More About Joan Nathan's Jewish Holiday Cookbook by Joan Nathan
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 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. There are dishes 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 something exotic--Algerian Chicken Tagine with Quinces or Seven-Fruit Haroset from Surinam--or rediscover an American favorite like Pineapple Noodle Kugel or Charlestonian Broth with -Soup Bunch- 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 Holiday Kitchen
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.

The Jewish Holiday Kitchen, Joan Nathan's classic, was originally published 25 years ago. Now, to mark its silver anniversary, which happily coincides with the 350th anniversary of the arrival of the first Jews in America, there's Joan Nathan's Jewish Holiday Cookbook, a treasure-trove of tradition that combines the original Jewish Holiday Kitchen and The Jewish Holiday Baker with extras from her syndicated TV show and New York Times articles. The nearly 400 recipes are fully updated, revised and re-tested and come from Jewish cuisine that took root around the worldin Israel, Egypt, Mexico, Yemen, Bulgaria, Poland, Russia and beyond. Some of the recipes are vestiges of what families have lost, but all celebrate the importance of the traditional food, in all its wonderful regional variation, that has become the culinary mortar binding the culture together. Following the Jewish holiday calendar, Nathan starts with the Sabbath meal, then moves from Rosh Hashanah to Shavuot. Mazel tov, Joan! You've given us a new, very usable family heirloom.
