I GIVE THIS BOOK AWAY ALL THE TIME, IT IS A GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING.
I HAVE BOUGHT ABOUT 25 COPIES FROM AMAZON, AND ALWAYS RUNNING OUT.
ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO I WROTE TO HER ABOUT A STORY MY MOTHER USED TO TELL ABOUT CHOLENT.
AMAZINGLY TODAY BUBE CALLED ME AND I SPOKE TO HER AND AVRIM FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE FOR ME. SHE IS THE REAL THING.
SHE IS GOING TO SEND ME AN AUTOGRAPHED PICTURE. SHE REALLY MADE MY DAY, OR SHOULD I SAY YEAR.
THANKS GERRY HALPERN
These recipes aren't complicated and they're delicious. I've tried her Roast Chicken - it's outstanding. I've made her brisket - and even though I didn't like brisket because it always seemed to be tough, tasteless, and stringy, hers is tender and full of flavor. There are some recipes in this book that are sure-fire go-to instructions for feeding a couple or a crowd. And as another reviewer said, the stories will bring tears to your eyes. They will also make you smile.
Get a copy. You won't regret it... and get another for someone you love: whether it's for your daughter or your granddaughter or your best friend or your sister or even your mother. It doesn't matter whether you're Jewish or Christian or Pagan: Bubbe's food transcends religion and cuts straight to the heart of living.
Get a copy. Especially if you're unsure of yourself in the kitchen. With Bubbe at your elbow, you'll do fine.
My teenage daughter and I can't wait to start cooking Bubbe's easy-to-follow recipes!
That is how Bubbe's book reads, with your relatives over your shoulder, smiling and encouraging.
The book is enhanced by family photos and reminiscences. There are no color photos of completed dishes, but the videos have been on my computer and my television, so I did not miss them. Sure, there is a brisket recipe with dried onion soup, but there is also one with onions and a chile sauce. Eggless egg salad with tofu, dressed up chopped herring with apples, onions, cider vinegar sugar and tomato paste!
I own great books by Joan Nathan, Arthur Schwartz, Marcy Goldman plus those local fundraiser books with dishes both sides of the family grew up with. This book exceeded my expectations, and is a worthy companion to the other books. I will edit my post when I get cooking in the Fall!
