The photos and explanations given in this book are superb. The stories and history Ms. Dweck shares of her family and the Syrian Jews make this extraordinary book even more remarkable. I pick this book up over and over again for both the history, customs and cultural information as well as for new recipe ideas.
I also own Claudia Roden's 'The Book of Jewish Food' and noted that both Ms. Dweck and Ms. Roden seem to share the same family name (Phonetically). Ms. Roden's family originates also from Aleppo and the family name is 'Douek'. Although spelled differently, the pronunciation is the same. Perhaps these two great ladies of culinary writing and expertise are related?
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in expanding their cooking experience and library.
