Editorial Reviews

Review

June Hersh offers us a rare gift in this cookbook. It is a testament to the Jewish human
condition and its ability to transcend the past and move forward without forgetting. The
survivors’ stories of deep love and great loss moved me. The understanding that for
many, these recipes are all that remains of large, close, precious families takes my breath
away. The juxtaposition of their brave stories with recipes only makes what they endured
even more unimaginable. May the food of their memories nourish our spirits.
Suzie Fishbein, author of the Kosher by Design series of cookbooks
(Suzie Fishbein)

All the recipes in this book are wonderful!
- Mayor Edward I. Koch 

This patiently gathered, touching and important archive of heirloom recipes with their
companion stories is a heartwarming must-have gem, 
- Gale Gand, nationally acclaimed pastry chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and television personality

Book Description

Recipes Remembered gives voice to the remarkable stories and cherished recipes of the Holocaust community.  The first professionally written cookbook of its kind is a moving compilation of food memories, stories about food and families, and recipes from Holocaust survivors from Poland, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, and Greece.

More About the Author

I write cookbooks with a charitable flavor. My first, Recipes Remembered: a Celebration of Survival is a compilation of remarkable stories and authentic recipes that I gathered through interviews with over 80 Holocaust survivors. All proceeds from the sale of the book go to benefit the Museum of Jewish Heritage- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.
My second book, The Kosher Carnivore (St. Martin's Press, fall 2011) is the ultimate meat & poultry cookbook. While strictly kosher and containing no dairy, the book is a great resource for both kosher and non kosher cooks. I am currently at work on a third book tentatively titled Simple, Simpler, Simplest.

I began my cookbook writing endeavor 3 years ago and have found it a perfect way to express my love for writing with my passion for cooking. I hope you will take my advice and eat my words please!

I currently live in New York City with my husband of almost 35 years.I am the proud mother of two accomplished daughters. I am a graduate of The University of Pennsylvania where I received a degree in elementary education and a minor in Journalism. I also hold a Master's degree in Gifted and Talented education.

This was a gift for my daughter for her bat mitzvah. The book came yesterday and I eagerly opened it to write a personal note inside. I was overwhelmed with the photos, stories and recipes shared. This is so much more than a cook book, this is a legacy book every home should treasure.

I'm not a chef or even a cook - but I found the title fascinating and it made me want to learn more. I never would have guessed I would be taken so much by a cookbook! I read each and every story of survival by the remarkable people the author interviewed and couldn't put the book down! It is a tribute to the spirit of the survivors and I will recommend the book to everyone I know, cooks or not, to be one that they will keep out on their coffee tables to have others pick up and read. I hope the author does more!!

Just started reading this book and I love it. The stories are very touching and well written about different people's experiences during the Holocaust and how they survived to tell about it. The recipes are for dishes that many were made by most Jewish grandmothers and mothers and if you unfortunately did not get some of their recipes they are here in this book. I unfortunately never got my grandmother's Potato Kugel recipe and am excited to try the one in this book. I want to thank the author for writing such a wonderful book. I highly recommend purchasing this book and keeping it out on your cocktail table for people to read when they visit.

When the Jewish people left their original homeland and moved to new locations all over the world, they incorporated new spices, new vegetables and new ways of preparing dishes. However, whatever the food tneirparents served when they were young chidden left aan indelible mark, a sense memory that many held onto as they faced harsh times and the uncertainty of survival.hooray for June Hersh's attempt to reach out to people to help them to reflectnon those early food memories. This bok is a unique contribution to understanding a people and their culture.

I bought this book after reading the author's story in Guideposts. I sent it to my good friend who is an Orthodox Jew. She LOVES it. The recipes are kosher and the stories are uplifting.

Haven't cooked from it yet (but I will!) but it is worth the price just for the life accounts that it includes.
