Publisher Comments:

Jewish holidays are defined by 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 toJewish 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, Nathanpresents 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. There aredishes that you will remember from your mother's table and dishes that go back to the Second Temple, family recipes that you thought were lost and other families' recipes that you have yet to discover.Explaining their origins and the holidays that have shaped them, Nathan spices these delicious recipes with delightful stories about the people who have kept these traditions alive.

Try somethingexotic-Algerian Chicken Tagine with Quinces or Seven-Fruit Haroset from Surinam--or rediscover an American favorite like Pineapple Noodle Kugel or Charlestonian Broth with SoupBunch and Matzah Balls. No matter what you select, this essential book, which combines and updates Nathan's classic cookbooks The Jewish Holiday Baker and The Jewish HolidayKitchen with a new generation of recipes, will bring the rich variety and heritage of Jewish cooking to your table on the holidays and throughout the year.

From the Hardcover edition.
