Cookbook Review: The Kosher Baker

The Kosher Baker Book Cover shoyerRAWs_0069

The Kosher Baker cookbook is a delightful discovery for the home baker, published by Brandeis University Press.

The Kosher Baker Book CoverThere may be a lot of cookbooks out there that are dairy free, but none showed up on our doorstep right about the time 30% of our tasters declared they were now vegetarian and/or vegan.

Not to mention said book has over 160 recipes from traditional to trendy.

Author Paula Shoyer has divided the book into interesting and practical categories, which are based on how complicated the recipes are.

For example, Section 1 is “Quick and Elegant Desserts: 15 minutes preparation time.” Section 2 is “Two-Step Desserts, 15 to 30 minutes preparation time.” The concept continues throughout the book.

The 160 recipes include cookies, tarts, cakes, breads, cupcakes, cobbler, Key lime pie, and even fruit soups. Essentially any recipe that you may want to make but usually add milk or cheese you can probably find a version here without those ingredients.

We recommend this as a must-have cookbook for any home chef or baker, because you never know when you’re going to go vegetarian, vegan, or even all the way Kosher.
