The World of Jewish Entertaining
In this beautiful new book, acclaimed author and chef Rabbi Gil Marks offers a complete guide to entertaining for Jewish holidays and other family celebrations.
From the time Abraham and Sarah entertained passing strangers in their simple tent, hospitality has been a significant aspect of Jewish life. For generations, Jewish parents have taught their children how to create a traditional home, passing down many lifetimes of accumulated wisdom along with their family recipes. But as the world changes, Jewish entertaining changes too. Modern Jews want to add exciting new dishes to their traditional menus and they want a practical guide to serving elegant meals whether for a large crowd or an intimate gathering. Now, in the only book of its kind, "The World of Jewish Entertaining" demystifies the experience of entertaining.
Marks presents a "Guide for the Perplexed Host," practical advice, easy-to-follow recipes for a wide variety of dishes from the most homey and traditional foods to haute cuisine, and complete menus for
a Sephardic Seder a Baby-Naming Breakfast an Eclectic Purim Feast an All-Dessert Bar or Bat Mitzvah a Middle Eastern Wedding Shower an International Sabbath Dinner a Healthy New Year Dinner a Southern Jewish Family Reunion
and much more. In addition, he provides background information on all the events, putting them in a traditional Jewish context.
"The World of Jewish Entertaining" is the perfect cookbook for anyone looking for a fresh new perspective on entertaining.
