A number of years ago, I had the chutzpah to to write a Jewish cookbook. Why do I say chutzpah? What made me think I could tell you how to cook Jewish dishes? Was I born knowing how to cook these delicacies? Did I learn from my mother? The answer is no but also yes. No, I didn’t learn to cook them, but yes, I learned how to eat them. I learned how they should taste, so that when the time came that I wanted to learn how to cook, the memeory of the taste, the flavor, the aroma stayed with me. I gathered recipes; I tested them. When they tasted like my memories I put them into a book . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
