Food, Family and Tradition: Hungarian Kosher Family Racipes and Remembrances
Shipping calculated at checkout
Shapiro’s collection of Jewish Hungarian recipes (with a little Czech material as well) is enriched by family lore: her father’s recollection of community matzoh-making gatherings before World War II; her mother’s recounting how she taught a new bride to make dumplings with what few ingredients could be scrounged in the months following the war’s end; stories of the grocery her parents opened after they arrived in the US.
Among the recipes you’ll find sweet and sour green bean soup, potato and egg casserole, and lekech, a Rosh Hashana honey cake. Intimate and charming.
