Passover Cookbooks

The JTS Library has a wonderful collection of cookbooks devoted to kosher for Passover recipes. An easy way to get an overview is to do a search by subject in the Aleph online catalog beginning with the words "Passover cookery." One can also peruse the shelves under the classification number "TX739" to see the books and decide which to borrow as all Passover cookbooks are circulating copies. The collection includes American Jewish classics such as The Manischewitz Passover Cookbook and The New York Times Passover Cookbook and, from Israel, The Jerusalem Post Taste of Passover Cookbook and Kasher le-Fesah/Passover Gourmet. Several are for those that follow special diets - The Vegetarian Pesach Cookbook and No Cholesterol Passover Recipes. The winner for the most intriguing title of all is The When You Live in Hawaii, You Get Very Creative During Passover Cookbook.

And for those who would like even more recipes, note that almost all kosher cookbooks have sections devoted to kosher for Passover recipes. General kosher cookbooks can be accessed in Aleph by the subject "Jewish cookery"; they are shelved under the classification number, TX724.
