    In my library of over 100 cookbooks, many of them Jewish in content, this is the one I consult first before looking at any others. The recipes are truly wonderful, easy to follow and typical of the Jewish cookery I was brought up on. I have given copies of the book to my children and friends interested in the “real thing” and they all agree with me. The blintzes are outstanding and never let me down. It’s the 1 book I couldn’t be without to try “new old recipes”.

    I’ve been using this book for almost forty years. It includes many traditional Eastern European traditional recipes that are time tested and easy to follow. When I got married, this became my wife’s number one cookbook. It is now falling apart and I am ordering another one. These are the recipes that I remember from my childhood. Additionally the recipes can be followed by one who is not a cook.

    This is the best, easiest-to-follow traditional Jewish recipe book I know of. I’ve have a paperback from the 1960’s that I’ve held together with rubber bands, since it was out of print and unreplacable. I’m glad to see it’s been reprinted. Whenever I’ve made anything from this book, my kitchen smells the way my grandmother’s–and my husband’s grandmother’s–once did. I love this book and I’m giving it to friends and relatives, who I know will appreciate it.

    The Jewish mother/family humor is dated and a little over the top, but it doesn’t matter. The recipes are great. This is genuine, unmodernized Ashkenazi cooking, the way my grandma cooked. There’s a great selection of recipes for every occasion–everyday, Shabbat, and holidays. No fancy ingredients, and the recipes are easy to follow.

    If you want to wallow in nostalgia, this is it.

    I bought this cookbook about 35 years ago when I had a Jewish boyfriend, a New Yorker who landed in Texas for graduate school and had brought me a bagel from New York as a kind of courtship gift. I had no idea who Molly Goldberg really was until many years later when someone told me about the radio program. Anyway, I come from Texas German Czech stock, so cooking dumplings and cabbage rolls and soups is second nature to me and I used this book until it fell apart. I am buying another one. One time I made the calf tongue baked with tomatoes and I am not kidding you that neighborhood cats lined up on the fence across from my kitchen window and meowed and howled until I brought them a little bit of the neck of the tongue (which has a very naughty name in yiddish). The instructions on what to do with lox wings and bits are great. I tried it out at Zabar’s after I moved to New York. Knedlock with chicken broth, (sp) and the stuffed cabbage rolls are great.(grate the onion) I recommend it with all my heart.
