Food and cooking is at the heart of Jewish life. During their 2000 years of exile, Jews migrated across the world taking their culinary heritage and traditions with them. Acclaimed food writer Paola Gavin takes the reader on a culinary journey through more than twenty countries from Morocco to India uncovering a myriad traditional vegetarian dishes that play such an important part in Jewish cooking. Through 150 recipes Paola leads us from North Africa to Italy, Lithuania, Turkey, Georgia and beyond, examining the subtle differences and genesis of the dishes of these regions. With lavish, colourful food photography and a meticulously researched narrative, Hazana is a classic in cookbook writing.
