"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."
