I picked this up on a whim, looking for a Jewish cookbook. I paid $10 for a used copy, and what a treasure it turned out to be! I am undecided how I feel about the writing style (supposed to be like an old Jewish grandma) since it *does* sound like my grandma (or her friends) but somehow doesn't sit right. Regardless, I loved the stories and jokes that went along with each section, and put the recipes into context. The recipes themselves are clear and usually include serving size and suggestions ...more

It's a cookbook and a humorous memoir. Written in 1956, her first page begins, "If the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, then knishes will get there faster...and stay longer." She brings the state of the modern Jewish household ala 1950's to life with her commentary about leisure, appliances, cooking till it looks right, and tastes right too! Author Sara Kasdan has written a truly user-friendly Jewish cookbook and I am So happy it's in my wee home library for keeps.

I don't usually read cookbooks-they're usually my grown up version of picture books but this one was so enjoyable. I read all the intros to each section and they were hilarious and very clever. You can really hear the voice of the book which is a very VERY Jewish mother in all the traditional Yiddish flavor that involves.

I used to read my mother's copy of this when I was a kid. In some ways it is now really dated, but I don't care. I needed a copy of it anyway. It doesn't have all my mother's notes in it, but that's ok too, for now.

This is NOT the cover on my book! My mom has the 1959, 7th printing edition.
