Interwoven throughout the text are Roden's charming asides--the history of certain foods, definitions (Kaimak, for instance, is the cream that rises to the top when buffalo milk is simmered), and ways of preparing everything from an eggplant to a quince. In addition, Roden tells you everything you've ever wanted to know about Jewish dietary laws, what the ancient Hebrews ate, and the various holidays and festivals on the Jewish calendar. Detailed sections on Jewish history are beautifully illustrated with archival photographs of families, towns, and, of course, food. The Book of Jewish Food is one that any serious cook--Jewish and non-Jewish alike--would gladly have (and use often) in the kitchen.
purchased this book mainly for the recipes, and didn't mind that the previous owner had indeed used it quite extensively. That's quite all right all the pages are intact. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer

An extraordinary book, much more than a cookbook. It presents a world of Jewish history but in such a way that it is relevant to the food, the recipes being provided. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Sherab K
