Blend a dash of Kosher with a pinch of Creole and you have the Kosher Creole Cookbook . The authors have combined two famous culinary traditions: the Creole-a blend of certain aspects of French, Spanish, African, and American cooking-and the Jewish, dating from biblical times. Those who keep Kosher can now savor the Creole cuisine for which New Orleans is famous. Imaginative substitutes that unite to create authentic Creole flavor serve to replace ingredients that are in conflict with the laws of Kashruth. Arranged by month, the recipes highlight feasts and festivals in the Jewish calendar or in the city of New Orleans. Each chapter is also introduced by fascinating sketches about the history, traditions, and culture of the Crescent City. Jewish Week calls this volume "one of the most unusual cookbooks" seen in recent years. Kosher Creole Cookbook "combines two cuisines which would seem to have no business being together-kosher cooking with Creole cooking. This is a delightful and unusual addition to your collection of cookbooks." Mildred L. Covert and Sylvia P. Gerson have carefully researched and created recipes that adapt the characteristic flavors of each cuisine, whether it's Creole, Cajun, or Southern, to ensure that the traditional can keep Kosher without giving up flavor. The two New Orleanians have written three other Kosher cookbooks: Kosher Cajun Cookbook , Kosher Southern-Style Cookbook , and A Kid's Kosher Cooking Cruise (pb), all published by Pelican.

Homemaker Mildred Covert was born, raised, and educated in New Orleans. She learned the arts of homemaking and cooking at her grandmother's knee and soon became a devoted cook and baker. Because of her own strong ethnic background and her love of her native New Orleans, with its world-renowned cuisine, she began to experiment early in life with the best of both worlds. Mrs. Covert is actively involved in her community. She has served as President of Beth Israel Sisterhood, as Board Member of the Congregation Beth Israel Sisterhood and of the New Orleans Chapter of Hadassah, and as Vice-President of Education at the Beth Israel Hebrew School. A former member of the Jewish Community Center, she is an active member of the Tulane/Newcomb Alumni Association and of the Louisiana Arts and Crafts Council.
