Syrian-Jewish Recipes From Grandma Fritzie's Kitchen
Let Jennifer Abadi be your guide to the best–kept secrets in Middle Eastern cuisine. Abadi embarked on this book as a labor of love—an intimate culinary food album featuring more than 125 Syrian–Jewish recipes. It includes warm family anecdotes, and stories of Syrian-Jewish culture and history—with help from her grandmother, Fritzie Abadi. Along with her grandmother, the author’s mission was to record and preserve all the wonderful Syrian-Jewish dishes she had grown up with and that she feared would be lost to future generations.
At this time, with the unrest and horrors happening in Syria, the classic recipes and food memories shared by Grandma Fritzie and Jennifer Abadi become particularly meaningful, cherished, and oh how delicious!
The reviews agree:
“For Syrian Jewish women, cooking is an art form, shared among neighbors and families but closely guarded from outsiders. Luckily, Abadi offers these secrets in her book.” — Publishers Weekly
