The title of the month’s edition of kcc is not a reference to the environment nor to sustainable development but was suggested to me by the fact that most of the recipes included here are meatless. In addition, with Tu Bishvat only two weeks away, it seemed fitting to present numerous recipes and posts which might give you ideas to celebrate this holiday. This is my first kcc so I hope you will be tolerant of my probable mistakes and omissions.
