Description: Homemade challah fresh from the oven...plates piled high with hot, crispy latkes... chopped liver...stuffed derma...babka. If healthful Jewish cooking sounds like an oxymoron, think again. Thanks to Harriet Roth, you can now feast on a variety of classic and nontraditional dishes-full of all the freshness and flavor you expect from your mother's kitchen-without the guilt. 

Roth, a former director of the Pritikin Longevity Center Cooking School and a true pioneer in the art of healthful cooking, shows you how to trim fat and cholesterol, decrease sodium, and use alternative ingredients to create savory Jewish comfort food. Adapting more than 300 recipes to meet today's nutritional standards, she shares: 

  • Invaluable tips on stocking your healthy kitchen 
  • Nutritional contents for each recipe, including cholesterol, total fat, saturated fat, fiber, sodium, and calories 
  • Complete menu recommendations for every Jewish holiday 
  • Hundreds of recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, noodles and grains, vegetables, fish, poultry, strudels, fruit desserts, and baking suggestions that offer minimum fat and maximum nutrition and flavor 

Complete with personal reminiscences and a glossary of Yiddish terms, this health conscious gourmet cookbook will open up a world of nutritious and tasty meals for Jewish and non-Jewish cooks alike.
