The concept for this book has been building for the last decade. During these years the author has been teaching, out of her own kitchen, various groups of friends how to cook and put together menus. At the end of the day, everyone needs and loves to eat, especially when what's on offer is made with love. And the truth is, a thoughtfully prepared dish is far more interesting than a perfectly prepared one. In fact, the author never approaches any dish with the idea that it will be perfect. Not only is this attitude freeing, but it inspires her to try new ingredients, flavors, and techniques. She has prepared the recipes in the book dozens of times; they're tried and true, foolproof, and beautiful.
Her students always want to know what goes with what, so she organized the recipes into menus, named for the way the dishes make her feel. There's a Vibrant menu, filled with color, which inherently translates to flavor; the Crisp menu is loaded with pleasing crunch; the Saucy menu highlights the transformational power of a well-made yet simple sauce. The menu arrangements are simply suggestions; feel free to mix and match as you like. But never, ever skimp on the passion you put into making any dish, right down to a simple salad dressing. Because when it comes to cooking, what you put into it is what you get out of it.

Kim Kushner comes from a huge family her Moroccan-born mother was raised in Israel, along with eight siblings. Spending childhood summers in Israel with her extended family, Kim learned to cook by eating, and by participating in family feasts. Hands-on experience with fresh and international ingredients gave Kim an edge when she began her studies at the prestigious Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, where she excelled in their Professional Culinary Program.
Her culinary style, much like her life, is a study in Modern Orthodoxy: her kitchen is Kosher, and very much in line with her upbringing and heritage; yet, she is young, and her perspective is fresh and new. She's become known for her healthy, seasonal, and hearty salads made from locally-grown produce not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Kosher cuisine.
For Kim, food is tangible and social the effort you put into it comes back to you many times over, in the form of friendships, health, flattery, and fun. The feedback she loves getting most from her client is that they were not only inspired to try her recipes at home, but to make some changes to them it's proof to her that she's right: anyone can cook, and everyone should cook.

If, like me, you have several shelves full of cookery books, you probably don't feel that you need another. But this one has a great deal to recommend it and I loved it.
I liked many things about this book but the best thing is that every dish has its own, full-page beautiful illustration so you can see exactly how the dish should look.
For those not blessed with food decorating prowess or who feel insecure about the finished product, all you have to do is look at the photo accompanying the recipe and you can see exactly how the food is supposed to look. --Gloria Deutsch, Esra Magazine
Modern Menu is a book wanting to be cooked from. The print is easy to read. The photos are glorious. The recipes are simple and exciting. The rewards are vibrant flavors, healthy eating and exciting discoveries. --Abbe Odenwalder, This is How I Cook - Blog
