Joan Nathan is the author of several Jewish cookbooks, including The Jewish Holiday Kitchen, The Jewish Holiday Baker, and Jewish Cooking in America, which in 1994 was named Best Cookbook of the Year by the IACP and received the James Beard Award for Best American Cookbook. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband and their three children.
Seventy child-friendly recipes and cooking activities from around the world will draw the entire family into the spirit and fun of preparing Jewish holiday celebrations. Covering the ten major holidays, each of the activities has a different focus--such as Eastern Europe, biblical Israel, contemporary America--and together they present a vast array of foods, flavors, and ideas.
The recipes are old and new, traditional and novel--everything from hamantashen to pretzel bagels, chicken soup with matzah balls to matzah pizza, fruit kugel to Persian pomegranate punch.
