    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.

Refreshing salads, hearty stuffed vegetable and meat dishes, and wholesome dumpling, fish and rice dishes all accompany tales of friendship, loyalty, persecution, escape, exile, and, of course, celebration.

    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.

    • The African American Heritage Cookbook Traditional Recipes and Fond Remembrances From Alabama s Renowned Tuskegee Institute
    Product Description:
    For more than 100 years, the small Southern town of Tuskegee, Alabama, has been a mecca for African Americans. The Tuskegee Institute, founded by former slave Booker T. Washington in 1881, grew from a fledgling school to become a major center of American progress and education. This unique narrative cookbook traces the history and heritage of Tuskegee through reminiscences, vintage photographs, poetry, journal entries, and more than 200 recipes for delicious appetizers, entrées, side dishes, breads, beverages, and desserts that reflect the diverse and mouthwatering flavors of Southern African American cuisine.

    The African American Heritage Cookbook brings alive the pride and courage of the thousands of Tuskegee alumni, among them George Washington Carver and Rosa Parks, who have gone forth to change America and the world. Many Tuskegee graduates have contributed memories, vignettes, and classic Southern recipes—including Crab Bisque, Island Soup, Mom’s Devilish Catfish Stew, Smothered “Yard Bird,” Louisiana Gumbo, Creole Rice, Sweet Potato Casserole, Spoon Bread, Peach Pandowdy, and Dr. Carver’s Peanut Cake with Molasses.

    More than a collection of wonderful recipes, The African American Heritage Cookbook is a tribute to the abundantly rich history and civil rights legacy that have made the Tuskegee Institute a landmark and an inspiration.

    • The New Mediterranean Jewish Table Old World Recipes for the Modern Home
    Product Description:
    For thousands of years, the people of the Jewish Diaspora have carried their culinary traditions and kosher laws throughout the world. In the United States, this has resulted primarily in an Ashkenazi table of matzo ball soup and knishes, brisket and gefilte fish. But Joyce Goldstein is now expanding that menu with this comprehensive collection of over four hundred recipes from the kitchens of three Mediterranean Jewish cultures: the Sephardic, the Maghrebi, and the Mizrahi.
     
    The New Mediterranean Jewish Table is an authoritative guide to Jewish home cooking from North Africa, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, and the Middle East. It is a treasury filled with vibrant, seasonal recipes—both classic and updated—that embrace fresh fruits and vegetables; grains and legumes; small portions of meat, poultry, and fish; and a healthy mix of herbs and spices. It is also the story of how Jewish cooks successfully brought the local ingredients, techniques, and traditions of their new homelands into their kitchens. With this varied and appealing selection of Mediterranean Jewish recipes, Joyce Goldstein promises to inspire new generations of Jewish and non-Jewish home cooks alike with dishes for everyday meals and holiday celebrations.

    • King Solomon s Table A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from Around the World
    Product Description:
    From the James Beard Award-winning, much-loved cookbook author and authority: a definitive compendium of Jewish recipes from around the globe and across the ages.

    Driven by a passion for discovery, the biblical King Solomon is said to have sent emissaries on land and sea to all corners of the ancient world, initiating a mass cross-pollination of culinary cultures that continues to bear fruit today. With Solomon’s appetites and explorations in mind, in these pages Joan Nathan—“the queen of American Jewish cooking” (Houston Chronicle)—gathers together more than 170 recipes, from Israel to Italy to India and beyond.

    Here are classics like Yemenite Chicken Soup with Dill, Cilantro, and Parsley; Slow-Cooked Brisket with Red Wine, Vinegar, and Mustard; and Apple Kuchen as well as contemporary riffs on traditional dishes such as Smoky Shakshuka with Tomatoes, Peppers, and Eggplant; Double-Lemon Roast Chicken; and Roman Ricotta Cheese Crostata. Here, too, are an array of dishes from the world over, from Socca (Chickpea Pancakes with Fennel, Onion, and Rosemary) and Sri Lankan Breakfast Buns with Onion Confit to Spanakit (Georgian Spinach Salad with Walnuts and Cilantro) and Keftes Garaz (Syrian Meatballs with Cherries and Tamarind).

    Gorgeously illustrated and filled with fascinating historical details, personal histories, and delectable recipes, King Solomon’s Table showcases the dazzling diversity of a culinary tradition more than three thousand years old.
