but i think that is kind of inaccurate. i really like this book & plan to keep it. a lot of these recipes are ethnic crossovers, it's true, but if traditional (esp eastern-euro-cum-to-america traditional) types are what you are looking for, theyre in here too. i - maybe i am alone in this but i doubt it - for 1, have never seen a vegetarian kishke recipe before. vegan/pareve no less. & youve got yr latkes, yr borscht (beet), 3 kinds of knishes, mock chopped liver, eggless challah..... right beside yr colcannon & tamale pie. here in california we call that making the whole family happy.
i guess there is a more israeli/sephardic bent/cant (whatever) to these recipes than might be initially expected - & i think that makes this book more unusual & more interesting rather than less. recipes like sharon fruit gratin (aka fuyus), galia melon halves w/ port, uppuma, or tofu in walnut pomegranate sauce are unlikely to be found elsewhere. & yes, while the authors do cull some recipes from other book sources, they are primarily from books that would be as easy to find in the states...
& hey, some of us 3d (or 4th or 5th.....) generation freethinkers have never even **seen** these blessings & that, particularly combined w/ the rad recipes, is pretty cool too.
