Jewish Holiday Cookbook. By Joan Nathan
Jewish Holidays are celebrated in food
Yet Jewish cooking is always changing, encompassing the flavors of the world, embracing local culinary traditions of every place, in which Jews have lived and adapting them to Jewish observance.
This collection, the culmination of Joan Nathan's decades of gathering Jewish recipes from around the world, is a tour through the Jewish holidays as told in food.
For each holiday, Nathan presents menus from different cuisines - Moroccan, Russian, German, and contemporary American are just a few
- that show how the traditions of Jewish food have taken on new forms around the world.
