When a cookbook author launches her intro with a line like “I don’t always love to cook,” her honesty feels like the confession of a delightfully candid friend. Or something we each feel, but probably don’t say, as we face another ___________ (fill in the blank: Monday, weekend, holiday, Shabbat, work week, school week, family dinner….)
It’s this tone of openness that first attracted me to Kim Kushner’s The New Kosher, Simple Recipes to Savor and Share (2015).

I’ve always been pleased to see so many non-meat alternatives for vegetarians dining at Prime Grill in NYC.
Chef David Kolotkin is as creative with apps and salads as he is with beef entrees. And with a fish section including rich entrees, like Teriyaki Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with Cauliflower Curry Puree and Red Snapper en Papillote, there’s really something for everyone at Prime.
My favorite fish dish nods subtly to Middle Eastern ingredients in this recipe for Falafel Crusted Salmon. Continue reading

I’m not interested in fooling our dinner guests into thinking I’ve slaved for days to cook for them. But I am interested in easy techniques that yield delicious results and even a little drama on the plate.
