This cookbook features recipes for German-Jewish cuisine as
it existed in Germany prior to World War II, and as refugees later
adapted it in the United States and elsewhere. Because these dishes
differ from more familiar Jewish food, they will be a discovery for many
people. With a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, this indispensable
collection of recipes includes numerous soups, both chilled and hot;
vegetable dishes; meats, poultry, and fish; fruit desserts; cakes; and
the German version of challah, Berches. These elegant and mostly
easy-to-make recipes range from light summery fare to hearty winter
foods. The Gropmans―a mother-daughter author pair―have honored the
original recipes Gabrielle learned after arriving as a baby in
Washington Heights from Germany in 1939, while updating their format to
reflect contemporary standards of recipe writing. Six recipe chapters
offer easy-to-follow instructions for weekday meals, Shabbos and holiday
meals, sausage and cold cuts, vegetables, coffee and cake, and core
recipes basic to the preparation of German-Jewish cuisine. Some of these
recipes come from friends and family of the authors; others have been
culled from interviews conducted by the authors, prewar German-Jewish
cookbooks, nineteenth-century American cookbooks, community cookbooks,
memoirs, or historical and archival material. The introduction explains
the basics of Jewish diet (kosher law). The historical chapter that
follows sets the stage by describing Jewish social customs in Germany
and then offering a look at life in the vibrant émigré community of
Washington Heights in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s. Vividly
illustrated with more than fifty drawings by Megan Piontkowski and
photographs by Sonya Gropman that show the cooking process as well as
the delicious finished dishes, this cookbook will appeal to readers
curious about ethnic cooking and how it has evolved, and to anyone
interested in exploring delicious new recipes.

Congratulations to the authors not only for plugging a vital gap in the history of Ashkenazi cuisine but doing it with so much passion, style and authenticity.
I might only be a goy but Im a big fan of Jew food and the culture of the Ashkenazi kitchen / table. Theres a lot of good books about the food from further east and of course the deli tradition. But I couldnt help wondering how German Jews had eaten. Well you guys certainly helped answer that question. So many recipes Im looking forward Congratulations to the authors not only for plugging a vital gap in the history of Ashkenazi cuisine but doing it with so much passion, style and authenticity.
I might only be a goy but I’m a big fan of Jew food and the culture of the Ashkenazi kitchen / table. There’s a lot of good books about the food from further east and of course the deli tradition. But I couldn’t help wondering how German Jews had eaten. Well you guys certainly helped answer that question. So many recipes I’m looking forward to try.
Especially enjoyed the stories about Washington Heights or the 4th Reich as I just reached the chapter on German immigration to the USA in the 30’s in Peter Watson’s fantastic book “The German Genius”. It all came together nicely.
Seriously good book - thank you so much. ...more

Oh, the flavors of Jewish cooking: This book does a lot of "back to basics", with recipes for stuffed cabbage, rugelachs, potato latkes, and chicken soup with matzo balls.
But it adds some new ones, such as a special potato challah and donut called doughnut, herring salad, radish salad and chilled sour cherry soup as well as a kosher version of the traditional German dish kohlrabi in white sauce.
From asparagus and coconut macaroons, and beyond, this book is a trove of mouth-watering recipes.

I had excellent intentions of "reading" this cookbook (which I've purchased!), but that just hasn't happened yet. And if it hasn't happened yet, I suspect it's not likely to happen soon. So back to "want-to-read" it goes.
