  1. Try the Black Velvet Kippah Cake on p. 146.

  2. I’m curious as to when you will be quoting or reviewing the Bais Yaakov cookbook in a future post.

  3. Ari: Possibly. I have to look closely at the history and halakhah sections. But I won’t have an opinion on the actual cookbook section.

  4. What I want know is when we can expect a post on Kosher J.

  5. When the time is right. I just received R. Yitzchak Etshalom’s book on Shemos and that seems more time sensitive. And I also just finished reading galleys of R. Shmuley Yanklowitz’s forthcoming book. A lot to write about.

  6. Lend it to us, Debbie could write a review of the cookbook sections. She’s a bit of a cookbook collector and reads them for fun.
