Now on her third cookbook (Quick and Kosher: Meals in Minutes), Geller builds on the notion of making kosher food fun and appetizing, a mission she strives for on her now famous food blog, "Joy of Kosher." For the particulars of this book, Geller has the "core recipes" but then also includes variations so that the dish can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the purpose of the dish and to who it is being served. Some prime examples are the "Roasted Summer Squash Lasagna," which can be made fancier by adding more vegetables in the "Roasted Vegetable Summer Lasagna" version or "Avocado Salad with Butter Lettuce and Lemon Dressing," which can be manipulated into "Mock Crab Salad in Avocados" or have its core ingredients dressed down for those who lack the higher-end components. Of course, it wouldn't be a Kosher cookbook if it didn't inform the reader of what section of cuisine it falls into, dairy, meat, or pareve/neither, and include specialty food for the Jewish Sabbath/holidays like Challah and "Daddy's Deep Dish Potato Kugel." With complimentary wine pairings offered to help complete the meal, this book is perfect for those whose mouths continue to water over kosher cuisine. (Oct.)
