Editorial Reviews

Review

"The adventurous cooks in the Rabinowitz family have come up with dishes in a wide range of flavors—I'm eager to try her son's Not Exactly Russian Piroshki, her grandma's cholent with red wine, her Passover banana sponge cake, and, of course, Mama Hinda's Challah. Judy's enthusiasm and sense of humor shine through."
—Faye Levy, 1,000 Jewish Recipes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Got Kugel? Got kugel with Toffee Walnuts? How about real, homemade Gelfite Fish—and Salmon en Papillote. Refreshing sweet-and-sour borscht, and Not-Your-Store-Bought Potato Blintzes. Cooking Jewish gathers recipes from five generations of a food-obsessed family into a celebratory saga of cousins and kasha, Passover feasts and crossover dishes, Aunt Irene's traditional matzoh balls and Judy's contemporary version with shiitake mushrooms. And don't even talk about the desserts. With its lively stories and eccentric characters, Cooking Jewish invites the reader not just into the kitchen, but into a whole vibrant world of family and friends.

Thank you for this treasure Judy.

If you like to read cookbooks like novels, then you will love reading this book, because it is much more than a cookbook.

Although I own over a thousand cookbooks and this one just arrived last week, it is already one of my all-time favorites ... truly phenomenal!

The recipes were all tried-and-true favorites contributed by family members all over the world, and preceded by descriptions of what makes each one so wonderful. Each and every recipe was tested and perfected by the author, who carefully noted every relevant detail to virtually ensure success.

The caramels are scrumptious (and well worth the price of the book). Every recipe seems to be that way ... incredibly delicious, and written to virtually ensure success. The author also offers simplified alternatives, such as roasting eggplant and peppers in the oven rather than on top of the stove for Romanian Eggplant.

One caveat: although Cooking Jewish holds a special appeal for Jews, the food is scrumptious for any palate. (I'm a Christian, and these are recipes anyone would love, and which I would proudly serve anyone.)

I can't even imagine not loving this cookbook ... It offers everything I consider important in a cookbook, and the recipes are well-tested, incredibly delicious, and clearly written. HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had my eye on this book for some time before it was released and for some reason it looked promising. Now, I've only had it for a week or so, but reading through it, it appears that I was right. I own many cookbooks (mostly kosher), and by briefly reviewing the recipes, I can pretty much tell whether I will use it or just file it on the shelf to collect dust. The way this book presents itself just makes you want to cook something right away, much like a fancy new chef's knife will make you want to chop something. I just made the Chicken Paprikash, and it was truly excellent, and not hard to make. The recipe instructions are thorough and well written with plenty of encouragement. I already bought the ingredients for the potato knishes, as this recipe also looks promising.

If you like to read cookbooks like novels, then you will love reading this book, because it is much more than a cookbook. If you are interested in genealogy, this book is also for you. It is the quintessential example of how to preserve your family stories, history, photos, and of course, recipes. In fact, a genealogist, such as myself, is in awe of the hours of work it took to put together this 704-page book with 532 recipes. Photos of Judy's family are sprinkled throughout the pages complete with captions. Judy's wonderful sense of humor creates a delightful flavor to the book.

Located throughout the book are orange boxes which contain precious treasures of family stories. I especially like the one by her son Stu, who made "Spaghetti a la Bradley" for his in-laws only to discover a whole jar of garlic doesn't equal one clove of garlic. Why do these things always happen when cooking for in-laws?

Judy was able to secure over 500 recipes from over 200 of her relatives! A family tree is included to keep the family members straight. I agree with Judy when she says that it took a planet, not a village, to write this cookbook.

Just when you need one, Judy supplies us with a cooking tip. I wouldn't attempt making challah without following her advice. The tips for making cookies are good reminders.

Some of the titles of the recipes could only be found in a family heirloom cookbook, such as "Chicken Stupid!" and "Tanta Esther Gittel's Husband's Second Wife Lena's Nut Cake."

Not all of the recipes in the book are traditional Jewish dishes. There's "Sally Kay's Tzatziki Dip" from her son's co-worker, "Taal's Chicken Biryani from Taal Indian Restaurant in Orange County, California, and "Chicken Stir-fry with Walnuts.

Readers will be hard-pressed to decide whether this book remains in the kitchen as an invaluable recipe source, or whether it should be kept at bedside, to read like a good novel. Maybe we all need 2 copies! Judy is a witty and gifted storyteller who lovingly introduces us to each of her relatives and extended family members, weaving fascinating stories and sharing memories and recipes along the way. Before you know it you're hooked, following each family member's journey through life. Jewish or not, we can all relate to Judy's quirky and delicious tales. The recipes--all 532 of 'em-- are detailed and well written, so no one should hesitate to start creating kitchen memories of their own. I am delighted with this book, and can think of no better gift for family and good friends.

Format: Paperback
Judy's book combines wit with a wealth of information of cooking in general and cooking Jewish specifically. Her anecdotes about her extended family along with pictures are laced through the book and make for interesting reading about a real family that we all wish had been ours. The sad thing is that these large extended families are rapidly disappearing in all but the most traditional of Jewish families. HOw lucky to have grown up with all those aunts, uncles and cousins living nearby. What a treat. And when you read this "cookbook" you will discover it is a treat as well.
