If its any help here are the Jewish ones

Chanukah - Potato latkes (pancakes) and doughnuts - December

Tu B'Shevat - New Year for Trees- different fruits, fruit salad with 15 different types of fruit - February

Purim - Hamentaschen - triangular poppy seed filled pastry - March

Passover - matzos(water biscuits), charoses (cinammon, wine, grated apple and nuts), - April

Pentecost - cheese cake, cheese pancakes - May

New Year - apple dipped in honey, unusual fruits, honey cake, tzimmes - a sweet carrot dish - September

Tabernacles - stuffed cabbage - September

Sabbath - braided rich white bread decorated with poppy seeds, called challohs, wine,chicken, chicken soupwith knaidlach (matzoh balls) or lockshen Friday night, Saturday lunch a meaty bean stew called chulent - each week

Any Jewish cookery book would have all this and more with explanations.

Hope this helps,
