About this title


Marlene Sorosky, America's favorite party planner and James Beard Award-winning author of Entertaining on the Run, makes the Jewish holidays come alive with simple, festive menus providing nearly 150 recipes and essential prayers and rituals that make it easy for home cooks to celebrate all year round. From Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah to the Sabbath, Passover, and celebrations, including the Bar Mitzvah, each holiday chapter contains menus, game plans, table decorations, fascinating historical information, important prayers, and celebration ideas.

Here's the must-have cookbook for the modern home cook who has little time but lots of enthusiasm for keeping up with Jewish traditions.


There's more than just recipes here: in addition to great menus for every Jewish holiday, Sorosky includes a short history of the occasion, the appropriate blessings, decorations and centerpieces, and essential religious items and foods--in short, everything you need to know and have to make your holiday meal a success. What's more, she provides a game plan for organizing your time in the kitchen and getting everything on the table at the right time and temperature. As an added bonus, Sorosky includes "Extra Points": special projects for children, invitation ideas, or special decorations to lift your celebration above the ordinary.

In her foreword, Marlene Sorosky admits that her upbringing in a tyranically Orthodox household spoiled Jewish holidays for her until she was well into adulthood. While writing this book, however, she discovered the joyous spirit of both the holidays and Judaism--apparent in every page of Fast and Festive Meals for the Jewish Holidays.
