If you love Jewish food, as well as Hungarian food, you’ll want to pick up an excellent cookbook, Second Generation: Hungarian and Jewish Classics Reimagined for the Modern Table, by Jeremy Salamon, award winning chef and restaurateur, and Casey Elsas, a celebrated recipe developer. This cookbook is full of mouthwatering recipes that are passed down from generations, but modernized for cooks today. Many of the recipes included in this cookbook are traditional foods, but others are unique and new. Salamon has included stores of his childhood and how he learned to cook at the feet of his two grandmothers. The book is fun to read, and is well-written; it will keep readers interested in the stories, but also make readers very hungry and make them want to get into the kitchen and cook something amazing.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions that make it easy for everyone – beginning to advanced cooks – to follow. And there are gorgeous, professional photographs of most of the dishes.

All told, this is one of those cookbooks that is well worth adding to any cookbook collection. It has enough good dishes to keep readers cooking for months. The recipes are definitely appealing and yummy.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
