Description

There could be no more festive way to introduce Jewish children to their Jewish heritage than through the food associated with the holidays. And no better person to do it than Joan Nathan, whose great enthusiasm and knowledge have gained her a national reputation as the maven of the Jewish kitchen.

Here are seventy child-centered recipes and cooking activities from around the world in which the entire family can participate. Covering the ten major holidays, each of the activities has a different focus--such as Eastern Europe, Biblical Israel, contemporary America--and together they present a vast array of foods, flavors, and ideas. The recipes are old and new, traditional and novel--everything from hamantashen to pretzel bagels, chicken soup with matzah balls to matzah pizza, cheese blintzes to vegetarian chopped liver, hallah to halvah, fruit kugel to Persian pomegranate punch.

First published in paperback in l988, The Children's Jewish Holiday Kitchen has now been redesigned and contains 20 additional delicious recipes and 30 delightful new drawings.
