Author(s): Evelyn Rose
This new illustrated edition of Evelyn Rose's classic book has been completely revised and updated by Evelyn's daughter Judi, ensuring it continues to be the culinary bible of Jewish cuisine. Packed with mouth-watering ideas for both family meals and those special occasions when you want to impress without spending hours in the kitchen, the book contains over 1000 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. A guide to the major Jewish festivals, such as Passover, explains the 'why' and 'hows' of much-loved symbolic dishes as well as providing menu plans.
