    Jewish cooking?! I think not.

    If you are looking to cook like a Jewish grandma, this is not the book for you! Crabmeat starters for Yom Kippur?! Lots of meat dishes and recommended with cheese-based sides?! Your Jewish Grandmother would be shocked and saddened to find that these recipes are what's passed off as Jewish cooking. The authors spend a lot of time worrying about kosher wine, what about kosher food and kosher recipes?! HELLO?! Just because there's a brisket and kugel recipe does not make this a Jewish cookbook. Look for a Joan Nathan book or even the Second Ave Deli cookbook if you want the real story in Jewish cooking. Those recipes aren't that hard, and if you want to be a real balabusta and make your grandparents proud...don't serve crab on erev yom kippur! APPALING! I can't believe I spent money on this book.

    Fun Book for Beginners!

    This book states right up front that it's not kosher and most definitely not about sticking to any rules. What it is, is a great, informative, fun book that gives beginners the tools and tips to start their own family holiday traditions. The recipes are delicious and simple and the "Cliffs Notes" on Jewish holidays are perfect for those who need a little refresher course. It's lighthearted and doesn't take itself too seriously... and that's exactly what sets it apart from other "Jewish" cookbooks. I've already gifted it to several friends who loved it.

    Love This Book!

    As a newlywed, I knew the time was coming when I was going to have to host the jewish holidays for my parents and in-laws - the stress! My mom isn't much of a cook, none of her recipes were written down anyway, and a lot of the Jewish cookbooks I found were more snazzy, new, international or exciting ways of cooking for the holidays - not what I was looking for. I love the traditional dishes and a cookbook like this was exactly what I needed. I practiced a few recipes: the noodle kugel and the brisket, and they turned out phenomenally - the best versions of these dishes I have ever had! The book was easy to follow, cute and fun. I am looking forward to sharing these recipes over the holidays with my family. Simply put, this book was a lifesaver. It would also make a great bridal shower or housewarming gift. Order it - you will love it!
