Cookbook Review: “Deep Flavors” by Kenneth M. Horwitz

Do you love food? Are you curious about how to cook Kosher? Then you might want to check out Kenneth M. Horwitz’ award-winning cookbook Deep Flavors.

Cookbook Review: "Deep Flavors" by Kenneth M. Horwitz

Summary of Deep Flavors

Horwitz is a Southern Jew and this cookbook reflects that. Not only does it have traditional Jewish Kosher fare, but it also has popular recipes from other cultures reimagined as Kosher dishes. In addition to the recipes, the author includes tips for preparation, his wisdom for sourcing ingredients, and suggestions for prep work.

What I Like About Deep Flavors

The recipes’ ingredients lists are in a different font than the rest of the book, so they stand out. This makes it easy to locate them when you are planning your menu and its associated shopping list.

There are enough photographs to make the book interesting, but they take a backseat to the content, which is why I purchase a cookbook in the first place.

What Didn’t Work for Me

Call me a font snob, but I’m not a big fan of his font choice for the ingredients lists. I think it detracts from the overall design, which is soft and pleasant to look at.

I also would have appreciated different breaks within the copy. Having to turn the page in the middle of a thought can make an otherwise easy to follow recipe challenging.

What I’d Love to See in the Second Edition

Other than fixing the breaks and closing another font of the ingredient lists, I think the book is fine as is. Time for Horwitz to move on to his next cookbook!


If you love to experiment with new ways of cooking and haven’t tried Kosher yet, this might be an excellent entry point for you. And, if you already enjoy Kosher cooking, but would like to experiment with non-Jewish dishes, this is also a good option for you.
