Most home cooks look at the beautifully presented foods in magazines and wonder how they can replicate the elegant look. Israeli chef Efrat Libfroind makes it easy.
Her cookbook, Kosher Elegance: The Art of Cooking with Style, provides detailed instructions and handy tips to guide both novice and experienced cooks through the preparation of a wide variety of dishes.
A full-page color photograph of the finished dish accompanies each recipe. The chapters are organized by theme rather than by type of dish.
With dishes such as lettuce, sweet potato and apple salad; eggplant roll-ups with cashew, cheese, and herb filling; and pomegranate-topped chocolate cups, any kosher cook will be able to prepare a well-presented, delicious, elegant meal.
This book would make a lovely wedding present.
