Chef Nathan tams

"New Jewish
Cuisine"

to the In liolniunet for
Passovers

C

hef Jeffrey Nathan, host of the only kosher
cooking show on television, has brought his
unique and entertaining brand of cooking
to the Internet this Passover season.
Thanks to a new partnership between Jewish
Television Network (JTN) and Jewish.com , episodes
of Nathan's program New Jewish Cuisine are now avail-
able in streaming video.
Visitors to Jewish.com will now have an opportuni-
ty to see Chef Nathan in action by downloading
Passover-themed episodes. On his Passover seder show,
you can view Chef Nathan prepare a rack of veal, wild
mushroom matzah farfel stuffing, a smoked trout salad
and more. In another Passover program, he whips up
interesting, easy-to-prepare dishes such as matzah
seviche and baked matzah frittata.
"From a food standpoint, Passover is one of the
most difficult times of the year for Jewish families,"
said Nathan. "My goal is to dispel the myth that there
are no good Passover recipes. I want to help families
get past the leftover seder chicken and gefilte fish and

use those same ingredients to prepare
some new and, hopefully, more
palatable and eye-catching Passover
dishes."
Among the other free video pro-
grams that can be downloaded on
Jewish.com are Aleph ... Bet ... Blastoff
and Homes ty les. Aleph ... Bet ... Blastoff is
an innovative children's series that
brings Judaism to life with lovable puppet characters,
original songs, humor and celebrity guest stars. Each
episode is built around a holiday theme.
Homestyles is a warm and inviting contemporary
guide to celebrating Judaism in the home with family
and friends. Shows include Passover, weddings, gar-
dening, crafts and kids' birthday ideas.
All video clips can be viewed on www.Jewish.com
using Windows Media Player.
