The practice of keeping kosher (by following kashrut, or traditional Jewish dietary law) has an historical and continuing influence upon Jewish food.
On a practical level, keeping kosher affects not only food ingredients and combinations but also preparation and storage.
The Jewish cookbooks in the Library's collection reflect a range of attitudes towards traditional Jewish dietary laws on keeping kosher. From the strictly observant to the staunchly rebellious, their recipes show the spectrum of observances among Jewish individuals and communities.
