The cook and the rabbi Recipes and stories to celebrate the Jewish holidays

Susan Simon, 1945-

Book - 2023

"A delicious exploration of the Jewish holidays, with illuminating conversations and meals shared by friends: a rabbi and a cook. For many of the Jewish Diaspora, experiencing the holidays might mean lighting a menorah for Chanukah, or hosting a Passover seder. But, if celebrated with an understanding of the storied customs behind the festivities, these occasions can be so much more than candles and matza. Following the lunisolar calendar, James Beard Award-winning author Susan Simon and Rabbi Zoe B Zak devote chapters to fourteen unique holidays. From Selichot to Rosh HaShanah, Purim to Pesach, every holiday has history, interpretation, and foods, with seasonal kosher recipes that reimagine traditional dishes from the entire Diaspora ...population with flair. More than a cookbook, The Cook and the Rabbi is a testament to the resilient versatility of the Jewish people and their traditions. With Zoe's thoughtful insights and Susan's appealing recipes, there's no end to the ways you might celebrate the holidays and make your personal relationship with them uplifting, inspiring, and deeply fulfilling. Chag Sameach!" --
