Plus a guide to the major Jewish festivals including the why and hows of much-loved symbolic dishes such as Sufganiot (Israeli-style doughnuts) and moist and moreish Wine and Spice Lekach (festival cake). A special section on preparing for Passover with innovative and traditional menus and dishes such as Ugat Schekademe (a chocolate and almond cake), Lemon and Passion Fruit Curd, and Tomato and Orange Soup with Little Knaidlach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best jewish cookbook- but... 8 July 2011
By Lynda G
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a great book and I have worn out 2 previous copies- all recipes are fabulous and use 'normal' ingredients, The only 'but' is it is in a white embossed cover!!! What were the printers thinking? So if you are getting this book (which you should) then also get some sticky back plastic to cover it before you use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for every kitchen, Jewish or not! 3 Jan 2001
By A Customer
An essential book for everybody who wants to sink his teeth into traditional as well as contemporary Jewish cooking ... oh, and into good food. It gives an easy step-by-step guide on the "how", as well as information on the "why" ... foolproof receipes for delicious food from all corners of the world. Not only a receipe book as such, this book gives you some insight into Jewish traditions, and if you have to entertain a larger party, you'll find everything in here too. Clearly a must for every kitchen, be it Jewish or not!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jewish cook book 30 Aug 2011
This book is great and very traditional! It's lovely and useful to read about the origins of some of the dishes! The only thing that would be more useful to me and I'm sure other readers would be to have more photographs of the dishes! This somehow makes it more inviting to make and also would help to see how the dish should turn out in the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 12 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Have always found Evelyn Rose recipes clear and fool-proof--very dependable to know what you're going to cook will turn out to be delicious. This version surpasses the other editions. The menu suggestions are inspiring and clarity of amounts are very helpful! Have given it to my daughter as a gift as my own older edition is falling apart, but I'm tempted to buy a copy of this one for myself as well.
The parcel arrived within a working day and in excelllent condition.
