The Open Kitchen - a Fresh Approah to Cooking Kosher Hardcover


Amazing new cookbook from SAR, one of the largest modern orthodox Jewish day schools in the tri-state area! The cookbook, featuring 200+ easy-to-follow recipes from around the world, focuses on using a wide variety of whole, minimally processed and seasonal ingredients to achieve vibrant, flavorful dishes. Inspired by the proliferation of blogs, cooking programs and non-kosher cookbooks, “The Open Kitchen celebrates the endless possibilities of kosher cooking, offering creative ideas for every day of the week that are simple to make, beautiful to look at and delicious for the entire family,” explains Shoshana Winter, editor-in-chief. Professionally produced full-color photographs highlight the tested recipes. The Open Kitchen reflects SAR’s open approach to education - reflective and inclusive, symbolizing SAR’s connections to the outside world. From Mexico to Morocco, from Tunisia to Thailand, a global array of recipes create innovative – and kosher – menus. Favorites include Stuffed Figs and Apricots, Persian Lamb Shank Stew, Syrian Cholent, Zuppa Polpettini (Italian meatball soup), Spicy Red Lentil Soup, Tandoori Chicken, Mexican Lasagna, Vegetable Moussaka, Tea-Poached Cod, Pistachio-Pomegranate Wild Rice Salad, Whole Wheat Couscous with Squash, Shallots and Figs, Caramel Popcorn, and Blueberry Orange Bundt Cake. An inclusive collection, there are recipes for tempeh and tofu for vegetarians and vegans as well. The Open Kitchen is dedicated to the memory of Sheri Raskas z”l, devoted community leader, consummate hostess, cook and entertainer, who lived a life that exemplifies the values and commitment to family and community that serve as the cornerstone of the school. SAR is dedicated to the belief that every child possesses a divine spark, has unique worth as an individual and should be encouraged to achieve according to his or her ability. SAR’s warm environment promotes confidence, creativity, and enthusiasm for learning.
