Jewish Cookery by Leah Leonard is the classic compendium of Jewish cuisine. First published in 1949, it is the authority to which cooks have turned for generations. Not only does it include recipes for hundreds of traditional Jewish dishes -- from universally familiar preparations to little-known regional specialties -- but it also gives instructions for maintaining a kosher kitchen, dozens of suggestions for Sabbath and holiday meals, complete guidelines for Passover dining, a basic nutritional and technical introduction to cooking, and much more.
All the Jewish favorites are here: challah (Sabbath egg bread), bagels, cheese blintzes, homemade cottage cheese, beet borsht, homemade farfel, kreplach (dumplings), kasha-varnitchkes (buckwheat groats with bow-tie noodles), mandlen (soup nuts), gefilte fish, baked herring, chopped liver, fried calf's liver...and more!
Here are the dishes your mother used to make, from the cookbook your grandmother brought over from the old country. Crown's Classic Cookbook series features a collection of the world's best-loved foreign cookbooks, specially adapted for use in American kitchens. Authentic and comprehensive, these reasonably priced books are a welcome addition to the culinary library of any cook.
