Paula Shoyer, best-selling author of The Kosher Baker and The Holiday Kosher Baker, is back with another fabulous book just in time for Passover. Introducing, The Passover Menu by Paula Shoyer.
Fans have begged Paula for years to write a food book and now, drum roll please, she has. Paula has created The Passover Menu, organized in menus, with creations and delicious recipes from traditional to contemporary and sure to delight every palate. I can’t wait to include Moroccan Spiced Short Ribs and Seared Tuna with Olives and Capers and Kale Caesar Salad in my Passover Menu.
The New Passover Menu is a modern recipe book with dishes you might see at the hip restaurant down the street, but with others that traditional cooks would embrace. There are enough familiar recipes to remind people of their childhoods, but here they are updated, lighter and more flavorful.
Included are inventive menus for the two Seders, elegant Shabbat and Yom Tov menu as well as four diverse menus for the weekdays during the long eight-day holiday. Paula’s fabulous baked goods are found in the Breakfast and Dessert chapters. The book includes features that make planning and preparing for Passover cooking easy such as equipment lists for every recipe as well as prep and cook times.
Some of the delicious recipes found in the book include:
– Banana Charoset
– Peruvian Roast Chicken with Salsa Verde
– Moroccan Spiced Short Ribs
– Seared Tuna with Olives and Capers with Kale Caesar Salad
– Lamb Stew with Apricots, Pear and Mint
– Sephardic Poached Fish in Pepper Sauce
– Roasted Asparagus with Toasted Almond and Orange Gremolata
– Sweet Potato Tzimmis
– Cauliflower Slabs with Basil Pesto
– Frittata with Broccoli and Leeks
– Seder Plate Salad
And let’s not forget desserts, Paula’s specialty. For Passover Paula has created 15 brand new and delicious desserts (many Gluten-Free) such as:
– Opera Cake
– Linzer Tart
– Easy Fruit Cake
– Triple Chocolate Biscotti
– Pear Frangipane Tarts
As with all of Paula’s cookbooks, recipes are beautifully photographed and include helpful tips and techniques.
THE NEW PASSOVER MENU is the must-have cookbook for the Passover holiday. This will be the first resource you will turn to create delicious, elegant and inspired holiday meals this year and every year.
