I am looking for cookbooks that explore the recipes for the foods associated with different holidays. I have just finished my Channukah selection, the חובות הלביבות and am going to start the text with instructions how to make food for Pesach, מצות עשה (not the version specific to grandmothers). I am not linking to the vegetarian cookbook as that food is not associated with a holiday. Or happiness. Or anything good.

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

    You say it's not the version specific to grandmothers, but there's three volumes of the grandmothers' cookbook: בבא קמא, בבא מציעא, ובבא בתרא – DonielF Feb 26 at 23:52

    @DonielF this is true, but I'm not looking for any that are Zman Grandma – rosends Feb 27 at 0:05

    these are great! I can add them to my confectionery work for the feast of Tabernacles, Noy Sucker, and the large collection imgur.com/a/uPS7FiW – rosends Feb 27 at 11:32
  • -slow clap- Well done. – DonielF Feb 27 at 16:20
  • @DonielF Glad you enjoyed – Joel K Feb 27 at 17:09

I recommend Taaruvos, a Spanish cookbook by J. Karo. Inside you can except to find all sorts of fascinating recipes - for both the beginner and the advanced.

Although it was not written for this purpose, it is in fact the perfect purim cookbook!

I highly recommend the שולחן ערוך's English version called "The Prepared Table". It is a wonderful book filled with quick recipes as well as ideas for how to set your table for various occasions - holidays, vorts, LeChaim's, shvigger's (mother-in-law) visits, and more. I will warn you that it comes in five hefty volumes, so you better be prepared to do a lot of learning and cooking.

There is an abbreviation version called "The Tour of the Prepared Table", which you may want to browse first.

    I hear that fifth volume is awfully obscure. – DonielF Feb 27 at 16:21
  • @DonielF Go figure! I unintentionally alluded to something in my answer! Thanks for reminding me. It makes my answer even better, now! – DanF Feb 27 at 16:24
