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.
Try these recipes for: 
Pickled Herring Salad
Apple Cake with Yeast Dough (Apfelkuchen)

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.
