Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, National & regional cuisine

A compendium of Jewish recipes, both modern and classic, from the flagship location of the national organization that celebrates community and embraces diversity.

Across the continent, JCCs are cultural epicentres of modern Jewish life. The buildings are hives of activity; at any given moment, under one roof, hundreds of people of all ages, genders, religions, interests, and opinion, gather to engage in a myriad of activities-- everything from meditation to music lessons, yoga to Yiddish studies. And what holds it all together? In a word: food.

While sitting down to enjoy a meal together is undeniably bonding, coming together to prepare it is even more so. Now, The JCC in Manhattan, alongside its various national counterparts, shares classic recipes such as Weekday Challah, Latkes Four Ways, and Kreplach soup, plus an inspiring selection of contemporary dishes with a farm-to-table emphasis and international flavours: Fig and Fennel Bread, Syrian Lamb Burgers, Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Syrup, and much more. A complete chart groups recipes by dietary restriction (meat, pareve, dairy), and plenty of holiday menus are included as well.

With anecdotal contributions from JCCs all around the country, this cookbook highlights the organization's vibrant, eclectic community-- and celebrates all of its many flavours.
