way to “dress it up” for company. This cookbook is all inclusive. From Challah dough and all the many variations you can make from it, to hors d’oeuvres, entrees, vegetables, salads and desserts- Jamie has it all covered. She gives you holiday recommendations, ways to combine her recipes to make a meal, lists of staples and equipment to keep on hand and several glossaries. My favorite is the “Hebrew, Yiddish, Yinglish” glossary. There is also a Passover substitution list. In addition, Jamie offers wine pairing with each meal. One of the wines she mentions is “W” by Weinstock-a dry white wine that I order by the case. It’s very reasonably priced so it’s great for cooking and drinking as well.
There are many beautiful photographs in this new book but none more beautiful than the ones of Jamie’s family that are interspersed throughout. It is clear that Jamie Geller has transformed her dislike of cooking into a calling to demonstrate that you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen to cook in a healthy and creative way for your family. To quote Jamie: “ That’s because food is an expression of love.” Jamie’s newest book (like her previous ones) should become a treasured new friend in your kitchen.
