Millennial Kosher Cookbook


Millennial Kosher: Recipes Reinvented for the Modern Palate (Artscroll/Shaar) by Chanie Apfelbaum does what its title promises: updates traditional and familiar fare for the kosher table with a modern twist and ingredients that have found favor among a younger demographic.

Consider her shakshuka, a tomato, egg and vegetable dish popular in Israel and elsewhere for breakfast but a staple for any time of day. Apfelbaum’s version uses ramen noodles and the ever-popular sriracha. It’s delicious, and as important, simple to make because it calls for only seven ingredients. Fish—not the usual beef, lamb, turkey or chicken—is the star of her shawarma. And one of her chicken dishes cleverly employs a pineapple as a rotisserie stand. Visit artscroll.com.
