I have known Marlena Spieler for years, a lady who makes food jump off the page and helps the reader experience the flavours just by reading.
In this book, Marlena reflects the rich and varied history of the Jewish people in their traditional foods and dishes. This wonderfully evocative cookbook takes you on a journey through the evolution of a cuisine that is inexorably linked to the past as well as the present.
The recipe section features the classic dishes that every Jewish grandmother will know, together with recipes that draw on the culinary traditions of the global Jewish community.
Marlena is a passionate cook who discovered her love of cooking in Israel as a teenager. She has written more than 30 cookbooks, and writes for newspapers in the UK and USA.
