“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)

The book is well researched, full of interesting stories and beautifully laid out. The resource section for some of the more difficult to find ingredients is helpful.
It is so fitting that a mother/daughter team wrote this together. Bringing family and history together with food. Yum.
The recipes are clearly written and delicious! I highly recommend this cookbook.
