Introduction: Recipe for a cookbook
So IG++m sitting minding my own business, and IG++m thinking, I know
IG++ll collect my auntsG++ recipes and put them in a book
So look what happened! Meet the family, each with a recipe and a story to tell
YouG++re gonna need a scorecard. (The photos will help.)
BG++raysheet: in the beginning
Back in Slonim, first they liked us, then they hated usG++Papa Harry said, G++Enough already!G++ How my grandparents set down roots in the Promised Land, and from there sprang the whole mishpuchah
Cooking kosher
To play the game you gotta know the rules
If youG++re observant, you know all this stuff already
If not, hereG++s a quick course in separating the meat from the dairy
A little nosh before the main event
Not G++littleG++ like the French with their dainty amuse-bouches
Not that little
And why just one? Have a knish and borekas and some chopped liver too
And a little hummus would be good
And try the eggplant
Hummus with the eggplant
Soups.. I donG++t care what you sayG++my motherG++s chicken soup really is better than your motherG++s
Better than anybodyG++s
But it doesnG++t stop there
Carrot, Mushroom Barley, Roasted Beet Borscht, lentil . . . and Shiitake Mushroom Matzoh Balls to go with them all! Soups from the Old World and soups from the New
You peel, you chop, and then you crunch
From Mandarin to Indian to Israeli, Korean, and ThaiG++I mean the salads, not the people
TheyG++re Jewish
Well, some of them are Israeli
Oh, you get the idea
YouG++re thinking, Jewish cookbookG++brisket
(Not that thereG++s anything wrong with that!) WeG++ve got four, not counting two for the cholents, and darn proud of it! But thereG++s also Moroccan Spicy Apricot Lamb Shanks, Hazelnut Crusted Rack of Lamb, Osso Buco, Spanish Short Rib Stew. . . . Go ahead
Poultry ..
Toasted with fennel, baked with cherries and chili sauce, stir-fried with walnuts, grilled with mustard and herbsG++if it clucks youG++ll find it here
And no part of the chickenG++ or turkey or henG++is ever wasted
Fish ..
ThereG++s more than herring and gefilte in this chapter
Okay, lox too
Okay, herring and gefilte are in appetizers, and lox is in breakfast
But the other fish are here, like salmon five ways to Sunday and sea bass and halibut and mahi-mahi and Vegetables...
They didnG++t eat G++em in Slonim, but weG++re in this country now
Flash-roasted asparagus
Portobello wrap
Southwestern Tsimmes in Chile Pockets
Triple Corn Pudding to die for
Spinach-Stuffed Squash
So be good and eat your veggies
Dessert is coming in just 130 pages
Potatoes, noodles, rice, and grains..
You want comfort? IG++ll give you comfort: Three kinds of latkes, a dozen noodle kugels, pirogen (potato and cheese), mamaliga, shlishkes, stuffings, sweet potatoesG++with marshmallows, sure, but also with pecans or honey-orange glaze
And these they call side dishes?
You donG++t have to be Jewish to love challah
But put away the knife and tear off a piece
Unless youG++re making a French toast casserole or challah chips
Then you can use the knife
And if you donG++t have a bread machine, get one for the pita
YouG++ll thank me
(If youG++re looking for onion rolls, pretzels, biscuits, and scones, theyG++re in here too.)
Breakfast ..
The most important meal of the day
Well, the most fun
Try the Hoppel-Poppel or blintzes or Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes orG++ wait! Caramel French ToastG++no! Apple and Cheese-Stuffed French Toast
Oh, I canG++t make up m
