Additional Details

Description: The Jewish Festival Cookbook is designed as a guide in the preparation and serving of traditional foods and meals for festival times. It includes authentic family recipes and traditional menus for each of the important holidays of the year. These are given against a brief background covering the history and observance of the festival through the years, as well as the development of customs in various countries, particularly with reference to food. 

The book includes recipes from many parts of the world, showing the international character of Jewish cooking and the rich customs, legends, and symbols associated with it. 

Written in a lively and popular style, and with easy-to-follow recipes, this book will interest not only those who wish to maintain the traditional observance of the Jewish festivals in their homes, but also others who wish to learn more about them. Quite apart from its interest to cooks everywhere because of its excellent recipes, The Jewish Festival Cookbook is a useful and entertaining book for home, library, and school use.
