Title: Persian Food from the Non-Persian Bride



Title: Persian Food from the Non-Persian Bride


Author: Reyna Simnegar


Publisher: Feldheim


 


 


   Savor the flavor and laugh along with the author as Reyna Simnegar teaches you about Persian cookery and life. Feldheim Publishing has done an outstanding job of presenting a handsome cookbook with references to normal human interactions in dating and marriage rather than pretending everyone adheres to “Three Dates and You’re Done” behavior. Persian Food from the Non-Persian Bride is as much about the author’s cross-country courtship and marital adjustments as it is about food. The bonus is that you’ll eat wonderfully aromatic, delicious food by following the author’s simple recipes and her cheerful path to a well-adjusted life.

 

   Simnegar explains how she met and married a man from a different cultural background, settled happily into Orthodox Jewish life and learned to prepare dreams to dine on. Her handy references to kitchen tools and food essentials (plus how and where to buy them!) are complemented by health tips. Readers learn how to avoid extra “artery-clogging” calories by baking some foods instead of frying them. Marginal comments about cancer- and other disease-fighting ingredients in her recipes are Simnegar’s other terrific tips for more satisfying meals.

 

   Her “Tricks of the Trade” comments alert conscientious cooks about how to prepare her recipes in pareve fashion, too. Yes, they’re delicious.

 

   Use a sturdy, clear page-protector when you set this book on kitchen counters. Soiling it with kitchen splatter would be a shame. Full-color photographs show first-time cooks how the finished products should look. That can be helpful to anyone unfamiliar with the recipes or Persian cuisine.

 

   The only drawback to Persian Food from the Non-Persian Bride is the lack of photos of Reyna Simnegar. We see her manicured nails and wristwatch, the faces of her children and beautiful kitchenware in many shots, but never “meet” the author herself. Perhaps we’ll get to see her smiling at her entrees or readers in the next edition of Persian Food from the Non-Persian Bride Book II: More Good Food.

Tehilim 71:9 reads “Do not cast me off in the time of old age; Do not forsake me when my strength fails.” The message is apropos to the endeavor – wonder and spirituality ruled as respect for aging heroes of the Shoah increased among Leo Baeck students.

Title: The Kosher Grapevine: Exploring the World of Wine
Author: Irving Langer
Publisher: Gefen

Breathe deeply. You’ll need maximum physical and spiritual power to absorb the uplifting lessons in this book. Page 249 explains why some Jews are praised as “fish on dry land,” a phrase that describes Moshe Rabeinu. Am Yisrael began to appreciate his depth of character at kriat Yam Suf, realizing that “he lived in the revealed world as though he were in the concealed world.”

Author Irving Langer provides his own look at wine-making as well as the nature of the storage barrels used to age wines for taste perfection. He intersperses the book with Jewish historical facts and figures, a few jokes and photographs, and advice on how to pair wines with specific foods.

Unlike formulaic biographies from popular publishing houses in the Orthodox Jewish world, Beyond Politics is not predictable. The vignettes of individual men and women who trekked through Ethiopia and Sudan, flew in from Austria, India, and Algeria, or were born on Israeli soil are gritty, adventurous, and heartwarming.

Title: The Koren Ethiopian Haggada Journey to Freedom: Celebrating Ethiopian Jewish History, Traditions & Customs

Most of the No-Potato Passover recipes are as casual as the title’s spelling: some include only six ingredients and limited prep time – half to one full hour. They’re good for heart health and waistlines, too.

The Hebrew-English haggada provides a wealth of photographic evidence of the lives led by Ethiopian Jews. The pottery, the unembellished homes, school, and synagogues, the gaunt Jews in modest clothing and head coverings portray dedication to Torah values despite harsh political and topographical conditions.
