Jewish Recipes --> Recipes --> Jewish Cooking --> Gail Ashkanazi-Hankin

In the early 1980s, when Americans started counting fat grams and watching cholesterol intake, Gail Ashkanazi-Hankin of Denver, Colorado decided to continue that healthful vigil during Passover. After all, it seemed counterproductive to work hard at preparing tasty yet healthy meals all year long, then eat foods laden with oil, schmaltz, and whole eggs during Passover.

For centuries, it was believed that these ingredients were necessary to provide the proper texture and flavor in foods that could not contain any leavening ingredients because of the laws of Passover. Ashkanazi-Hankin utilized her recipe adapting skills to debunk this long-held belief. The result is Passover Lite, a cookbook just released by Pelican Publishing Co.

Gail Ashkanazi-Hankin is also an artist, and she illustrated her cookbook with original line-art drawings throughout the text. She used watercolor and colored pencil to create the book jacket art.

The author is a St.Louis native. She graduated from Parkway Central High School, and was confirmed at Shaare Emeth. She attended Fontbonne College and received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Kansas City Art Institute.
