There could be no more festive way to introduce Jewish children to their Jewish heritage than through the food associated with the holidays. And no better person to do it than Joan Nathan, whose great enthusiasm and knowledge have gained her a national reputation as the maven of the Jewish kitchen.
Here are seventy child-centered recipes and cooking activities from around the world in which the entire family can participate. Covering the ten major holidays, each of the activities has a different focus--such as Eastern Europe, Biblical Israel, contemporary America--and together they present a vast array of foods, flavors, and ideas. The recipes are old and new, traditional and novel--everything from hamantashen to pretzel bagels, chicken soup with matzah balls to matzah pizza, cheese blintzes to vegetarian chopped liver, hallah to halvah, fruit kugel to Persian pomegranate punch.
First published in paperback in l988, The Children's Jewish Holiday Kitchen has now been redesigned and contains 20 additional delicious recipes and 30 delightful new drawings.

The Children's Jewish Holiday Kitchen
Since the first edition of this book was published in 1987, I have watched my children grow. My eldest daughter, Daniela, is off to college next year, while Merissa just celebrated her Bat Mitzvah. Their brother, David, an infant in 1987, is now an aspiring young actor. Amidst the ever-changing kaleidoscope of their lives at home and at school, the table has been a constant in binding us together as a family.
We continue to try to make time each evening for a meal together, a refreshing pause when we can catch up with each of our children, and they with us! And how relaxing it is to talk while snipping beans or shelling peas. This book is a testimony to that time together. It includes twenty new recipes which we as a family use and have developed. Also over the years, as we have traveled, we have learned many things and acquired new tastes. Many of these are shared in this new edition, like snacking on pomegranates and using prepared puff pastry to make knishes.
As our children have grown they have become less interested in meat, and more in vegetarian meals with low fat content. And they have definite ideas of what they like. As David told me when I was preparing this new edition of the book, "Mom, kids like plain lasagna, no lumps in their food. They like smooth tomato sauce!" I could have added for him that they also like every dessert with chocolate chips.
Through the years as I travel the country speaking about Jewish food, I have been gratified to discover how many children have learned to cook from these recipes. Now my daughters and their friends can use this book on their own. Luckily for me, David still needs my help!
