Jewish Soul Food
From Minsk to Marrakesh: More Than 100 Unforgettable Dishes Updated for Today's Kitchen
Hardcover ISBN: 0805243089
The author of our successful The Book of New Israeli Food returns with a cookbook devoted to the greatest hits of Jewish grandmothers from Minsk to Marrakesh: recipes that have traveled across continents and cultural borders, now brought to life for a new generation. Over thousands of years, Jews all over the world developed cuisines not only suited to their needs (kashrut, holidays, Shabbat) but also reflecting the influences of their neighbors and carrying memories from their past wanderings. These cuisines may now be on the verge of extinction, however, because practically none the Jewish communities in which these cuisines developed and thrived exist anymore. The only place all of these cuisines are still functional is Israel, where there are still a few first-generation cooks that know and love these dishes. Israel is, in a sense, a living laboratory of this beloved and endangered Jewish food; the 100 diversely flavored recipes here—from Jerusalem’s surprising, sweet kugel flavored with pepper to Bukharan’s hearty Ushapualau, a wondrous stew of beef, chickpeas, and carrots—were not chosen by an editor or a chef so much as by what Janna Gur calls “natural selection.
Cooking from the Heart
A Jewish Journey Through Food
Hardcover ISBN: 1742704360
Heartwarming heirloom recipes and stories from around the globe. Cooking From the Heart is a sumptuous celebration of cookery from around the world. This book reveals the stories and recipes of twenty-seven Jewish cooks and captures the importance and celebration of food in the Jewish home as a link to former homelands, their heritage, and a way to maintain the togetherness of family. We meet cooks from places as diverse as the Philippines, Morocco, Romania, and Ethiopia. They recount their sometimes tragic but always inspiring stories and detail their histories, the origins of recipes, and their experiences of food as they were growing up. From Georgia to Italy to Israel, Japan, and South Africa, the common thread is how food and flavors fill a Jewish home with love. Their unique journeys and reminiscences are accompanied by glorious color photographs and delicious recipes—from traditional dumplings, noodles, and soups to biscuits, pastries, and doughnuts. Some dishes are simple, made from the freshest ingredients, while others are complex and elaborate. There is the spicy fragrance of Indian curry contrasted with the indulgent Almond Custard Cake or Chocolate Ganache Cake and of course, legendary chicken soup, gefilte fish, and strudel. The variety of tastes and flavors is truly amazing.
