German Jewish Cookbook Cover
The German-Jewish Cookbook

By Gabrielle Rossmer Gropman and Sonya Gropman
Brandeis University Press

Food Tradition is very important to us; Recipes offer a glimpse into the cultural history of people, and their foodways. Through vintage recipes we learn what people ate and how they lived. The German Jewish cookbook accomplishes this. The reader is transported into pre-WWII Germany, and the recipes which traveled with families escaping the war and turbulence in Europe. This cookbook features recipes with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, including soups, challah, vegetable dishes; meats, poultry, fish and desserts, ranging from cold weather comfort food to light summer fare. The authors, the Gropmans - a mother-daughter pair, have celebrated original recipes that Gabrielle remembered from her youth. She arrived in the U.S in 1939.


From the authors: “Some of these recipes come from friends and family; 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.
The cookbook is illustrated with fifty drawings and photographs, and will appeal to those interested in Jewish German cuisine, how it evolved, and how to replicate these much beloved dishes. The collection is the first German-Jewish cookbook in a century. It is a history and memoir with over 100 recipes. It is  a memorable, informative and delicious window into an important period of Jewish food history.

Masala Mamas cookbook cover
Masala Mamas
Recipes and stories from Indian women changing their communities
through food and love

A Vegetarian, Kosher Cookbook
Lioness Publishers

Elana Sztokman, Editor

Some years ago Jacob Sztokman was in Mumbai for his position as a marketing executive, and was taken for a visit to the Kalwa slum. There he found that children, as young as five, were working instead of attending school. They needed 60 rupees each (about 80 cents) from working so that they could pay for their food each day. Sztokman went into action. Years later, he is still working to help the children of Kalwa. In collaboration with his wife Dr. Elana Sztokman this cookbook, Masala Mamas, is the latest step in this effort.

Masala Mamas is a cookbook to benefit the families of the Kalwa slum in Mumbai India. The book tells the story of an amazing group of women who are cooking and working to motivate kids to go to school, and encourage families to send them. Through the pages of this meaningful book, you will meet the Masala Mamas, 16 women who live in the Kalwa slum and are dedicating their lives to providing hot meals for kids in school. Early every morning, with love and dedication, they cook hundreds of hot, nutritious meals for the children –made from fresh local ingredients and aromatic spices. The Masala Mamas cookbook shares very personal stories and authentic recipes. As I read it, some sections brought tears, and other sections smiles. The book “is about women, friendship, social change, Indian culture, and most of all love. All through food.”

For more information on how to support this worthy organization, visit GabrielProjectMumbai.org which cares for vulnerable children and their communities in several underserved rural slums of Maharashtra, India. The project is a grassroots response to poverty, malnutrition, ill-health, hunger and child labor in India.

Millennial Kosher Cover
Millennial Kosher ...
recipes reinvented for the modern palate
By Chanie Apfelbaum, Artscroll/Shaar Press

The growing community of Kosher Food Bloggers and writers has made a difference in kosher menus and palates nationally and internationally. How people cook and what people cook has evolved and expanded due to the influence and knowledge of this amazing group of food journalists, online influencers and published cookbook authors. Since its beginning, in 2009, KosherEye has been a leader in its formation. In partnership with Esti Berkowitz and Lois Held, KosherEye developed the annual get together the KosherFEAST Media Dinner. We take pride in this achievement and how it has united, networked and transformed the world of online kosher. We are a food family!

Chanie Apfelbaum, creator of the popular blog Busy in Brooklyn is part of this ever growing group, making us even more delighted to receive her first cookbook! In Millennial Kosher, Chanie has taken her love and passion for cooking, and shared 150 recipes for the contemporary kosher home. She presents a collection of “modern, cultural, and trendy, dishes that reflect her passion for reinventing traditional foods with a Millennial vibe.” Chanie’s photographs, which accompany each recipe, are simply mouthwateringly sensational. We particularly like her chapter on staples and the section on tools and equipment. We found both humor and helpful knowledge in this chapter. Our kosher meat education was upgraded when we read the section “Guide to Kosher Meat Cookery”. Who knew that chuck eye roast, square roast, brick roast, California roast and French roast are likely the same cut, named differently according to the fancy of the butcher.

The recipes are clear, easy to follow and “creatively classic”! A few on our list to try soon-- Mile High S’Mores Pie (sounds great, doesn’t it?) Bubby’s Cabbage Soup with Flanken, Crockpot Pulled Beef, and One Bowl Honey Challah. (We’ll post pictures!)

This book will make a delicious addition to a cookbook library, whether the recipient is a Millennial or a Baby Boomer, or somewhere in between.

From Chanie
“For years I’ve been posting reviews of other cookbooks on my blog, and I never imagined the day would actually come when I’d be able to post my own. Being a cookbook author has been a dream of mine for a long time, but as a mom of five, I just didn’t know how to make it work. I was waiting for the right time – when I had no babies at home, when my schedule would clear up, when I…when I…when I…. Last year, I finally decided that there’s no such thing as a good time to write a cookbook, and if I wanted to truly actualize my dream, I had to just bite the bullet and go for it! …My dreams are coming true and I am so grateful.”

 Bais yaakov 2 cover

Bais Yaakov Cookbook 2

An Exclusive Collection of Traditional and Contemporary Recipes to Elevate Shabbos, YomTov and The Everyday. Batsheva Weinstein, Editor;  Distributed by Feldheim.

This is the second edition of the series, a follow-up to the very popular original Bais Yaakov Cookbook. In addition to over 150 recipes accompanied by the photos of the talented photographer/food stylist John Uher, the book shares halachic guidelines as they relate to cooking. There is comprehensive culinary information for food preparation, measurement, selection, a food brachos guide, and a fruit/vegetable cleaning chart. 

We think that Bais Yaakov 2 is a “must” have in a kosher cookbook library, appropriate for the newbie homemaker or the seasoned cook. To quote the editors: the purpose of The Bais Yaakov 2 cookbook is “to continue to elevate, inspire and infuse the table with spirituality. This cookbook is a project of the Fund for Jewish Education -- All proceeds go to Tzedakah. 

Enjoy these fabulous recipes from this fabulous cookbook;

From Workman Publishing

It is not often that we receive multiple cookbooks from the same publisher – and can’t wait to share news about each. None of these are “kosher” cookbooks, but we found each essential to the kosher cook or any cook. For those recipes which do not conform to kosher rules, we simply change the meat or other ingredients. If you have a question, we are happy to help you find an appropriate substitute.

How to Instant Pot cover

How to Instant Pot
by Daniel Shumski, Workman Publishing

We love our Instant Pot, period. We have a 6-quart Duo, and use it regularly to pressure cook chuck, brisket, stews and top of the rib roasts. However with its 100 recipes and guides, this book has widened our repertoire. In addition to detailed, understandable usage instructions, and a chart with cooking time guidelines, there are simple recipes for caramelized onions; chili, beans, potato chowder, wild rice, quick pickled vegetables. Additionally, there is an entire slow cooker section. As one reviewer stated: This book should be in the Instant Pot packing box. We agree!

It is a guide on how to select, clean, cut cook and enjoy a selection of 100 vegetables from A-Z. The book is now up front, accessible and at the ready in our kitchen. We found the photographs extremely helpful and the butchery information comprehensive and easily understandable.
