Review by Debbie Mazo

JFood.com More than just chicken soup and matzo balls, contemporary Jewish cuisine mixes the old world flavors of yesterday with today's eclectic, gourmet taste sensations. For the best in Jewish, kosher, and healthy foods, check out JFood.com hosted by Jewishfamily.com.

Start off your holidays right by first browsing through the Holidays section, full of good, basic recipes and useful, entertainment suggestions. Recipes range from Rosh Hashanah specialties like Sweet and Sour Brisket to Hanukah favorites like Zucchini Latkes with Fresh Applesauce.

For insight into preparing Sephardic (European Jewry originating from Spain and Portugal) meals for Passover, you can also sample the Sephardic Meat and Potatoes Croquettes or the Sephardic Eggplant Pie.

Need a few hints on preparing tonight's dinner? You'll find an appetizing collection of everyday favorites in The Recipes section. Family Nights for Summer Nights serves up light and easy recipes while Scrumptious Winter Squash Recipes for Cool Evenings offers a few ways to cook up this savory, golden orange favorite.


Traditionally high in fat, today's Jewish cooking can be adapted for healthy alternatives. Get the low-down on healthy Jewish cooking in the Nutrition section featuring several articles on preserving the good life without sacrificing taste.

From health benefits of the Israeli Mediterranean diet to vegetarian eating styles, this tasty site proves that modern Jewish cuisine can include delights any Jewish mother would be proud of.
