Released in time for Chanukah 2010, Geller Introduces “Quick & Kosher: Meals in Minutes”
New York, NY- The bride who knew nothing is back!

The 312 page, full color, hard cover cookbook features hilariously honest anecdotes, more than 215 recipes and 134 mouth-watering photos. Available at Feldheim.com, Kosher.com, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Jewish bookstores, it makes a great gift for your favorite busy cook!
“It was wonderful to know that cooks everywhere wanted to get out of the kitchen and enjoy the food as much as I did!” said Jamie Geller of her first book’s success. “I promise it is not sacrilege to make a delicious meal in minutes no matter how strong your memories of bubby slaving over steaming pots in the kitchen. I am so excited to share hundreds of my favorite easy-to-create recipes that look and taste like you fussed all day – only you didn’t. You don’t have time for that!”
Geller, who launched the Quick & Kosher franchise in 2007 with the release of her first book “Quick & Kosher: Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing,” was a stranger to the kitchen when she first got married. She was determined to find a way to serve delicious meals without wasting precious time. As her family and career rapidly grew and time condensed, cooking took on a whole new meaning for this “mompreneur”. She set out to discover family-friendly recipes she could create in moments, without losing her cool!
“Quick and Kosher: Meals in Minutes” brings you over 100 of Geller’s favorite meals along with incredibly valuable tips and tools. She will help you stock your shelves with key cookware and turn your kitchen into a comfort zone. Her girl-next-door attitude and poignant and comedic commentary make this a book you’ll want to take from kitchen to couch to curl up and enjoy.
Best of all, Jamie Geller knows that some days you have more time than others, so the book is full of fast facts and meals are categorized by total time from Prep and Cook to Serve, lovingly abbreviated to “PCS”.

She confidently wrote her first cookbook, Quick & Kosher: Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing, teaching beginner and experienced cooks alike how to create superb meals in less time than it takes to say “What’s a spatula?” An instant success, the book put Jamie on a trajectory to culinary stardom.
