For everyone who has been waiting to get more information on our new book, Food Family and Tradition; Hungarian Kosher Family Recipes and Remembrances by Lynn Kirsche Shapiro, here is the latest news. The website for The Cherry Press, which published the book, has just gone live. You can go there to read about the development of the book, to see photos of some the recipes, to find new recipes and if you have not yet ordered the book on our website, you now have a choice: you can either order the book on our website (go to our home page and scroll to the bottom) or order on The Cherry Press.
Whatever your choice is, do not miss out on the opportunity to buy the book. Sit down with a cup of coffee, or a “glazele” tea, and read the stories and history of Hungarian/Czech Jewry prior to the Nazi invasion and the Holocaust. Read about the seemingly small acts of kindness and humanity by Survivors during the Holocaust and about how they rebuilt their lives with courage and optimism. And then learn about the strong, vibrant Jewish community of Munkacs which existed under communism during the Soviet rule. Prepare the recipes, sit around the table with your family and friends and enjoy the foods our family has enjoyed for generations.
And please stay in touch. Send us your comments and your stories and recipes.
Wishing you and your family a “gut gebencht yaar”, a Shana Tova.
