The San Diego Jewish Food Festival Cookbook and CD

Food has always played an important role in Jewish culture and in the celebration of Jewish holidays. We are pleased to offer you our very first cookbook that includes recipes of the original San Diego Jewish Food Festival. Included are recipes from our own Temple Adat Shalom members as well. Food has a way of bringing generations together. From young to old, recipes are a way of showcasing Jewish and family traditions. We get a glimpse inside each family and learn how they might celebrate their own special occasions with food.

Here’s a sneak peek at one of our included recipes. It is from Gloria Sheinbein, our “Founder” of the first Jewish Food Festival, that took place in Oklahoma City.
