Although I thought I had a good idea of what kosher was, I was surprised to discover how complex fulfilling its obligations is. The author presented the process in a way that was both interesting and easy to understand. Another surprise was the reasons people who are not of Jewish descent have for using kosher products. Most interesting of all was the discussion of ways that kosher has evolved to include non-traditional dishes and recent debates about the ethical treatment of animals. I would definitely recommend this to those who want to know why kosher is important to those who observe it.
