The subtitle of Janna Gur’s Jewish Soul Food (Schocken, $35) brings you right to the heart of what this cookbook offers: “From Minsk to Marrakesh, More Than 100 Unforgettable Dishes Updated for Today’s Kitchen.” Gur, the founder and chief editor of the leading Israeli food and wine magazine, has gathered recipes for comfort food, brings-you-right-back-to-your-childhood, finger-licking good dishes from Jewish kitchens around the world. From chopped liver and gefilte fish to lentil stew or goulash, the real thread that ties all these recipes together is their place among the “best of your grandmother’s kitchen,” all gathered together from those great home cooks around the world. Better still, Gur offers careful modern updates for novices attempting these dishes and helps guide cooks to sources of those ingredients more difficult to locate as well as their more readily available substitutes.
