Editorial Reviews


“It is hard to overstate the importance of a book like The German-Jewish Cookbook. . . . It captures a lost moment in time, elevating a rich history and culture that, within a generation, will have almost no one left who experienced it.”—Tablet

“What a feast! Rich in cultural history and vibrant with personal stories, The German-Jewish Cookbook offers up recipes both homespun and elegant, from simple Potato Puffs to show-stopping Chestnut Crème. . . . This beautiful book is a moving testament to food and family and the enduring bonds of taste.”—Darra Goldstein, award-winning cookbook author and world-renowned food scholar

“With a preservationist zeal and a modern day appetite, Sonya and Gaby pay a long-overdue tribute to the fascinating German-Jewish culinary traditions. Through charming stories and mouthwatering recipes they bring that almost-vanished gastronomic culture to life—and the results are delectable.”—Anya von Bremzen, author of Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking: A Memoir of Food and Longing

“It would have been straightforward enough to write a collection of recipes extolling the virtues of the German-Jewish food we all love, but this mother-daughter team make it a book to not only cook from but to sit down and read. . . .We’re keen on this fabulous insight to a cuisine we think we know (but don’t know well enough).”—Southern Jewish Living

“The German-Jewish Cookbook contains not only the recipes of the vanished German-Jewish community but the cultural history and historical context behind them.”—Jewish Week

“The flavors preserved in The German-Jewish Cookbook are a sensory bridge to the past. The everyday pleasures of sour cherry soup, boiled beef with fresh horseradish, and potato dumplings with gravy entice us to claim bygone food traditions as our own.” —Brandeis Magazine


“An absolute joy to read. Written by a mother and daughter team, The German-Jewish Cookbook wonderfully chronicles their experiences hunting down family recipes and gathering the many enthralling stories of the foods with which they grew up. . . . A book that will make a contribution in culinary iconography and that for me, personally, opened up a new glimpse into my own German-Jewish past.” (Joan Nathan, author of King Solomon’s Table: A Culinary Exploration of Jewish Cooking from around the World)

“A long-anticipated examination of a cuisine steeped in the rich, tragic history of a people for whom the flavor of home is a direct connection to the past. It is a deeply personal, ethno-culinary marvel, and as extraordinary to cook from as it is to read.” (Elissa Altman, author of Treyf and Poor Man’s Feast)

“A full and beautiful portrait of German-Jewish cuisine, from its roots in Germany to its flourishing in New York City. The recipes and stories from mother and daughter ooze with love. This is a very special cookbook and such a valuable slice of history.” (Jeffrey Yoskowitz, coauthor of The Gefilte Manifesto: New Recipes for Old World Jewish Foods)

“Spending time with Sonya and Gabrielle Gropman is like dropping in on old friends for an afternoon kaffeeklatsch. Welcoming hosts, they are also eloquent storytellers who know how to cook. Their book is a rich and enticing blend of recipes, history, and family memoir that documents a vanishing cuisine, while expanding our grasp of what Jewish cooking can be.” (Jane Ziegelman, author of 97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement)

“More than a cookbook . . . a hybrid of memoir, family and cultural history, and ethnography. So many recipes, traditions, and details of daily German-Jewish life were lost in the abyss of its twentieth-century history, along with entire communities. The German-Jewish Cookbook, written for Jews and non-Jews alike, gives these wonderful recipes for all occasions new life and provides fascinating reading as well.” (Helen Epstein, author of Children of the Holocaust and Where She Came From: A Daughter’s Search for Her Mother’s History)
