Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
The Classic Cuisine of the Italian Jews by Edda Servi Machlin is a wonderful mosaic of history, hearth and herbs.
Hadassah Magazine
The recipes are a delight.
New York Times Book Review
This book would be suitable as either a Christmas or a Hanukkah gift, and is one of the most intriguing collections to come along in years...Her book is rich in details of the daily life of the now almost extinct community of Tuscan Jews in Pitigliano, and she includes recipes from the unique cuisine developed by the Sephardic Jews, who modified Italian dishes to fit their dietary laws... there is no doubt about the value of this informative work - Mimi Sheraton
