You don’t have to be Jewish or celebrate the Jewish holidays to enjoy the wide array of classic and comfort foods that author Paula Shoyer presents in her recently published “The Healthy Jewish Kitchen” (, from Sterling Epicure New York.

Shoyer updates many traditional favorites such as borscht, challah, honey cake and tzimmis by putting a creative spin on either the ingredients, the presentation or both. Recipes are beautifully photographed and each features valuable information on prep and cooking time, equipment needed and advance prep required. Author Shoyer has been honored by Jewish Women International as a “kosher food pioneer” and this cookbook is her latest effort in her long career as a food writer to highlight the amazing world of foods created in Jewish Kitchens around the world.
