9781510706651: Mexikosher: More Than 100 Original, Mexican-Inspired Kosher Recipes from a Top Chef

Katsuji Tanabe always knew he wanted to be a chef; however, he had no idea he’d end up a kosher, celebrity chef.

After working his way up in restaurants around Los Angeles, Tanabe was hired as the head chef at Shiloh’s Kosher Steakhouse. This position demanded him to get creative with his dishes, and this challenge resulted in unique, delicious, original menus.

The skills he developed in the kitchen were soon put to the test in front of the camera, as Tanabe became a Chopped champion, a regular on NBC’s Food Fighters, and a contestant on Season 12 of Bravo’s Top Chef. Off-camera, Tanabe focused on opening Mexikosher, one of the most popular Kosher restaurants in the United States.

In Mexikosher, Tanabe presents many dishes from his restaurant, as well as original appetizers, soups, mains, sides, and desserts inspired by Mexican tradition that are 100 percent kosher. These include apricot and habanero glazed chicken wings, roasted chestnut and chipotle stew, empanadas, pequito peppers stuffed with spicy tuna tartare, chorizo and duck cassulet with fava beans, gorditas de carno, Mexico City fish tacos, and more.
