Jewaicious Review – The No Potato Passover

The No Potato Passover, by Aviva Kanoff is an exceptional cook book, in more ways than one.

It is not just a cookbook, but also a travelogue through cities and villages in Italy, through Croatia, Jamaica, New York, Czech Republic, Israel, Budapest, and several other locations, with accompanying photographs of both location and of recipe accomplishment.

The recipes’ finished products are delightful to look at in photograph form, and the recipes, themselves, are wonderful additions to the Passover celebration. I would make them year round, not just during Passover.

I tried three recipes, and was extremely happy with the results. So were my family members.

Baby Bok Choy with Garlic and Ginger came out fantastic. I served it with brown rice and chicken chunks.

I loved the Honey Mustard Poached Salmon.

The Chicken With Apricot Marmalade and Balsamic Vinegar Recipe came out divine. I thought I would never stop drooling. I served it with asparagus.

I highly recommend the delightful The No Potato Passover to everyone. It is not only a journey through cooking, but also a journey through inspiring and beautiful photographic locations.

    Baby bok choy sounds delicious.

    Someone on Twitter was complaining that she didn’t have the range of spices in the book Kosher for Passover – it’s limited what one can buy with Pesach certification.

    I like that you say it’s good for year round.

    • It was delicious, Leora. It probably depends on where you live, and also on the fact that, yes, the range of Pesach spices could be limited. Here in the L.A. and suburbs area, it isn’t a problem.

  2. Very tempting but it seems the book will be hard to find outside the US.

  3. I was hungry already..now I am starving…it sounds delicious
