The New Passover Menu
by Paula Shoyer, Sterling Epicure Publishing
How we love Paula Shoyer's new cookbook – which is a culinary celebration of Passover, a joyous collection of creative holiday recipes. In her 3rd publication Paula, who is known for her expert baking repertoire, shares innovative recipes to help every level of cook shine and succeed in the Passover kitchen. Her recipes, some updated traditional favorites, along with some new creations, are all a celebration of Passover cooking.
The New Passover Menu presents 65 globally inspired recipes for the Seders and all eight days. We read the book cover-to-cover and enjoyed Paula's nostalgic family memories, while we learned from her chef's tips, cooking advice and shortcuts. (Did you know that in lieu of flour you could dredge meat with potato starch or matzo cake meal before browning?) We've already gone shopping for ingredients to make some of her dishes. The recipes are easy to follow, and well organized.
The recipes are varied. Some are re-invented Shoyer family favorites, some are classics, and some are new. All have been re-imagined and presented with a chef's gourmet touch, and fabulous photographs. We can't wait to get our Passover ovens revved up for: Frittata with Broccoli and Leeks, Peruvian Roast Chicken with Salsa Verde, Moroccan Spiced Short Ribs, and Sweet Potato Tzimmis. There are also fifteen of her famous desserts (many gluten-free), including Opera Cake and Triple Chocolate Biscotti. YUMM!
Another reason we like this book, although all of the recipes are Passover friendly, some will likely become year round staples. The New Passover Menu by Paula Shoyer is a KosherEye gift yourself, gift others selection.
