    How to Cook dishes from Jewish tradition


    Jewish Jews have lived in many countries, including the Middle East, the Americas, Europe and elsewhere. Wherever Jews have lived, they have always eaten local foods, selecting ingredients and creating dishes to comply with the requirements of "halakha" (the body of interpretation of Jewish religious law) - "kosher" means foods (and food preparation practises) that are in keeping with Jewish dietary laws.

    Perhaps best-known in North America are those Jewish dishes which originated in, and were influenced by, eastern European cuisine, but every Jewish community - Ashkenazic, Sephardic, Yemenite, Italian and others - has met the requirements of Judaism in its own way and with its own cuisine.

    Some popular Jewish recipes and dishes include:
    • Baba ghanoush - Mashed eggplant with various seasonings. In Israel, it is made from mashed grilled eggplant with tahini or mayonnaise.

      Baba ghanoush

    • Blintz - Thin pancakes stuffed with a cheese filling, and then fried in oil. They are eaten on Jewish holidays such as Hanukkah and Shavuot.

      Blintzes

    • Borscht - Vegetable soup made from beetroot.

    • Chicken soup.

    • Falafel - A fried ball made from chickpeas or fava beans.

    • Gefilte fish - Poached fish patties, usually made from carp.

    • Israeli salad - Finely diced tomatoes and cucumbers, dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.


    • Kibbeh - A shell made from bulgar wheat, stuffed with ground lamb and fried.

      Kibbeh

    • Kugel - A baked dish made from egg noodles or potatoes and eggs.

    • Knish - Baked or fried dough stuffed with cheese, ground meat, mashed potato, onions, or sauerkraut.

    • Kreplach - Small stuffed dumplings. They are typically stuffed with ground meat or mashed potato, cooked by boiling, and served with chicken soup.

    • Jachnun - A traditional dish of Yemenite Jews. It is rolled dough baked on a low heat for many hours, which is eaten with hard-boiled eggs, tomato dip, and skhug (a hot sauce made from peppers and spices).

    • Latkes - Potato pancakes.

    • Lox - A cured salmon fillet.

    • Matzah ball - Balls made from ground matzah (a Jewish flatbread), and chicken fat (schmaltz). The balls are often eaten in chicken broth as matzah ball soup.

    • Pastrami - Raw beef, salted, dried and seasoned with various herbs and spices.

    • Shlishkes - Dumplings made from mashed potato, egg, flour and water. The dumplings are cooked by boiling and then rolled in sugar and hot buttered caramelized breadcrumbs.

    • Tzimmes - Diced carrots with dried fruits (prunes or raisins) and chunks of meat. The dish is cooked slowly and flavored with cinnamon and honey.

    • Vareniki - Dumplings stuffed with cabbage, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, mashed potatoes, meat or sauerkraut.

    • Vorschmack - A salty meat dish made from ground meat, anchovies or herring, and onions. It is usually garnished with salty pickles.

    Product Description:
    This cookbook features recipes for German-Jewish cuisine as it existed in Germany prior to World War II, and as refugees later adapted it in the United States and elsewhere. Because these dishes differ from more familiar Jewish food, they will be a discovery for many people. With a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, this indispensable collection of recipes includes numerous soups, both chilled and hot; vegetable dishes; meats, poultry, and fish; fruit desserts; cakes; and the German version of challah, Berches. These elegant and mostly easy-to-make recipes range from light summery fare to hearty winter foods. The Gropmans—a mother-daughter author pair—have honored the original recipes Gabrielle learned after arriving as a baby in Washington Heights from Germany in 1939, while updating their format to reflect contemporary standards of recipe writing.

    Six recipe chapters offer easy-to-follow instructions for weekday meals, Shabbos and holiday meals, sausage and cold cuts, vegetables, coffee and cake, and core recipes basic to the preparation of German-Jewish cuisine.

    Some of these recipes come from friends and family of the authors; others have been culled from interviews conducted by the authors, prewar German-Jewish cookbooks, nineteenth-century American cookbooks, community cookbooks, memoirs, or historical and archival material. The introduction explains the basics of Jewish diet (kosher law). The historical chapter that follows sets the stage by describing Jewish social customs in Germany and then offering a look at life in the vibrant émigré community of Washington Heights in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s.

    Vividly illustrated with more than fifty drawings by Megan Piontkowski and photographs by Sonya Gropman that show the cooking process as well as the delicious finished dishes, this cookbook will appeal to readers curious about ethnic cooking and how it has evolved, and to anyone interested in exploring delicious new recipes.

    Jerry Seinfeld's fictional dentist Tim Whatley famously converted to Judaism "for the jokes," but if there's one thing that defines Jewish culture as much as humor it's food. Miri Rotkovitz spent her childhood in the kitchen of her grandmother, Ruth Morrison Simon, whose commitment to international Jewish fare left a lasting impression. Bubbe and me in the Kitchen is a touching, humorous, versatile kosher cookbook, which celebrates the storied recipes that characterize and reinvent Jewish food culture.

    Offering time-tested culinary treasures from her grandmother's recipe box, plus more than 80 original recipes of Miri's own, this kosher cookbook includes Ashkenazi favorites such as babka, brisket, and matzo ball soup, and more global dishes, from za'atar pita chips and forbidden rice bowls to watermelon gazpacho and Persian chicken stew. Complete with holiday menus, this kosher cookbook is just as likely to spark memories and spur conversation as it is to enliven your meals.

    More than a kosher cookbook, Bubbe and Me in the Kitchen includes:

    • An Overview covering generational perspectives on keeping kosher
    • Over 100 Recipes reflecting the diversity of traditional and modern Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Mizrahi cuisine for a comprehensive kosher cookbook
