The World of Jewish Entertaining is author and chef Rabbi Gil Marks's companion book to The World of Jewish Cooking. He explains that from the time Abraham and Sarah entertained passing strangers in their simple tent, hospitality has been a significant aspect of Jewish life. For generations, Jewish parents have taught their children how to create a traditional home, passing down many lifetimes of accumulated wisdom along with their family recipes. But as the world changes, Jewish entertaining changes too. Marks pitches his book at modern Jews who want to add exciting new dishes to their traditional menus. He also offers a practical guide to serving elegant meals, whether for a large crowd or an intimate gathering. Among the suggested meals are traditional Rosh Hashanah dinners, Sukkah parties, Ashkenazic and Sephardic Seders, and a Sabbath Meze. Recipes include Hamantaschen--small pastries filled with poppy seeds-- Shawarmas and Kefta Kebabs.About the Author:
