Carpe Kitchen! The door of the Peter Pauper Press vault has swung open to release our legendary old-school cookbooks…for your e-reader!
Whether you wish to revisit fond memories of your grandmother’s matzoh ball soup or try your hand at babka for the first time, Simple Jewish Cookery is your guide to the time-honored nosh. Culinary matriarch extraordinare Edna Beilenson outdid herself with this compendium of traditional dishes as they’re meant to be. Serve her take on Chopped Liver at your seder, and you'll be anything but. Skip the bakery and eat your Shabbos Challah warm from the oven. Try your hand at savory homemade Gefilte Fish—the stuff in the jar isn't a patch on it. If you're not much for fish, fry a golden Knish. Bakers may find their new favorite Hamantashen recipe. Dig a little deeper and try a lesser-known Purim treat, Honeyed Nahit, or sweeten the new year on Rosh Hashanah with Teglach. Lovely woodblock prints illuminate the recipes.
