Completely revised and updated by Evelyn's daughter and with color photos added, this truly encyclopedic classic is still the culinary bible of Jewish cuisine.
Packed with mouthwatering ideas for both family meals and those special occasions when cooks want to impress without spending hours in the kitchen, this definitive guide to kosher cooking contains more than 1,000 fail-safe recipes for which the author is justly celebrated. Ideal for novices and experienced cooks alike, the easy-to-follow recipes showcase the diversity of Jewish cooking which draws influences from Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, and Middle East. From soups and starters to desserts, breads, and baking, the recipes provide inspiration for everyday cooking as well as step-by step features on entertaining through the seasons. Healthier versions of traditional Jewish dishes like Oven-Fried Chicken, plus superb vegetarian recipes like Pesto Lasagne, are found alongside classic recipes especially adapted for the Jewish kitchen. A guide to the major Jewish festivals, such as Passover, explains the whys and hows of much-loved symbolic dishes—such as Sufganiot (Israeli-style doughnuts) and Wine and Spice Lekach (festival cake)—as well as providing menu plans. Includes dual measurements.
