Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Machlin is the author of the two-part Classic Cuisine of the Italian Jews and of Child of the Ghetto, a memoir about growing up in a small town in Italy before and during World War II. Her dessert book, which includes recipes from all over Italy, is part memoir as well, with reminiscences of family life in happier times along with references to the harsh realities of the war. Headnotes provide background for many of the more unusual sweets, and, like her earlier cookbooks, this one includes recipes that might otherwise have been lost. Strongly recommended.

Foreword

Before I even met Edda Servi Machlin, I had read and cooked from through her delightful and impressive two volumes of The Classic Cuisine of the Italian Jews.. Here Edda gathered recipes, culture and, indeed, history that may have been lost forever without her careful recollection. Despite the horror that Edda witnessed during the Holocaust in her native land, she has risen above this to embrace the Italian life that was her family's for generations before her.

Having met her only briefly before writing my own book, The Jewish Holiday Baker, I knew she had to be one of the 13 cooks from around the world portrayed in the book. Thankfully, I got to know her even better during the many days I spent with her cooking and talking while we were filming for the public television series, "Jewish Cooking in America with Joan Nathan".

In this third volume of Edda's, "the icing on the cake," she has reached out beyond her native Pitigliano to encompass Italian Jewish sweets from throughout the country (and from elsewhere as well). These are recipes that she clearly has used throughout her life. What's more, Lou Myers' adorable illustrations also remind us that cooking (and, of course, eating) is one of life's great pleasures.

A historian by trade and a humanitarian by nature, Edda continues to be a gift to the Jewish world and, for all of us, a living testament to the over 2,000-year legacy of Italian Jewry.—Joan Nathan
