Description: The recipes in the Kosher Creole Cookbook bring together two famous culinary traditions: the Creole -- a blend of certain aspects of French, Spanish, African, and American Indian cooking -- and the Jewish, dating from biblical times. Those who keep kosher can now savor the Creole cuisine for which New Orleans is famous -- where the original recipes call for ingredients that are in conflict with the laws of kashruth, the authors have found imaginative substitutes that combine to create authentic Creole flavor.
Arranged by month, the recipes highlight feasts and festivals that occur in the Jewish calendar or in the city of New Orleans. The authors list recipes that are specifically designed to work together; thus planning menus is made easy for the cook. In addition each chapter is introduced with fascinating sketches about facets of the history, traditions, and culture of the Crescent City.
This book is not only for those whose faith demands that they keep kosher; adventurous and creative cooks everywhere will delight in this innovative approach to Creole cooking.
