Review

June Hersh offers us a rare gift in this cookbook. It is a testament to the Jewish human
condition and its ability to transcend the past and move forward without forgetting. The
survivors’ stories of deep love and great loss moved me. The understanding that for
many, these recipes are all that remains of large, close, precious families takes my breath
away. The juxtaposition of their brave stories with recipes only makes what they endured
even more unimaginable. May the food of their memories nourish our spirits.
Suzie Fishbein, author of the Kosher by Design series of cookbooks
(Suzie Fishbein)

All the recipes in this book are wonderful!
- Mayor Edward I. Koch 

This patiently gathered, touching and important archive of heirloom recipes with their
companion stories is a heartwarming must-have gem, 
- Gale Gand, nationally acclaimed pastry chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and television personality

About the Author

June Feiss Hersh graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Journalism. She pursued both paths by becoming a teacher at The Solomon Schechter Day School while earning her Master’s degree in Gifted and Talented Education as well as writing freelance articles for local publications and educational magazines. After working in her family’s lighting business for close to two decades, June found a new passion. She combined her talent for cooking with her dedicated support of the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust by writing Recipes Remembered. She recently completed her second book, The Kosher Carnivore (St. Martin’s Press, 2011) and is at work on her third book Simple, Simpler, Simplest.

This was a gift for my daughter for her bat mitzvah. The book came yesterday and I eagerly opened it to write a personal note inside. I was overwhelmed with the photos, stories and recipes shared. This is so much more than a cook book, this is a legacy book every home should treasure.

I'm not a chef or even a cook - but I found the title fascinating and it made me want to learn more. I never would have guessed I would be taken so much by a cookbook! I read each and every story of survival by the remarkable people the author interviewed and couldn't put the book down! It is a tribute to the spirit of the survivors and I will recommend the book to everyone I know, cooks or not, to be one that they will keep out on their coffee tables to have others pick up and read. I hope the author does more!!

Just started reading this book and I love it. The stories are very touching and well written about different people's experiences during the Holocaust and how they survived to tell about it. The recipes are for dishes that many were made by most Jewish grandmothers and mothers and if you unfortunately did not get some of their recipes they are here in this book. I unfortunately never got my grandmother's Potato Kugel recipe and am excited to try the one in this book. I want to thank the author for writing such a wonderful book. I highly recommend purchasing this book and keeping it out on your cocktail table for people to read when they visit.

When the Jewish people left their original homeland and moved to new locations all over the world, they incorporated new spices, new vegetables and new ways of preparing dishes. However, whatever the food tneirparents served when they were young chidden left aan indelible mark, a sense memory that many held onto as they faced harsh times and the uncertainty of survival.hooray for June Hersh's attempt to reach out to people to help them to reflectnon those early food memories. This bok is a unique contribution to understanding a people and their culture.

a cookbook that reads well. Great back stories with each recipe. My wife has had it for a couple of weeks and has spent quite a bit of time reading without ever moving toward the kitchen. A fine book for cooks and non-cooks alike.

Lots of nice recipes in this book. I am also intrigued by the stories of survival during the Holocaust. Very personal accounts add to these handed-down recipes that will keep the memory of loved ones alive forever.

Not only are the recipes excellent, but the stories accompanying each recipe brings the memories of the holocaust survivors to life.

I bought this book expecting it to be the recipes of holocaust survivors that were made by them prior to the war and then passed down through the family (since most of them have passed on). I was surprised to find that the book is really an account of how the contributors survived the war and in some cases their stories are shared through their descendants. Each family then shares a recipe or two that was passed from the survivor through that family. I was hooked on reading the stories of survival; the places and events that we have read about or seen in documentaries and movies are true and told from a deeply human perspective. The recipes themselves are not the stars of this book and are all very similar and typical of each country/region. Overall, I am glad that I purchased this book and I have already loaned it to several friends.
