I have been confused by Jewish dietary laws since I met my dear friend, Gail in 1981. Gail kept a kosher household and did her best to answer my questions before I left Texas.

I quite enjoyed this book, even though it was quite too much in depth for my taste. I enjoyed the amount of information that this book had, and I learned a lot.

Very informative. The authoress breaks this down to the hows, whys, history, commentary, where-froms, and recipes. My copy was damaged by water and I still kept it -- musty mold smell and all.
