Cookbook Provides Delicious and Innovative Recipes That Are Perfect for Pesach
Passover is a time for family and friends to come together, usually over a meal. Naomi Nachman, chef, caterer and host of the popular radio show “Table for Two” on the Nachum Segal Network, launches her debut cookbook just in time to make Passover meals easy and delicious.
In Perfect for Pesach: Recipes You’ll Want to Make All Year (Artscroll/March 2017), Naomi shares some of her popular recipes from over two decades of cooking and catering for Pesach. Naomi’s recipes use innovative flavor combinations with ingredients that are easily accessible from local supermarkets and stores. In addition, while the recipes are all focused on Passover they can be served and enjoyed all year long.
Perfect for Pesach features over 125 delicious recipes beautifully photographed by kosher blogger and cookbook author, Miriam Pascal. Each recipe features Cook’s Tips culled from Naomi’s years of professional experience and she has provided readers with Freezer Tips, Prep Ahead, How-to information and recommendations for basic kitchen equipment.
