Item Description...
One part Tuesdays with Morrie, one part Like Water for Chocolate, Nana Lena's Kitchen by Amy Ostrower is an inspirational collection of stories and recipes from a Southern Jewish kitchen. These recipes read almost like folk tales, fables from a mythic past handed down generation to generation with love. As an extended family of sisters, daughters and granddaughters gather to make a Passover meal or prepare the Shivah table, Nana Lena's recipes are dispensed with an equal measure of wisdom - about life and death, courage and responsibility, family and faith. We see the spirited Lena grow in these pages from a young girl and impetu-ous bride to a loving mother and grandmother. Her story mirrors the larg-er currents of her times. The daughter of immigrants, Lena Goodman was born on the Fourth of July, 1912 in Berkley, Virginia. During her lifetime she saw the Flu Epidemic of 1918, the Great Depression, the Second World War, the invention of indoor plumbing -- even a Jewish boy named Sandy Koufax play Major League Baseball. She continues to live on in these sto-ries, fondly remembered by her granddaughter Amy, who is a screenwriter living in Los Angeles. Nana Lena's Kitchen is a gem -- and a perfect gift for mothers, daughters, bubbies and best friends. "Nana Lena's Kitchen warms your heart. In an age of indifference here is a woman, her stories and recipes deliciously remembered, who reminds you of the beauty of the human heart. Pull up a chair and have a nosh." --Jan Goldstein, Author of All That Matters "Here are charm and wisdom, served with love." --Amy Hill Hearth, Co-Author of Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years

Reviews - What do our customers think?
lena as i knew her  Jan 10, 2006
grandchildren have a tendency to overstate the attributes of grandparents and to believe others will agree..lena herzberg was all of this and more..she was a leader of women, had the respect of men, told a story beyond compare and was a compendium of knowledge of her era, place and time. she was my last link to old Berkeley and my bubbie Mrs. Fox is the friend of her mother's that she refers to. The story of the shroud was told to me by Chaia Fox herself and brought tears of laughter at the memory of it. amy ostrower has honored the woman who had such impact on the community in which she lived. Thanks for the memories.
Incredible Latke recipe  Dec 20, 2005
This book is one of the cutest and most helpful books on the topic of Jewish cooking I have ever read. My strudel is always a disaster, but after following her recipe, it finally turned out right.....after 20 years. The latke recipe was helpful as well. It's just an overall happy, fun book.
Comfort Food & Memories  Dec 12, 2005
I wish there were more books like this one. Most cookbooks offer only a list of ingredients. Ms. Ostrower's collection offers more than just incredible recipes. We get great stories and anecdotes for each dish that, not only keeps Nana's memories alive, but reminds us of our own experiences in the kitchen watching our mothers and grandmothers cook for the family. This is a perfect gift at any time but especially for the holidays of any ethnicity and faith.

A Must Read  Dec 11, 2005
From the moment I picked up the book, I knew this book had found me. Such a tender and loving memoire of the life of Nana Lena. I'll definitely buy this for all my friends.
