You'll never think the same way about the kosher kitchen after cracking open this wonderful book. Authors Katja Goldman and Arthur Boehm have focused on chicken, turkey, and duck--all products of Empire Kosher, the largest kosher poultry
producer in the U.S. They have stuck to the kosher food laws, and have produced a world-tour, world-class collection of recipes to meet any and all occasions. You'll need a napkin at hand to mop your chin as you peruse this book.
The last may be
best. In a final chapter, titled "The Next Day," you'll find recipes such as Mango-Dressed Chicken Salad, Turkey, White Bean and Escarole Soup, and Basil Chicken Salad on Rosemary Focaccia. This is all beyond leftovers. This is a whole new level. The
proposed idea is to plan ahead rather than simply make do with leftovers. That is, while in the throes of cooking, cook extra portions with easy second-day meals in mind. Maximize your time. The authors call this the "poultry pantry," which is another
way of saying have on hand what you need when you need it.
Empire Kosher Chicken Cookbook includes chapters on starters and finger foods; soups; recipes for the range, the oven, and the grill; side dishes; and chutneys, dressings, and salsas.
Okay, you'll find Golden Chicken Soup, perhaps the last word on the subject. But get this: you'll also find yourself tempted by such soups as Moroccan Chicken and Lentil Soup, Canton Dumpling and Snow Pea Soup, and Indonesian Basil Coconut Soup.
For starters, there are Shiitake Potstickers, Chicken Nori Rolls, Curried Chicken Kabobs. Entrées include French-African Chicken Stew, Honey Ginger Chicken, Pungent Shabbat Chicken with Dried Fruit, Five Spice Roast Turkey Breast with Pear-Garlic
Sauce--the list goes on and on, a couple of hundred recipes' worth. This isn't just a cookbook: Empire Kosher Chicken Cookbook is a service to cooks everywhere. --Schuyler Ingle

11/1/95) doesn't neglect Southern fried chicken?in fact, he includes a whole chapter on it?but he goes way beyond. He describes fried chicken?whether deep-fried, pan-fried, or stir-fried?as universal, and he's collected recipes from countries as diverse
