‘Out of snow, you can’t make cheesecake’ YIDDISH PROVERB

For most Jews, sweet things are a symbol of happiness and prosperity. Special cakes and pastries are served for every festival, as well as the Sabbath, circumcisions and other special occasions. Jews are renowned for their hospitality, and every Jewish household always has a supply of cakes, pastries or sweetmeats on hand for the unexpected visitor.

Meals usually end with a selection of fresh fruit or fruit compotes, especially in Sephardic households, while Ashkenazi Jews often serve lokshen (noodle) or fruit kugel (pudding), or strudel – especially for the Sabbath.

Although the Jewish repertoire of cakes and pastries is vast, for this chapter I have chosen a small selection of light cakes and pastries that can easily be made at home, and a variety of fruit desserts, creams and mousses.
