I would also like to recommend "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen: A Culinary Journey through Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan," by Sonia Uvezian. This definitive volume offers superb recipes and fascinating text, including information on the region's minorities (particularly Jews and Armenians) that is not found in previous cookbooks.
But don't overlook the cooking. Here you will find recipes for the foods you haven't had since you sat on a phonebook at your grandparents' Seder table. Then after you've had the gefilte fish and cholent your Bubbie made, you can try the equally authentic, traditional recipe of another region. (Did you know there's a difference between Yankee and Southern matzah balls? The former are plain and fluffy, the latter dense and spicy). And then sample Jewish versions of traditional American fare, like Texas chili. And don't overlook the Sephardic dishes and the recipes of our Syrian brethren.
All in all, Jewish Cooking in America is a valuable addition to the kitchen and the library.
