"Joan Nathan is the authority on Jewish cooking, from the folkloric-cultural-historical perspective, and the food angle as well."                --Mollie Katzen,  author of The Moosewood Cookbook

"This is how holiday cooking should be--warm, welcoming, and straight from the heart."
--Anne Willan, author of Cook It Right
Only the best cookbooks stand the test of time, and this rich assemblage of holiday recipes by Joan Nathan, award-winning food writer and host of the PBS series Jewish Cooking in America, has brought the joy and festivity of holiday cooking to Jewish households for more than two decades.
        Here are 250 recipes for main courses, soups, appetizers, breads, and desserts culled from around the world to help you enhance your family's celebrations of the sixteen major holidays. In addition to the foods you remember from your mother's table, there are dishes that date as far back as the Second Temple, as well as contemporary American Jewish creations.  Explaining their origins and the holidays that have shaped them, Nathan peppers these delicious recipes with delightful stories about the people who make them today.
        Try exotic dishes like the Yemenite High Holiday Soup Stew or the Persian Pomegranate-Walnut Chicken. Or, closer to home, choose the Charlestonian Broth and Matzah Balls. No matter what you select, this essential book will bring the rich variety and heritage of Jewish cooking to your holiday table year round.

Review:

With recipes from around the world -- from Algeria to Russia, from Italy to Mexico -- this is the most complete collection of specific dishes for the eight major holidays, the Sabbath, and all the special occasions in the life of the Jewish family -- weddings, birth ceremonies, and bar and bat mitzvahs. Each holiday or occasion is considered in terms of its history, religious food requirements, and traditions, with several suggested menus. Nathan updates preparation techniques with modern time-saving devices and new kosher food products without sacrificing authenticity. The classic Jewish cookbook, with over 50 new recipes in this latest edition!
