Description: Here is a book for every Jewish cook -- for the one who keeps a kosher household all year 'round and the one who likes to cook a traditional Jewish meal only at the holidays, for the cook who has been running a home for twenty-five years and the one who's about to prepare a first Seder. 

The Jewish Holiday Cookbook is filled with 250 strikingly original recipes, many of them annotated with fascinating stories about the customs and cultures from which they derive. Chicken soup and gefilte fish, brisket and potato pancakes are here -- what Jewish cookbook would be complete without them? -- but The Jewish Holiday Cookbook goes far beyond the expected, presenting exciting, authentic recipes from the many varied traditions of Jewish cuisine all over the world. Whether they're classic dishes or brand-new discoveries, all the recipes have been thoroughly tested and adapted for the modern kitchen. 

Truly international in scope, the recipes -- both Ashkenazic and Sephardic -- are drawn from such unexpected locales as Turkey, Greece, Cuba, Iraq, and Algeria as well as Eastern and Western Europe. The book's distinctive features include a glossary of ingredients and, for easy reference, an index of recipes by category of dish -- Appetizers, Drinks, Salads and Vegetables, Grains and Pasta, Soups, Fish, Meat, Poultry, Dairy, Breads and Muffins, Fruits and Puddings, Cakes, Cookies, Pastries, and Candies. All recipes are kosher and are designated as meat, dairy, or pareve, and dishes suitable for Pesach are marked. 

Most important, the book is arranged according to the way people will use it, by holiday: Shabbat, RoshHashanahandYom Kippur, Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret and Sim-hat Torah, Hanukkah, Tu B'Shevat, Purim, Pesach, Yom Ha'Atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim, Lag B'Omer, and Shavuot. 

Beautiful, original, and comprehensive, The Jewish Holiday Cookbook is an invaluable reference work and an incredibly useful tool. It belongs in every Jewish home.
