At Oma's Table

More Than 100 Recipes and Remembrances From A Jewish Family's Kitchen

Unknown - 2007
Rate this:
An intimate collection of Jewish family recipes spanning three generations.

Unlike many in her generation, Doris Schechter was lucky enough to grow up knowing one of her grandparents. Polish by birth, Leah Goldstein - or Oma, as Doris called her - was a capable, no-nonsense woman and an amazing cook. Through times of great upheaval, fleeing Vienna for Italy, before eventually coming to America, Oma's table was always plentiful, with delicious home-cooked meals that brought together Viennese, Italian, and American flavours.

Now a successful restaurateur, Doris Schechter pays homage to her brave grandmother and the food traditions she fostered with this moving and appealing collection of recipes and remembrances. With dishes including classic favourites (matzo balls, tzimmes, borscht, and a beloved spread known as liptauer) as well as more contemporary dishes, desserts, and tasting menus, At Oma's Table is a book to savour, to share with family, and to cook from-one delicious family meal at a time.
