Book Description

Aug. 28 2006
When the Jews fled Iraq for Israel, they could not take their material possessions, but they did take their culture--and their rich cuisine. With Mongolian, Turkish, and Indian influences, Jewish-Iraqi cuisine is a special blend--and has never before been documented. Rivka Goldman takes the reader through her memories of an ancient land and culture by means of the culinary heritage passed on to her by her mother. This elegant cookbook memoir describes the ways in which the unique sociopolitical history of the Jewish-Iraqi has impacted their foods and the ways in which they are eaten, supplying over 100 healthful family recipes. Refreshing salads, hearty stuffed vegetable and meat dishes, and wholesome dumpling, fish and rice dishes all accompany tales of friendship, loyalty, persecution, escape, exile, and, of course, celebration.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last Jan. 19 2008
By NYC reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's great to finally see a book that documents Jewish Iraqi cuisine. (The only other one I have come across was "The best of Baghdad cooking, with treats from Teheran" by Daisy Iny but that is no longer in print...)

I made a couple of the recipes in this book. They were easy to follow and came out wonderfully. My ancestry is from Bagdad and the spices used there are a little different from those used in this book. But, I enjoy this book very much. The recognition of our foods and history is much appreciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an unbelievable cookbook! Sept. 20 2006
By Katherine Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is phenomenal. Rivka Goldman's amazing stories combined with her knowledge of middle eastern cuisine is priceless. The food is SO delicious, and so healthy! The stories told throughout this book are beautiful and inspiring. I am so glad my friend recommended this book to me -- it is worth its weight in gold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grandmother's kitchen Jan. 2 2010
By Green Eagle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book brought to life my grandmother's kitchen that I thought may have been lost with time. The nostalgia and palate has since loved this book. Only one complaint is that it is too wet. In general, you have to decrease the amount of water and wet foods (i.e. tomatoes) that the recipes call for, and once you do, they are perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars authentic Sept. 30 2008
By D&D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My wonderful "adopted" aunty, an 80-year-old Iraqi Jewish lady from Baghdad, was delighted to receive this book as a gift. She has been inspired to try out some of the recipes of dishes she has missed eating since her sister, a fabulous cook, passed away.
