Product Description

For the past 35 years Lévana Kirschenbaum’s name has been synonymous with upscale Kosher dining through her eponymous restaurant Lévana, her library of best-selling cookbooks, and her enormous online following on her popular blog, Facebook and Twitter.

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. It is chock-full of simple and natural dishes and desserts that uses whole unprocessed foods.

The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen book is an important work. It restores kashrut to a respected position in the natural food world.


“Levana Kirschenbaum, who pioneered gourmet kosher cooking for the past 30 years at her upscale restaurant on New York’s Upper West Side, has produced her third gorgeous cookbook, brimming with absolutely delicious dishes for your haute guests — and for your family, too, who deserve the finest. There’s a gluten-free section as well as a special Passover department. What are the benefits of whipping up your own menu instead of going to your neighborhood café? The answer is infuriatingly simple, she says. Your own creation “looks good and inviting, it tastes good, it feels good, it is healthier, it’s ready in no time, and it yields ample servings.” Also it fosters “a mood of wholesomeness, togetherness, and good cheer.” I’ll drink to that!” - 15minutesmagazine.com

“…I usually am not much of a cook but now that I have your newest cookbook the kitchen is my new hot spot (it always was, now I own it, I don’t just eat in it!) I recently made the peach pie, silken tofu chocolate mouse and halva from your cookbook. I loved them all and so did everyone who ate them. I love your cookbooks because I like to eat healthy and your cook book gives me that guarantee; a healthy meal that is also great tasting. Hopefully I’ll be able to meet you and try the foods that you have cooked.” – A fan, Shira Finman

“Updated, super-healthy kosher food never looked so good. Lévana Kirschenbaum’s easy recipes are precise, down to earth, and delivered with enthusiasm and joy.”  ~ Dianne Jacob, author of Will Write for Food

“Lévana’s Passion for wholesome foods will inspire you to change the way you cook and eat today. The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen contains a treasure trove of simple, scrumptious recipes for your eating pleasure. Learn how to eat your way to good health – and enjoy every bite!” ~Norene Gilletz, cookbook author, food writer, cooking teacher, and culinary consultant. www.gourmania.com

“This is Lévana’s Magnum Opus, a book that takes kosher cooking to a whole new level with everything we ever needed to know about preparing healthy cuisine from soup to nuts… The operative word here is delicious as Lévana proves that healthy never means boring or bland with recipes that the entire family will enjoy.” ~ Helen Schwimmer, food columnist for The Jewish Press

When I read Lévana Kirschenbaum’s recipes, I feel as if they were written for me. This is the kind of food I want to cook. The recipes are creative and enticing, and yet Lévana somehow manages to make them simple to prepare and healthy as well. Most of all I love Lévana’s flexibility. Always the teacher, Lévana shows many ways to vary her dishes, making it easy for cooks to use ingredients at hand and to learn how recipes work as well. Her crepe recipe can be made with chickpea flour, buckwheat flour, spelt flour, oat flour or whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour. When making her brownies, you can substitute gluten-free flour, or use potato starch for Passover. “The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen” is full of delicious surprises. I’m eager to wake up to Lévana’s Moroccan breakfast soup of steel cut oats flavored with olive oil, fenugreek, garlic, cilantro and mint. For my next festive dinner I’m trying to decide between her chicken curry with tomatoes and plantains, her beef stew cooked in green tea with parsnips, sweet potatoes, celery root and ginger, and her potato, olive and tomato tajine with tofu and preserved lemon. But even before that I’m going to try her Indian sweet potato pudding with coconut milk, orange flower water, cardamom, saffron and ginger.    ~ Faye Levy, author, “1,000 Jewish Recipes”
