Publisher's Synopsis

THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE CLASSIC JEWISH COOKBOOK WITH NEW RECIPES AND MATERIAL

In this internationally acclaimed book, Claudia Roden interweaves more than 800 recipes with the stories and histories that have shaped Jewish cooking over the centuries. The recipes are treasures garnered from almost sixteen years of Roden's research around the world, enjoying the immense diversity of traditional Jewish food.

Roden shares the most essential dishes from her native Egypt and beyond, taking us on a journey through the Jewish Diaspora: from the Ashkenazi world there is hallah bread, wine-poached salmon and luscious plum tarts, and the Sephardi chapter boasts an array of tabbouleh, falafel and the inimitable orange Passover cake.

The result is a cookbook unlike any other: a learned, loving and delicious tribute to the variety and vitality of Jewish culture the world over. With new material for this special twenty-fifth anniversary edition, this is the definitive book of Jewish cuisine; a celebration of the food, and the people, that have shaped our culinary world as we know it.
