Book review: Jewish Cooking around the world
This book " Jewish Cooking around the World : gourmet and holiday recipes" was one of the first cookbooks I got to use and start cooking so many years ago. Since my family usually only had fish, Italian and mostly jewish meals (I am from New England) there were many things I never tried. I think the first one I tried was a Persian chopped lamb dish (very good) . I was hooked to try more. Choosing from the holiday or country recipes I tried a few more.I just tried the chopped chicken livers but it was a little bland so I took it to another level. Greece, North Africa and other countries are represented and they are good to getting started with.Each chapter also has some jewish oriented fact and information that relates to the holiday or the country. Good solid jewish recipes here. Looking for out of the way different from the ordinary well this might not be the one for you. But it is a good start like it was for me to get to know cuisines and jewish food from other countries.
