Giveaway: “Our Table” Cookbook By Renee Muller


“Our Table”, Renee Muller’s debut cookbook is absolutely stunning in presentation and reflects her European upbringing and culinary style with recipes that are fresh, simple and flavorful. Renee is no newcomer to the kosher cooking world – she’s a highly sought after food stylist and recipe columnist for years. GKC note…she did 10 of the pictures in my book, CELEBRATE, and I’m a BIG fan.

Originally from the prestine southern region of Switzerland’s Lake Lugano, Renee learned to cook in the Northern Italian tradition with both her grandmother and mother as her culinary mentors. She brought those skills and all her creativity to the United States and has created hundreds of unique and exquisite recipes for fans and clients. This book captures and easily explains some of her favorite recipes that bring family to Shabbos and holiday tables.

The recipes are, of course styled by Renee, and pictured just the way you would serve them, it’s one of my favorite parts, new, creative, elegant, and even rustic ways to present a salad or appetizer, a variety of meats and the homey look of some of those soups, yum, I could smell and taste them right off the page. It’s all there, appetizers, soups, salads, mains and show-stopper desserts. I can’t wait to try the Mint & Chocolate Hot Cookie Dessert.

She also provides some fantastic tips from her traditions, like adding a can of tomato sauce to certain soups. It adds a hint of acidity and richness that perfectly balances the ingredients for those recipes, totally new to me, and it worked so well in the Mushroom Barley Soup Done Right.

Something new too in this book, Renee includes an online link to some how-to videos for step-by-step instructions on certain recipes. Very helpful for the clearest instructions, especially for newer cooks.

I tried quite a few recipes including

Fall off the Bone Flanken (my kids would have eaten the bones too, they loved it!)
Silan, Lemon and Mustard Salmon (wonderfully easy weekday salmon)
Mushroom Barley Soup Done Right (Renee has got it on this one!)
Brownie Brittle (crunch, rich chocolate, need I say more, addictive)
Tasty Chocolate Cheese Muffins (I was intrigued by the balsamic vinegar in the batter, creates a great buttermilk type tang and richness to the cakey muffins with the scrumptious cheese filling)

“Our Table” is pretty enough to sit on the coffee table but practical enough that your copy will be too dirty from use and beloved to just leave it there. I’m enjoying cooking my way through it.
