What a match or as we say in yiddish, quite a shidduch! As it states in the book: "Daniella has an extraordinary sense of color and presentation, while Norene possesses a wealth of understanding and knowledge of kosher cooking techniques. . Bring them together, and it's like having two gourmet chefs with you in your kitchen!"
From Norene: When I first met Daniella and saw her passion and commitment, I was very excited about helping her achieve her goal of writing her own cookbook. Daniella reminded me of myself when I was her age. Daniella and I make a perfect partnership as a writing team because we each have unique strengths that merge together, resulting in one clear vision. Working with Daniella was an opportunity to use my culinary wisdom and knowledge in a productive way, making a difference for future generations.
From Daniella: After discussing the concept of a cookbook with my family, I decided to explore possibilities. I phoned Norene Gilletz a well-known local author who had published nine successful cookbooks. Both my mother and grandmother used Norene's book Second Helpings Please! as a staple in their kitchens. My heart raced as I dialed Norene's number. I thought what will she say? What I didn't know was that despite her hugely successful career, Norene is a down to earth friendly person, generous with her time and advice. It was the coming together of 2 generations- A Match Made in Heaven"...A labor of love, which took 2 years.
