Cookbook Spotlight: Helen's delicious Pesach

Helen's delicious Pesach

Helen Goldrein, author of the blog Family Friends Food, has recently published a cookbook, Helen's delicious Pesach, which I believe will revolutionize your Pesach cooking! Helen’s new cookbook features 8-days-worth of breakfasts, meat-free main dishes, side dishes and salads, potato dishes, and cakes & desserts, that are all naturally gluten-free, and are also free from kitniot and gebrokhts. Helen has been cooking, and experimenting with food, for as long as she can remember, but when her daughter was born, she officially became a Jewish Mother, and she has been taking her responsibilities to feed, feed, feed very seriously ever since! Helen explains that being a mum has also refocused her attention on ensuring that the food she makes is as healthy as possible, as well as being delicious and that is exactly what you will find in Helen's delicious Pesach cookbook.

Here are three recipes from Helen's delicious Pesach:

Zucchini and Potato Tortilla

Zucchini & Potato Tortilla is one of Helen's breakfast recipe from the cookbook for a lazy morning breakfast or even a brunch.  Helen clarifies that “breakfast is often the hardest meal at Pesach, because we’re all so used to eating toast or cereal,” she added. “I worked hard to create eight deliciously different healthy breakfasts, so you and your family can enjoy a great start to the day, every day of the festival.”


Helen's Salmon With Pine Nuts, Rosemary and Orange pairs together crispy pine nuts with the fragrant flavor of rosemary and the tang of orange. After crunching your way through the delicious nut crust, the salmon is moist and tender. This salmon would be a great addition, not only to your Pesach menu, but you can also add the recipe to your menus all-year-round.

Lemon, Lavender, Almond Cake

Finish off your meal with this lovely Lemon, Lavender and Almond Cake. The lavender is a special addition to this cake, but for a simpler version you can omit the lavender for a delectable lemon and almond cake. In relation to this cake recipe and all the recipes from her cookbook, Helen explains that “although they’re all kosher for Pesach, these recipes are so delicious that at home we eat them all year!”
