5.0 out of 5 stars The "Torah" of jewish cooking 4 Nov 2008
By Vlad Trifa - Published on Amazon.com
A truly amazing book. I received that book from a friend, and just by quickly skimming through I was amazed by this book. Not only it contains a very brief history of jewish culture over ages, but it also shows why/how different tastes have evolved in jewish culture. This book is no mean feat, as it covers most classical dishes found in different places of the world, with particular spices (for examples dishes of russian and eastern european jews with large use of dill, potates, creams, etc) but also from north african food with their specific tastes (very arabic ingredients and spices). It is also extensively illustrated, and well organized into different sections (meat, poultry, entrees, soups, deserts, vegan foods, salads, pickles, etc), even has a chapter on how to bake different breads.

This book is the most amazing cookbook I own (I have 40+ other), because of its "encyclopedical" quest to completeness and variety, and also because most dishes are quite easy to do. Really worth it for people who want to make easy and tasteful dishes for their friends, and also who want to discover in an entertaining manner the history Jewish culture through their food.

This is one of those cookbooks that has something for everyone. It is full of healthy yet yummy food. One warning - you have to use the deserts with restraint or you will put on the weight!
