This exciting collection of nostalgic stories is written by the master of them all, Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. These poignant tales bring back memories of what it was like in the European shtetl over 100 years ago. They evoke a yearning for the warmth and simplicity of a lifestyle that we recall with deep emotion.
Rabbi Twerski, with his inimitable ability to tug at our heartstrings, envisioned a book that was truly A Taste of Nostalgia. In keeping with this ideal, he has provided us with the authentic flavor of the Alte Heim, depicting all the landmarks of the Jewish year, beginning with Shabbos and including all Yamim Tovim and special occasions.
To complement this spiritual treat, Judi Dick, who is not only a highly regarded editor but also an exemplary wife and mother, has utilized her culinary expertise to recreate the heimishe kitchen of long ago. More than 150 traditional recipes, masterfully adapted for today's balabuste, and including an extensive selection of Shabbos recipes, an expanded Pesach section, time-honored delicacies, and mouthwatering treats for the Yamim Tovim and special occasions, bring back the world of the shtetl.
So immerse yourself in the wonderful tales and tastes of yesteryear. You will find yourself reminiscing about the way your grandmother, mother, aunt, or close neighbor made these delicacies - and now you too can fill your home with A Taste of Nostalgia.
