Chrismukkah Comes Early This Year!
The creators of chrismukkah.com have published a holiday cookbook with 55 recipes combining Christmas and Hanukkah, resulting in a wacky cookbook that is as fun to look through as it is functional.
Chrismukkah: The Merry Mish-Mash Holiday Cookbook (Chrismukkah.com; $15) contains playful recipes combining the common foods in Jewish cooking with Christmas favorites, resulting in inventive recipes such as Bah Humburgers and Challah Sticky Bun Wreath.
Each recipe is accompanied by colorful images, incorporating the different holiday elements, as well as lighthearted asides; the “Green Eggs and Pastrami caption reads, “I do not like Green Eggs and Ham! For I keep Kosher, Sam I Am!”. And if you’re worried you won’t know what to drink with your “Good Cheer with A Schmear”, there is a Happy Hour section with goodies such as Yule Plotz and Clarence’s Merrychewitz Mulled Wine.
A clever way to incorporate the holidays for interfaith families, it is also a playful poke at the way both holidays have come together in American culture. Available at Chrismukkah.com.
