    A reviewer

    I have owned this cookbook for several years and have always been happy with every recipe I try. It is a terrific collection of Jewish recipes from around the world. That is why I was shocked to read one reviewer write 'I'm not looking for a sampling of Jewish recipes from all over the world, I'm looking for the tried and true, known cultural dishes from Jews.' DUH! Jews come from all over the world and this book reflects that. My ancestors are both sephardic and ashkenazic, and they would be satisfied to eat at Gil Marks' table.

    This is a great book for people who are looking to experiment with new foods. There are great variations on traditional recipes and recipes for the standards. Everything I've made has come out well. I particularly think that the stuffed cabbage recipe and the bread recipes are worth the price of the book!

    A Fun Read

    I did not find this book disappointing, rather I found it a very interesting book filled with many stories and recipes. I bought the book about two years ago, growing up in New York City and Brooklyn, I was looking for recipes that I knew and loved from my area as a child. I have referred to the book for its recipes (some better than others--I think the reader should try the recipes and adjust to taste), but more than that, I've sat down and actually read the book from cover to cover. I enjoyed the stories included by the author of the history of a certain recipe, whether from Eastern or Central Europe, Yemen, Italy, Morocco or the Rhine Valley. This book is not strictly a recipe book, it falls more under the rare category of an overview of a culture, its diverse people, and how food is shared with family--something we all have in common and an important part of all of our lives, whether we are of Jewish descent or not. I enjoyed Gil Marks' stories and the many photographs dispersed throughout the pages. If you're looking for more than just a cookbook, I think you'll find this book is for you.

    Poor quality

    I did not like how this book was organized at all. I'm not looking for a sampling of Jewish recipes from all over the world, I'm looking for the tried and true, known cultural dishes from Jews. I have browsed through much better Jewish cookbooks at bookstores and at libraries.
