Avid cook and first-time author, June Feiss Hersh, compiled a book of Holocaust survivors who share their cherished family recipes. Stories and dishes come from all over Europe ā€” Poland, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Russia, Ukraine and Greece. The survivors she interviewed offered such measurements as a “bisel” of sugar and an “eggshell” of matzoh meal. Suffice it to say, there was a lot of trial and error before the book went to press. And yes, all the recipes are kosher.
