The Art of Jewish Cooking. With an introduction by Paul Grossinger.

New York: Random House, 1958.

Octavo (21 x 15 cm.), xiii, [3],[229 pages. Index. Illustrated. FIRST EDITION. Over three hundred recipes and menus for Jewish-style cooking, perfected for your enjoyment by the famed hostess of the Catskill resort. Grossinger and her husband Paul emigrated to the U.S. from Austria, and soon opened a small boarding house in the Catskill Mountains of New York State in 1914. The recipes are drawn from around Eastern Europe and the Netherlands. The audience for the book is clearly a broader American audience becoming familiar with Jewish cooking and culture (in part through institutions like the Grossinger's resort), and simple explanations of Jewish Holidays, and uses of various types of fat to keep Kosher or not, are included. Some light soiling throughout; corners a bit bumped. Still near very good. In a slightly soiled, unclipped dust jacket. With the bookseller ticket of "Villagra Book Shop, Santa Fe, N.M." Overall, very near very good.

Price: $75.00
