Scraping sounds awake you from your sleep. Something putrid is moving underneath the bed, with razor talons only a thin mattress away from tearing you to shreds. Cringing with disbelief, in a panic you suddenly flee from the bedroom and down the stairs, screaming. In the living room, your corner vision catches a pair of glowing eyes shifting across the large picture window, and when you turn to look they are still there, only now joined with a drooling maw of fangs. As your heart races to the point of bursting from your chest, you flatten yourself against the wall trying praying to remain unseen until a ghostly, disembodied voice whispers your name from down the hallway. It sounds like a child, but you and your wife have no children. Your wife? Oh, God, where is she? There, in the kitchen she stands, smiling. At last, a piece of sanity from this insane night, and you rush to your loving mate. Behind her back she holds a gleaming butcher knife, waiting to return your embrace. In one swift stoke, her hand arcs down, and you Turn the page onto the next chapter, nervously anticipating what new horror awaits you this evening.

About my dream of cooking The kitchen has always been the center of things for me. Cooking is relaxing, it takes me into a whole different mindset, it calms in times of decision making, and brings back to my childhood. It comforts me and brings me warm hugs as I cook from the heart. The flavors, aromas, colors and textures of the food I create and impresses a more profound a recollection. This book captures memories, some shared recipes, some cooking methods. Each recipe represents a culinary journey, for which is a derived form of love that I put in each recipe. Beyond the pleasure of reading, cooking and enjoying meals with friends and family, I hope my recipes inspire you. This appeal is to any level of home cook. And can add to anyone's cookbook collection. Some of the soups are classic, some have just that certain twist, but all are stuff from which taste and memories are made. I want to thank my husband for his support and encouragement in this project which was my dream, and sampling my soups through the good and the bad.

This cookbook features recipes for German-Jewish cuisine as it existed in Germany prior to World War II, and as refugees later adapted it in the United States and elsewhere. Because these dishes differ from more familiar Jewish food, they will be a discovery for many people. With a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients, this indispensable collection of recipes includes numerous soups, both chilled and hot; vegetable dishes; meats, poultry, and fish; fruit desserts; cakes; and the German version of challah, Berches. These elegant and mostly easy-to-make recipes range from light summery fare to hearty winter foods. The Gropmans-a mother-daughter author pair-have honored the original recipes Gabrielle learned after arriving as a baby in Washington Heights from Germany in 1939, while updating their format to reflect contemporary standards of recipe writing. Six recipe chapters offer easy-to-follow instructions for weekday meals, Shabbos and holiday meals, sausage and cold cuts, vegetables, coffee and cake, and core recipes basic to the preparation of German-Jewish cuisine. Some of these recipes come from friends and family of the authors; others have been culled from interviews conducted by the authors, prewar German-Jewish cookbooks, nineteenth-century American cookbooks, community cookbooks, memoirs, or historical and archival material. The introduction explains the basics of Jewish diet (kosher law). The historical chapter that follows sets the stage by describing Jewish social customs in Germany and then offering a look at life in the vibrant _migr_ community of Washington Heights in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s. Vividly illustrated with more than fifty drawings by Megan Piontkowski and photographs by Sonya Gropman that show the cooking process as well as the delicious finished dishes, this cookbook will appeal to readers curious about ethnic cooking and how it has evolved, and to anyone interested in exploring delicious new recipes.

Inventing Jewish Ritual

Vanessa Ochs invites her readers to explore how Jewish practice can be more meaningful through renewing, reshaping, and even creating new rituals, such as naming ceremonies for welcoming baby girls, healing services, Miriam’s cup, mitzvah days, egalitarian wedding practices, and commitment ceremonies. We think of rituals—the patterned ways of doing things that have shared and often multiple meanings— as being steeped in tradition and therefore unalterable. But rituals have always been reinvented. When we perform ancient rituals in a particular place and time they are no longer quite the same rituals they once were. Each is a debut, an innovation: this Sabbath meal, this Passover seder, this wedding—firsts in their own unique ways. In the last 30 years there has been a surge of interest in reinventing ritual, in what is called minhag America. Ochs describes the range and diversity of interest in this Jewish American experience and examines how it reflects tradition as it revives Jewish culture and faith. And she shows us how to create our own ritual objects, sacred spaces, ceremonies, and liturgies that can be paths to greater personal connection with history and with holiness: baby-naming ceremonies for girls, divorce rituals, Shabbat practices, homemade haggadahs, ritual baths, healing services. Through these and more, we see that American Judaism is a dynamic cultural process very much open to change and a source of great personal and communal meaning. The ceramic “Tree of Life” spice container that appears on the cover of Inventing Jewish Ritual is by Susan Garson of Garson and Pakele Studios,
