Description: For some of us, kosher cooking is pure nostalgia, redolent with memories of the aromas and tastes of our mother's or grandmother's kitchen: holiday hamantaschen; sweet-smelling, freshly baked challah; rich chicken soup and feathery light matzoh balls. For many others, kosher cooking is still a way of life. For all of us, though, Our Food will be a joyful reintroduction to favorite old recipes from the kosher repertoire -- updated with a wealth of surprising new dishes, as well as modern concern for fitness and health. 

Anita Hirsch, a trained nutritionist who keeps a traditional kosher kitchen, has reworked the classic recipes from Eastern Europe, lightening them, taking out much of the fat and cholesterol, and substituting fresh herbs and spices for salt -- all without sacrificing any of the flavor we remember and love. To this traditional repertoire she has added dishes that introduce us to the joys of Italian and Middle Eastern kosher cooking. She has adapted vegetables and cereals and beans from around the world. And she has shown us how all the conveniences of the contemporary kitchen -- the microwave, the food processor, even the dishwasher -- work in the kosher kitchen. 

With more than 100 recipes in all, Our Food includes the classic recipes that have inspired kosher cooks for generations: gefilte fish with horseradish sauce, potato latkes, kreplach, matzoh ball soup, borscht, whitefish salad, chopped herring, carrot tzimmes, noodle kugel, cheese blintzes, rugalach, and more. But what sets this book apart is its plethora of exciting new dishes -- mushrooms vinaigrette, antipasto di mare, corn and potato chowder, jicama and green bean salad, sun-dried tomato and bow-tie pasta salad with almonds, broiled salmon with artichokes and mushrooms, falafel, and chocolate cake -- showing us how compatible kosher cooking can be with modern taste. Each recipe indicates the number of calories and the amount of protein, carbohydrates, fat, cholesterol, and sodium per serving. 

Anita Hirsch has also included a final section on the vast range of delicious kosher wines now available. 

Our Food is truly the kosher cookbook for today—the book every cook will want to own.
