Kudos to Daniella, who took her children’s allergies as a challenge to overcome, instead of throwing up her hands in despair. Her search for foods that her family could tolerate and love took her down a long road of trial and error, and has created a masterpiece that any mom can easily put into practice.
Daniella teamed up with the famous and well loved Norene Gilletz, who brought years of experience and some really great taste buds. I have loved Norene’s simple and straightforward, yet truly delicious recipes, for years now. This book follows her signature style perfectly, with delicious food, and quick and easy recipes. I am happily adding this book to my cookbook collection, and I think you will be happy if you do the same. – Estee

“As soon as I met Daniella, I was impressed with her passion and enthusiasm. I saw such great talent and creativity in her work.” – Norene Gilletz, matriarch of kosher cookbooks
As one of the first authors to publish a kosher cookbook, Norene Gilletz has spent over forty years as a visionary leader of the kosher food revolution. In the years since the release of her first cookbook, Norene has predicted trends, served as a consultant for industry professionals, and met with numerous cookbook authors. But one particular phone call from a young, aspiring cook named Daniella Silver opened a new page in the world of kosher cookbooks. “She reminded me so much of myself when I was about her age: a young mom, involved in the community, highly energetic and committed. Her passion for creating spectacular food from simple ingredients blew me away.”
For the first time ever, Norene took on a protégé. “Daniella and I make a perfect partnership as a writing team because we each have unique strengths that merge together, resulting in one clear vision.” No longer just an advisor, Norene has now joined forces with Daniella to pass on her legacy and wisdom to a new generation.
What started with that one phone call turned into a remarkable collaboration – and eventually a close friendship – between these two talented women. The result is The Silver Platter: an intergenerational cookbook that combines the best of both worlds, with Daniella’s modern recipes and presentation and Norene’s fifty years of cooking experience, with her tips and advice on every page. To help create The Silver Platter,Norene brought an incredible amount of wisdom and culinary expertise to the proverbial table, and Daniella matched it with her fresh outlook and youthful creativity.
