The book emphasises the centrality of Jewish food to Jewish life, and showcases Ruth's fascination with the origins of ingredients and meanings of dishes. The book's 150 accessible recipes enable you to make authentic Jewish food without the intimidation. Chapters include starters, salads, preserves, desserts, fish, poultry, meat. There are also chapters on Jewish bread and Passover dishes, and a demystifying glossary of terms and easy-to-digest breakdown of Jewish dietary laws.
