Jewish food is a blend of tradition and religion. Its history begins with the ancient Israelites and goes through different stages of the Jewish Diaspora to give life to what is known today as “fusion cuisine”. Check out our collection of Jewish cookbooks in PDF format.
For Jews, food is synonymous with family reunion and shared memories. The term “Shulchan Aruch”, a code of Jewish law, means “the table set”. With this, we can get an idea of how important cooking is to Judaism. Traditionally, it is a ritual to remember and create good memories.
Lamb meat, grapes, wheat, barley, legumes, wild plants, figs and olives are just some of the most representative ingredients of today’s Jewish cuisine dating back to biblical times. Thanks to a history marked by sacrifice and necessity, the Jewish people seek to promote generosity through food.
Jewish cooking is also an offering of love through abundance. If you ever eat at a Jewish family’s home, you’ll notice that the plates are overflowing with food. Why? Religious events in the Jewish tradition are based on sharing heaps of food with your relatives to remember the lack of the older generations.
