Nechama Cohen, in her cookbook Enlitened Kosher Cooking, offers contemporary, classic and health-conscious kosher recipes designed for chefs and foodservice directors alike.
Tailoring health concerns to a kosher menu can be a challenge for some, especially since Jewish culture is laden with holiday traditions that focus on food.
However, Enlitened Kosher Cooking offers healthful, delicious recipes that range from simple to complex, covering the day-to-day as well as holidays and celebrations. A sampling includes lowcarb knaidlach (matzah balls), orange and fennel salad, golden potato kugel, chicken breasts with pesto stuffing in wine sauce as well as whole-wheat challah.
Each recipe contains an easyto-read nutritional chart that provides portion sizes, dietary exchanges and food values for calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, sodium, cholesterol, calcium, and fiber.
Enlitened Kosher Cooking's many healthful recipes, paired with full-color mouth-watering photography, can add value to any menu, especially a kosher one.
