Jewish holidays are traditionally observed at home, but increasingly restaurants are the settings for Passover Seders and other celebrations. Consider that Spago's Seder is one of the hardest reservations to get all year. Over the past 15 years, American chefs have created some pretty good kosher dishes to serve at these dinners. Now Judy Zeidler, cookbook author and host of the Jewish Television Network's "Judy's Kitchen," has collected recipes from 37 chefs in her new book, "Master Chefs Cook Kosher" (Chronicle Books, $24.95).
Among the chefs: Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, Joachim Splichal, Michel Richard, Yujean Kang, Ken Frank, Evan Kleiman, Tommy Tang, Bradley Ogden, Roger Verge, Mark Peel and Nancy Silverton, Stephan Pyles, Johanne Killeen and George Germon, Hans Rockenwagner, Joyce Goldstein and Patrick Healy.
The cookbook is also notable for being one of the few to be published with a correction page. Most publishers simply wait for a second printing to fix mistakes, but in the style of a newspaper For the Record box, Chronicle has listed several clarifications opposite the book's title page.
