Format: Hardcover
When I opened The Classic Cuisine of the Italian Jews, I was enchanted to learn about a culture I had only heard of in passing. As I began to cook from the recipes, I began to learn about Italian Jewry from the flavors, textures and aromas of the foods. Machlin's descriptions of the Holidays in Pitigliano are beautiful and the Holiday foods that she teaches to reader to make only enhance the image of a vivid, unique and beautiful culture we can only seek to admire from afar in our time.
Classic dishes, such as roasted chicken for Shabbat and Challah have become weekly staples at our house. Mushroom risotto and onion foccacias are so simple and so good. While it is possible to admire Machlin's writing in private, her story and her cuisine must be shared to be fully appreciated.

A beautiful book, with stories of the writer's community, and the life of Jews in Italy before WWII. Her recipes are clearly written, and, having had and used the book for years, I can say that I never found a bad recipe.

Her vegetable dishes are the best, kosher tuscan cuisine. I learned a new and optimum way of preparing spinach from this book that I use frequently. And also this book has been a good source for new holiday food.

Someone recommended this book to me and I found it to be charming. Everyone
should have a copy and keep it for generations to come.
