This is the most useable book of Ashkenazi American recipes I've found. Whenever I make a dish for passover or something out of here, people are surprised that they like something that they usually think of as unappealing (pay special attention to the tsimmes recipe, for example). This book straddles the line between things that my grandmother would make and things I would make, and everything comes out the way I imagine it will from the description. I think this is an overlooked classic.
