In this time of healthy cooking and healthy eating, crowd-pleasing and satisfying, full-flavor meals are often left behind. This cookbook contains no calorie counts, carbohydrate statistics, or other nutritional guidelines. You don’t have to be a Jewish grandmother to cook like one, nor to eat like one. But it’s often said that in a Jewish grandmother’s way of thinking, love and food are synonymous. If that’s the case, this is a book full of love.
Wholly dedicated to good old-fashioned taste, these family recipes--many from the author’s grandparents’ delicatessen--include everything from knishes to blintzes, with some borscht and kugel thrown in. There are also recipes from celebrities such as Richard Simmons and Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and crowd-pleasers like brisket, matzo ball soup, chicken wings, and much more. Whether you are a novice cook or an experienced gourmand, these recipes are easy to prepare and sure to please.
