    When I lost my home and I went back to pack I could only take what was most in need and would fit in a nissian sentra with 2 people in the car so I didnt get alot. I left so many things that were inportant to me including cook books some dated back to the 40s that were handed down in the family. didnt mean to leave then but time wasnt on my side. I went 3 years with no stove or oven to cook with so I forgot most of my recipes and now I only have a couple and look for more. any recipe I will try to cook and i print them out and save all of them

    Now if only I could get what I cook to look as beautiful as the dishes in those pictures. Just beautiful and delicious sounding, too. Kosher cuisine certainly has come a long way!
    On a humorous note, I am tickled by the timing of this giveaway. Just today, I blogged about “The lighter side of Kashrut.” See my post here: http://community.beliefnet.com/daphalaugh/blog/2011/07/06/a_full_degree_below_normal:_tastes_like_chicken!

    I am really looking foward to some real good food

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Brenda Brown (BB)

    I am looking forward to winning this cookbook. I am a collector of cookbooks and I do not have a kosher cookbook. I love to cook and to make something different, it is up my alley!! I can’t wait!!

    I’d love to win the cookbook.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pat Castor

    I collect cookbooks with my husband, but do not have a specific Kosher cookbook. We would love to add this to our collection and try out the beautiful recipes. If we were to win, we would be so grateful!!!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pamala

    good to try NEW and fresh things especially simple too!!!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pamala

    This is very good to have a simplified, fresh and “kosher’ cookbook!!

    Hope it will be a classic!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Larry Lennhoff

    I can always use another cook book.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Beatriz Contreras

    These recipes are no-nonsense while elegant. They are visually pleasing and the combination of ingredients makes sense. I look forward to trying some of them!

  • http://KosherCooking Betsy Buring Fisher

    I don’t cook much but my wonderful mother in law does. I would love to give her this elegant cookbook as an appreciation for all that she does and most importantly, all that she is.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Dee

    The desserts love divine! Yummo!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Bonnie

    I’m always looking for good kosher cookbooks. Too many kosher cooks try to substitute sub par ingredients from other cuisines rather than adapt recipes, or make their own. No more plain and bland from my kitchen just to say its kosher!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Kelly Linde

    I will be getting married soon and I could really benefit from having a Kosher cookbook. Mother-in-law! Need I say more? I need all the assistance I can get to compete with my soon-to-be mother-in-law’s cooking! Thank you!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Wendy

    My daughter is getting married in March and I would love to give her a kosher cookbook for a gift. She will need to be able to cook for the holidays.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Lindsey

    Okay, I admit it. I am a cookbook addict, and my cookbook rack is already unmanageable. But . . . there is always room for one more, right? Actually, I do have a huge collection of cookbooks, but I really do use all of them. I keep kosher, but I do not have this cookbook and would love to add it to my collection. The recipes are a bit fancier than most of my others, and, since I love hosting dinner parties, I would like some new ideas to step my menus up a notch, especially for Shabbat.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Nancy

    I cannot wait to try the recipes. Hope to win a cookbook, but just in case can you give us the ISBN so we can purchase one after the winner is announced. Thanks

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Roger

    We fight. We win. We eat. Great looking cookbook!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Beth

    I would appreciate receiving this Kosher cookbook. Trying new recipes creates new expereiences and quality time that my family and I share together enjoying delicious meals.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Ellen

    This is a fabulous cookbook – I’ve seen it in a bookstore and fell in love with it. Because I’m pretty devastated financially now I can’t afford to buy it, but I’d love to own it. Such great recipes!! Thanks so very much.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Edna Jackson

    My husband told me about this Kosher Cookbook Giveaway – you think he is trying to tell me something? However, I absolutely love to cook and it would be nice to expand my menu. It is my desire to cook meals that are good for you and become memories for my children.

  • http://opcatchat.blogspot.com caren gittleman

    I am a real foodie, I adore to cook and I also collect cookbooks.

    I often get stumped on the major Jewish Holidays about what to serve and this would make a marvelous addition to my collection!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Breezy P

    Always look forward to new recipes for the high holy days.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment arlene traxler crandall

    My grandmother was Jewish and taught me to make potato panacakes when I was 8 years old. I wish I could learn other Kosher recepies in the proper manner. She did Friday sabbath prayer with us and lit the candles. Now I am trying to do the same with my daughter. Blessed Be!

    My grandmother always use to say, “A Kosher chicken is the best chicken because it is moist and tender.” I now know what she means. Kosher is not only a food but a philosophy!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Eva Newborn

    What could be more “delish”, than a yummy kosher dish? I could have a wish for a nice potato knish!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Martin

    Great recipes. Mama’s Meichulim. My time growing up with my Bubby was always warm and savory.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment jane schwartzman

    I’ve always wanted to understand what exactly was required to serve kosher meals in my house…..and thereby, keep a kosher house. It would be wonderful to have this guide.Thank you,

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Laura Tirrell

    I am hoping to win this cookbook because I want to learn to cook more Kosher my husband just found out he has jewish roots and I would love to be able to cook some Kosher food. It is hard for me to run out and get this in the store due to the fact my husband is unemployed plus it would be great for my kids to eat some food from their new heritage . Thank you . The food also looks so good and I can’t wait to try it !!!!

  • http://growingup Feryne

    I grew up in an Othodox household, with lots of Kosher dishes made by my grandmother and my mom. Since their deaths when I was in my early teens, since I was not taught how to cook them I have had fewer to almost none in the lives of my family. We lost the women in my life so close together that I had no one to teach me the right way to prepare many of the dishes. I would love to have the cookbook to bring the smell back home.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Sharon

    I am not a good cook at all…perhaps it’s ’cause I don’t cook enough. Cooking for one isn’t fun. Perhaps if I had this cookbook, it would help me to cook more!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment VeeP

    Delish 7 times over! All I need to go with this plethora of truly Kosher Elegance is someone to prepare these recipes for me!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Carrie Rimes

    I am excited to see another kosher cookbook become available. I create a lot of my own recipes. Not only do we keep a certain level of kosher (we call it “casual kosher”)in our home, but I also have celiac disease. I can not eat gluten. And my youngest son can not eat tree nuts. So any new source of food ideas which I can modify is a welcome one.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Jan Moynihan

    I enjoy studying the Jewish history, culture, and their foods. I would love to have a cookbook of kosher recipes.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Kathleen Da Souza

    Thank you for this opportunity to comment about the Kosher Cookbook. I love too cook and as a new Jew I am in the learning stages of how to cook Kosher. I don’t have any Kosher cook books and this would be a wonderful addition to my cook books. My mother was a wonderful cook and taught my sister and I to cook.Thank you and happy cooking.

    Cookbooks…. My favorite collection. One I have that is a treasure to me is from a lady who created her own cookbook and was donating all proceeds to cancer research. This cookbook will be another one of my treasures with recipes I know I can share.

    Our temple has a lot of dinners, and things that I could use the great recipes to help make the dinners nice, We love to cook and show each other nice recipes, and I could show the book to the sisterhood, and some might go out and buy one, too. You never know what happens at a sisterhood meeting.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment ELLEN KATCHER

    Iam a board member of my Temple’s sisterhood and I would love to be able to bring some new recipes to our kiddishes and our different outings.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment LBuddG

    My wife & I have been separated for the last 2.5 years, thank G-D. I’m ‘almost proud’ that I manage to cook some relatively ‘simple things’ & a few NOT so simple (to me, anyway). I’d love to get a book like this and try a few REAL recipes. Unfortunately, $$$ IS DEFINITELY an object. All help is appreciated! -Budd

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment LOUISE RUTKAY

    I am an avid cook, and when I saw the beautiful pictures and the easy to follow instructions, I knew immediately that this was one cook book I would love to own. Kosher cuisine has improved a thousandfold in the last few years. Keep up the good work with such lovely publications.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Linda Zed

    Random draw? Count me in, please. I’d love to win a copy of the Kosher Elegance cookbook. Thanks for posting the sample recipes. Looks like a great new cookbook and a much-needed addition to the repertoire of any kosher cook. Can’t wait to see the whole book!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Holly

    Wow, they look so yummy!!!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Ina

    I’ve never had a kosher cookbook because I didn’t know which would be authentic. This Beliefnet site should eliminate that problem! My friends and I are RC, and there were no kosher restaurants in Little Rock (at least we didn’t know of any). We regularly went to Hot Springs to eat at the Mayflower and another restaurant whose name I can’t remember from 50 years or more ago. Anyway, I would love to learn to make cheese blintses (probably wrong spelling) in my own kitchen. And that’s one reason I’d love to win your cookbook. Another reason is that I’ve been told by different sources that the grandmother I never knew (1) was and (2) wasn’t jewish. I do plan to do a little searching about that, and whether she was or wasn’t I’m sure I will learn a lot.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Judy Levin

    As the lay person responsible for most onegs, I would be thrilled to have such a beautiful cookbook to help in my quest to serve wonderful deserts, lunch items and appetizers. Thanks you for the opportunity to win this wonderful book. The recipes look scrumptious and doable.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pam Bartner

    Would love to share this with the family at the upcoming reunion.
    Bubbi always brings us together with food, family, yiddish and fun!
    Tradition….Tradition….

    I would love a kosher cookbook to help me as I embark on a deepening journey into my observance!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Diane Popper

    Always looking for new recipes to try for holiday meals. I think family and friends are getting tired of always having the same menu. (not that there’s anything wrong with it!)

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Vivienne

    Wow what a book. The food I could cook with this. It would actually be appetising for a change!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Perri

    I love Kosher meals and would be delighted if I could cook some as well.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Frank

    I grew up in a Jewish and Kosher home. Went thru life and got married at 40 to a non-Jewish woman. My mother gave her some recipes, but would love to have this book for her.
    Maybe she could make some of the older traditional type foods.

    Thank you..

    About three years ago, myself and my wife went to a Jewish food and crafts show at Temple Beth Or in Montgomery Alabama and we fell in love with Jewish foods. If we win this cookbook, I’m sure we would attempt to make every recipe in it…

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment dina sasson

    In Judaism there is something very important when it comes to love and transmitting that love to your family, that is being the mom or the women in the house that cooks for the family. Why? Because through her hands and her heart, the positive energy and the blessings go to the food, and when her family eats that food, they are filled with the the love, the values, the respect for family, the traditions, and the kosher laws that are being respected.

    This book, Kosher Elegance, not only is a beautiful and elegant way to keep the family together in shabbat and everyday kosher table, but a very delicious way to fill meals with fond memories.

    I would treasure a copy for me and my daughters.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Ella Morgan

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Linda Rich

    It would be great to be able to use the recipes from this cookbook to enhance the kiddish, following our Saturday Morning Shabbat Service. I am the one who does the cooking and food preparation. :)

    Wonderful timing! I have been watching episodes of Masterchef Australia and thinking about how I would like to start cooking again. This would be a great “re-entry” cookbook.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Pearl Berman

    I collect as many Jewish cookbooks as I can find. This one will make a wonderful addition to my collection. I will also be able to cook new Jewish meals from the recipes in this new cookbook.
