The book emphasizes the importance of Jewish food to Jewish life, and the authors' interest in the origins of both the ingredients and the meanings of dishes. This cookbook shares 150 accessible kosher recipes for authentic Jewish food, including personal stories and anecdotes, a basic explanation of Jewish dietary laws along and a simple glossary of terms.

KosherEye Notes: After reading this cookbook cover to cover, and trying some of the recipes, we feel like we know the authors, Ruth and Simon, and have shared deliciousness in their kitchens. Not only do we want to continue our recipe journey through this cookbook, but we want to return to Wales and visit Ruth while she cooks. By the way, we have been to Wales and as this book reflects, Wales is a most beautiful, scenic, friendly and welcoming country.
