I'm a big fan of checking out cookbooks from the library, mostly just to read and not cook from.
I own a couple of Jewish cookbooks and have checked out quite a lot. The one thing I notice in practically every Jewish cookbook is the lack of photographs of the food. This is pretty consistent across the board.
I was wondering, is the omission of photographs of food due to kosher law? Can anyone, Jewish or non-Jewish, please explain this as well as any other laws or rules regarding Jewish cookbooks?
Thanks and have a peaceful RoshHashana & Yom Kippur.
