Many of the recipes listed were
basically taken from cookbooks, magazines, etc. (see our
Credit Page). Some are old 'grandmother' recipes
given us by friends. Others are old and new family recipes that were
passed down to one or another of us at the
Mission and finally there are the recipes that we made up ourselves.
When we began to do our own cooking
as part of the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles, we had no idea that
we would one day place the recipes we used on a web site. Therefore,
we were not careful to note the source of the recipes. If anyone can
identify an original source of any of the recipes not listed in the credit
page, we would appreciate your e-mailing me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then update
that information to this web site.
It was because there were so many
requests to make these recipes available that we decided to place them on a
web site. Most of those listed on our credits page have
been changed to meet our dietary needs for the Feasts. For example, we
do not use any hot seasonings, garlic or onions* so these ingredients have
been removed from all recipes. Also you will notice the recipes in the
later years are more low-fat (use of cheeses, oils, etc. reduced).
We enjoy both dinner and supper.
We often have Satsang with Maitreya around 8 PM. So during the
Feast, we serve our main meal (Dinner) around midday and then, if we do not
fast before Satsang, we have a light snack.
To find a recipe you can choose from
the categories below (Breakfast, etc), and click on the category you are
interested in. All the recipes we have for that category are listed at
your new arrival page. When you find a recipe in which you are
interested, click that recipe and you will enter another page where all the
recipes for that year will be found. You will then be taken directly
to the recipe you chose; however, all the other recipes for that year will
also be available if you decide to browse.
If you find any problems or errors
on this site, we would love to learn about them so that we can make
corrections. Again, please e-mail: email@example.com
