This May will mark 10 years since the release of my first, Recipes Remembered, a Celebration of Survival, Ruder Finn (May 2011). I interviewed over 150 Holocaust survivors and retold their stories and recreated their cherished recipes. Now in its sixth printing, we have sold over 20,000 copies with all proceeds benefitting the Museum of Jewish Heritage and Holocaust-related institutions and organizations. In connection with Recipes Remembered, my husband and I traveled across the country and hosted 100s of book talks. Most recently, during this crazy year, I have zoomed with many groups and am never tired of sharing the life-affirming stories and mouth-watering recipes contained in this compendium. Your order of Recipes Remembered, supports future reprints of this evergreen book. All orders ship within 48 hours
On the heels of Recipes Remembered, I wrote The Kosher Carnivore, St. Marten's Press (September 2011), a primer on how to buy and cook kosher meat and poultry. The book was filled with great tips and techniques and lots of wonderful pareve side dishes.
In 2013, I interviewed over 150 survivors and liberators for Still Here, Inspiration from Survivors & Liberators of the Holocaust. The compendium of photographs and quotes illustrate the resilience and insights of these two remarkable communities. We released the book at a gala held at New York's Jewish Museum with UJA's Self Help being the beneficiary of proceeds from the sale of the book. The late Eli Wiesel graces our cover, in what was to be his final formal portrait session. Copies can be purchased online at www.stillherebook.com
I hope you will look for me on Facebook and Instagram and find my articles on sites such as The Nosher and in publications like Westchester Magazine, for which I am a contributing writer. I guess you can say I've arrived as I am now listed on Wikipedia!
