You never know what kind for a treasure trove you would find in the clearance shelves at Politics and Prose. Yesterday it was Classic Italian Jewish Cooking, by Edda Servi Machlin, a collection of traditional recipes and menus. I was mostly curious about section on her people’s traditional bread, but as I perused the book I became fascinated with the author’s story. Writing her cookbooks, she practically salvaged the recipes of her ancient Italian Jewish heritage, who would have disappeared into the abyss of ancient cultures lost due to ravages of war.
