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.
