Miriam's Kitchen A Memoir
Author: Elizabeth Ehrlich
Like many Jewish Americans, Elizabeth Ehrlich was ambivalent about her background.

A wonderful memoir of a Jewish-American woman. Explores the interplay between love, family, history and food.

Moving memoir of a woman coming to terms with her past and where she wants to go in her future, in terms of her spirituality. She is Jewish and is slowly becoming more observant. She spends time with her mother in law and learns her recipes. The recipes are included in the book and the stories behind them make them even better. She really weighs the benefits of the changes she is making in her life, especially how it will effect her children and how she wants them to grow up and carry on traditions. I found her views on what it means to be a mother to be insightful and feeling.

Beautiful book--Jewish recipes included. I love the stories and that everything , as in my home, is pretty much based in the kitchen. Life for this family was important to preserve traditions, Miriam, a Holocaust survivor has preserved these on pages for us to enjoy also. I loved this book.

Sweet book about a woman's journey into embracing religious tradition. Written at a leisurely pace; this is not a quiok read, but well worth the time invested.
