Just in time for the holidays...I'd never heard of the Jewish Princess ...well, that's not true, I have two of my own and I'm sure my parents referred to me and my sister often as Jewish Princesses. I just never heard of this particular Jewish Princess phenomenon. Georgie Tarn and Tracey Fine are the force behind this sensation over in the UK. They write for the Jewish Chronicle, UK, appear with celebrity chefs on TV and have their own website.
Feasts & Festivals is their second kosher cookbook and is filled with delicious recipes for all the holidays and a million princess parties as well. The recipes are simple to follow and ...can I just say.,..
the Muesli Breakfast Cookies filled with dates and figs were a huge hit at my Honey's office.
and the Honey Cookies, soft and tender were delicious. I added some lavender buds to some of mine...a Jewish Princess is expected to embellish, after all.
The JP writing style is fun, at times irreverent, but never too irreverent...and takes us through the various traditional feasts from holidays to weddings, bar & bat mitzvahs and more...what they mean and how to celebrate them - Jewish Princess style, of course.
And I can't resist sharing...
"A Jewish Prince asks a Jewish Princess what her favorite fruit is,
"Well", she says, "I've always been partial to pairs...of earrings, shoes, handbags..."
I still haven't decided on my Rosh Hashanah menu, could it be the Spanish Chicken, Champagne Salmon, Chicken Marmelade...lots of tasty treats that have me drooling just reading about them.
This is a particularly great book for the new Jewish Bride...still a princess, don't worry.
