Overview

Passover cuisine is no longer limited to the traditional dishes known to our parents and grandparents. In this classic, containing more than 500 clearly written recipes, Frances AvRutick shows us how to make every Passover dish a succulent delight. In nineteen chapters spiced with history, laced with lore, and garnished with cooking suggestions, you will find everything from traditional holiday preparations (try the Russian borscht and light-as-a-feather knaidlach) to modern-day originals (matzo-spinach pie, elegant stuffed drumsticks, matzo meal polenta--to name a few). The Complete Passover Cookbook will help you prepare the kind of Passover you never dreamed possible. New, revised 2008 edition.
