Traditional Jewish Comfort Food Recipes to Try This Winter

When it comes to comfort food, Jewish cuisine has got it down. Jewish food is rooted in stories and symbolism that have been passed down from generation to generation. There are two main types of Jewish foods: Sephardic and Ashkenazi. Spices like cumin, coriander, cinnamon and mint are commonly used in Sephardic cooking and make meals vibrant and aromatic. Ashkenazi cooking uses minimal seasoning and spices, with onions, potatoes and braised meats making up many meals. Whether you are sick in bed, deciding what to eat on a cold night or celebrating one of the many Jewish holidays, these comforting Jewish recipes will help you nail the perfect meal.
