Kosher Elegance: The Art of Cooking With Style is a new kosher cookbook by Efrat Libfroind, and it lives up to its name. This book is beautiful.
Every recipe has an accompanying full-page full color photo that looks so delectable you just might elicit you to lick your book. The presentation is classy and sophisticated, and the recipes look intense and amazing. The chapters aren’t your usual Jewish holidays and Shabbat—instead they’re Sophisitication, Occasions, Brunch, Hors D’oeurves, Layers, Simplicity, “Sushi”, Temptation, and Chocolate. Wondering why sushi is in quotations? It’s because it includes things like Eggplant roll-ups with a cheese filling, and pastrami roll-ups with couscous salad filling. Also a couple of more tradition sushi rolls.
These recipes aren’t for kugels and cholents and briskets. What’s here is a bit more labor intensive, but the results are truly beautiful.
