Author, Kenden Alfond has created a menu for every Jewish holiday that provides the peace of mind and confidence that comes from serving healthy foods while creating cherished memories. The Jewish Food Hero Cookbook is Alfond’s contribution to the Jewish community’s efforts to increase the amount healthy foods found on our tables. All the recipes in this cookbook use completely plant based food (no animal products) and everyday kosher parve ingredients. Cooking healthy holiday meals can be a form of creative expression, self-care, and love.
Beautifully photographed and filled with endearing stories of the author’s inspiration behind each holiday menu, The Jewish Food Hero Cookbook is not just about the food and the final presentation. It’s also about how you feel leading up to the holiday, and the ambiance one wants to create from day one of preparation. It’s about experiencing the holiday itself and creating beloved memories with your family.
Pairing both traditional and modern, healthy food, the goal of this book is to prove that together we can create a new and healthy food future for the Jewish people, one that is connected to the most beautiful of Jewish traditions while being grounded in the present.
