I’m excited to announce this last-minute giveaway of Aviva Kanoff’s first self-published cookbook, The No-Potato Passover! Yes, Passover is just a few days away and Aviva’s cookbook is filled with simple and delicious recipes that you’ll want to cook year round. Encouraging cooks to think outside of the “bag of potatoes”, Aviva, an artist and a graduate of the French Culinary Institute, shares recipes with her readers using healthful and colorful ingredients, such as quinoa and spaghetti squash (two items I love to use almost every week). I can’t wait to try the salt & pepper kugel, spanish quinoa, coconut crusted chicken with plum dipping sauce, blueberry crumble and so much more!
In The No-Potato Passover, you’ll get more than just fantastic recipes! The pages are FILLED with Aviva’s stunning photography from her travels around the world. My favorites are the beets on page 17, Aviva herself jumping for joy in Sedona, Arizona on page 88 and the native carrying bananas (or are those plantains?) on her head on page 147. You can actually leave this cookbook on your coffee table for people to enjoy! How great is that?!?
