Here is an old school soft cover cookbook titled... The Jewish Holiday Kitchen by Joan Nathan. This recipe book is in good used condition with just a few creases to the covers from reading and re-shelving. INSIDE the pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing.
Nathan, coauthor with Judy Stacey Goldman of The Flavor of Jerusalem (1975), ransacks the culinary history and geography of Judaism to arrive at some 150 recipes for holiday, Sabbath, and ceremonial fare. In some cases the association of food and occasion is traditional (most of the Seder offerings); in others the recipes are shunted into more or less arbitrary slots in order to fill out chapters--e.g., gingerbread cookies to occupy the kiddies at Chanukah. Versions of Ashkenazic, Sephardic, and assorted Middle Eastern classics range from painstakingly authentic to frankly bastardized (sweet-potato tsimmes with canned pineapple and marshmallows).
REMEMBER----books are mailed via media rate mail to give you the best deal on shipping. The down side is that media rate mail can take up to three weeks for delivery.
