Lovers of history and food will find Jewish Flavours of Italy: A Family Cookbook well-written and fascinating, and will not only want to cook dozens of the recipes, but also curl up in a corner and enjoy. The beginning of the cookbook outlines the history of the Jews in Italy, as well as keeping kosher. There are also chapters on ingredients, cooking equipment, and other helpful information. Once readers are versed on the histor and basics, they will want to go on to the amazing recipes, which are absolutely mouthwatering. There are so many excellent recipes, that many cooks will want to make something every day for a month or so from this cookbook. These are recipes that nobody will ever get tired of.

The recipes are concise, simply written, and easy-to-follow. Cooks with skills from beginner to advanced will easily be able to follow the recipes and turn out picture-perfect results. The photographs are beautiful, and almost every recipe is pictured. There are also beautiful photographs of Italy and the historical aspect of Italy and how the author’s family survived through history. The recipes are for dishes that most of us will actually want to cook and serve; none of those recipes that look nice, but aren’t doable. Most of the ingredients are easily found in any major grocery store, and many are already on anyone’s well-stocked pantry shelves.

All told, this is an excellent and beautiful cookbook. It should be on the cookbook shelf of anyone serious about delicious Italian cooking.
