The Jewish Festival Cookbook Author:Fannie Engle & Gertrude Blair Although this book includes recipes from many parts of the world, showing the international character of Jewish dishes, it is not written as a history of Jewish cooking. It is designed to place emphasis on the particular dishes that have a background in the rich customs, legends, and symbols connected with Jewish life. Throughout the book these ... more »dishes are placed in their holiday pattern. It is truly a guide in preparing and serving the symbolic and traditional special foods and meals eaten during festival times.
The authors have intentionally taken the Orthodox Jewish observance as their standard, but hopefully this book will also be used by Reform and Conservative groups, by non-Jews, by schools and by cooks everywhere.« less
