Big News! We’ve Gone Digital!
Posted on 10th of September, 2012 by Lévana
I’m so excited to announce that we are carrying all my cookbooks in digital form: Levana’s Table, Levana Cooks Dairy Free! and The Whole Foods Kosher Cookbook. While you can enjoy the hardcover copy in the comfort of your home, you can now enjoy them on your iPad, iPhone, tablet or PC on the road!
We created the e-books in a desire to accommodate our many overseas fans who reported finding it difficult to get their hands on the printed copy of the books. For our US-based fans, the e-books are the perfect supplement to your printed copies – you can use them from any device, making it perfect to use on the go, in your vacation home, or just to keep your printed books clean and pretty. Stopping at the market on your way home? Whip out your e-books: The ingredient list is all there!
The ebooks are identical to their hardcover counterpart and are as beautiful and navigable. It is such fun working with them! For only $29.90, you can get ALL THREE cookbooks in e-book form! The e-books, either sold individually or as a set, also make a great gift – at less than the cost of a bottle of wine! Boy you’ll make many people happy!
With her latest book, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen: Glorious Meals Pure and Simple, Lévana embarked on her most ambitious journey yet: to present a beautiful, comprehensive compilation of her life’s work, her Magnum Opus as she calls it: The hundreds of dishes she shares are at once economical, easily prepared, and absolutely irresistible: Serious ingredients, fun dishes: This is her motto, even when it comes to dessert.
This substantial, beautiful volume goes beyond the traditional scope of a cookbook, and generously shares a whole natural, sensible, and wholesome way of life; it belongs in every household, Kosher or not, just within reach, sure to be used again and again: a cherished, useful gift for any occasion.
This book includes Lévana’s latest, as always all natural recipes, with 72 gorgeous full-page photographs by Meir Pliskin.
- A GENERAL INDEX, with more than 350 recipes!
- A GLUTEN-FREE INDEX, with natural and delicious gluten-free adaptations of more than 250 dishes!
- A PASSOVER INDEX, with more than 250 Passover-friendly recipes!
Lévana’s Table offers more than 150 recipes that are simple, nutritious, beautifully presented, and 100 percent Kosher. Together, these dishes form an international mosaic celebrating my Moroccan upbringing and other wide-ranging culinary influences and interests: French, Mediterranean, Asian, and vegetarian cooking, as well as food for holidays and entertaining.
If you think that steering clear of dairy means giving up your favorite dishes, you’re in for a delicious surprise. Here, respected restaurateur, chef and cooking instructor Lévana Kirschenbaum offers a collection of creative and luscious recipes, made with natural dairy alternatives such as soy, rice, oat, almond and coconut milks – all significantly leaner than their rich dairy counterparts. Addressing the needs of the lactose-intolerant community, as well as everyone who keeps kosher, Lévana includes a wide range of both vegetarian and meat fare, from avocado cucumber soup and blueberry scones, to lasagna and ice cream. Regular cheesecake doesn’t hold a candle to hers!
With beautiful full-color photographs accompanying each recipe, this is a groundbreaking collection of Lévana’s valuable contribution to the dairy-intolerant and kosher communities will surely not escape the larger public.
Sometimes the secret ingredient is not comestible; it is just a good story that lets you in on a party, a restaurant, an event. Levana loves to write about the many years she spent in the restaurant business, on the road on catering jobs and cooking demonstrations, teaching, cooking and entertaining. You will enjoy her stories every bit as much as you have enjoyed her cooking, and you will get an education and a good laugh in the process. Levana adds funny stories to her repertoire regularly. Happy Healthy Cooking, Eating and Reading!
