FOOD, FAMILY AND TRADITION: Hungarian Kosher Family Recipes and Remembrances (The Cherry Press/August 2014; Hardcover/$35.00) by Lynn Kirsche Shapiro, a daughter of Holocaust survivors, contains more than 150 original, never-before-published recipes with full-color photographs and preparation methods updated for the modern kitchen. Through telling the story of her father and mother, Sandor and Margit Kirsche (founders of Hungarian Kosher Foods, the largest all-kosher supermarket in the Midwest), and presenting their original family recipes, the voice of one family becomes the voice the many who lived in that time and place. And their survival becomes a testament to the courage and resilience of all survivors who had the courage and strength to rebuild their lives.
