In Jeff Nathan’s Family Suppers, the world-renowned chef and television host of New Jewish Cuisine delivers exactly what kosher home cooks everywhere have been asking for: creative recipes easy enough for the weeknight table. In the follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut cookbook,Adventures in Jewish Cooking, Jeff hangs up the professional chef’s coat to create a more casual kitchen go-to guide, simplifying steps in light of today’s busy family schedule but never sacrificing flavor or variety.
As a dad, Jeff knows all too well that family suppers require a kid-tested stamp of approval, and the recipes in this book won’t disappoint. Here are more than 125 irresistible yet eminently doable creations—Jeff’s signature modern American kosher fare with a global twist—that the whole family will enjoy, including favorites such as Four-Cheese Baked Ziti with Herbed Crumbs, Grilled Skirt Steak with Mint Chimichurri, Matzo-Crusted Chicken Strips with Honey-Mustard Dip, Spicy Oven Fries, and Tilapia Teriyaki with Stir-Fried Asian Vegetables.
The chapters are organized into unfussy, everyday menu categories: Soups, Salads, Chicken and Turkey, Meats, Fish, Vegetable Main Courses, Pasta, Side Dishes, and Desserts. Extras include a section on stocking the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer (from essentials to “could-haves”); time-saving tools; tips for keeping an organized kitchen; and, perhaps most important, ways to involve the whole family in cooking.
