The Joy of Kosher Cookbook, It’s Personal…*Giveaway*

You’ll hear people say my new Joy of Kosher is not exactly a cookbook – what they really mean is it’s not just a cookbook with the yummiest most delicious, most glorious food – it’s a book about life, my life.  Literally. I ripped pages out of my diary and swiped pictures of my family and put them into this book.  Nearly 400 pages of food, family, life and love.

You’ll want to hug this book.  I do.  I really wrote it for you ‘cuz I want to hug you.  You have no way of knowing how YOU keep me going, keep me writing, keep me honest and keep me cooking.  Without your cheering and support I would have thrown in the towel a long, long, long time ago.

I revel in the applause, comments like “my kids started saying, ‘more please, Mommy’”; “I cried all through your aliyah video”; “Thank you for this brisket recipe: it changed my life.”  And believe me if anyone knows, I know just how, exactly, a brisket can change one’s life!

This book is my most deeply felt, heart-baring, honest collection of recipes and stories.  I cook the way I do because of who I am: my background (didn’t grow up kosher); my journey (pampered kid, TV producer, workaholic); my evolving story (becoming religious); my mom (allergic to the kitchen but my biggest fan); my husband (a kitchen natural with an incredible sense of humor); my grandparents (gourmet chefs who loved us to pieces with food instead of words); my kids (my absolute life and the inexplicable cause of all those happy tears); and, of course, my kitchen (so I don’t have a dishwasher yet, I’ll manage).

This book is where all that love, life and laughter converge. Not to mention the food. Mmm, that fabulous food. It’s one, precious, happy, deliciously big book. ENJOY! I wrote it with every fiber of my being for you – yes you!

So please, please, please if you haven’t already done so pre-order your copies of the book NOW for just $18 so you have them in time for Chanukah and before the first printing sells out!

And to celebrate all this goodness we have a giveaway from one of my favorite condiments and book party sponsor French’s (click here for more recipes using French’s) ! In my new book I use mustard, mustard and more mustard. Dijon, Honey Dijon, Spicy Brown, Yellow – I use ’em all! So French’s has graciously offered a HUMUNGO prize package valued at $125 just for JoK readers featuring:

A French’s Prize Pack Valued at $125

  • 5-piece stainless steel grilling tool kit
  • 2 French’s pot holder mitts
