I LOVE how faith and food meet during the holidays. I grew up Catholic, but some of my closest friends have been Jewish, and their stories of why foods were celebrated throughout the year always moved me. A close friend and roommate gave me this book as a gift after I'd made challah and latkes for our holiday party. I love how it describes recipes by their place in the bible as well as in modern day life. I cook from it regularly, and reach for it whenever I want to honor the faith of those I love.
