Book:  Our Mother's Recipe's
Genre: Jewish Cookbook
Video Book Review: and

Add a wonderful cuisine to your everyday meals and special gatherings. Traditional Jewish cooking is flavorful, fun and hearty particularly with Our Mother's Recipes, Carrying on a Jewish Tradition. These recipes have been handed down through many generations influenced by Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Spanish, German and Eastern European styles of cooking. In our family all of these cultural influences were combined, synthesized and affected by local ingredients through the years resulting in sumptuous, rich and wonderfully fulfilling traditional Jewish dishes. Try our mother's farfel instead of noodles. Replace that tired chocolate cake with some really yummy Helen Feldman brownies or warm fruit compote. You will have the secret to Jewish penicillin, chicken soup with matzo balls. There's enough here to keep you going for years of great food, family, friends and memories to enjoy.

I had my doubts how good this book would come across on kindle, however the pictures were quite clear, the recipes sound mouth wateringly good too! I haven't had chance to try any of the recipes as yet but the book has piqued my interest into trying to make a few of the recipes. Although I loved the book on kindle I would probably recommend the actual physical book, as its just my preference that cookbooks should be held and flicked through etc. The book may contain Jewish recipes but I think anyone would find them suitable and like them.
I loved the aspect of the book that the brother and sister team were writing up their mothers recipes and recipes that had been handed down to her by their grandparents etc.
