Brattleboro Area Jewish Community releases commnity cookbook

BRATTLEBORO - The Brattleboro Area Jewish Community, Congregation Shir HeHarim, announces the release of their community cookbook, titled “Song of the Mountains, Vol. 2, Favorite Family Recipes, Past & Present.” The theme is about family and the memories which are brought to mind by the foods that were shared at holidays, special occasions, and everyday meals.
Spearheaded by the fundraising committee - Deb Schiller, Susan Auslander, and Stephan Brandstatter - this project, a year in the making, is the cumulative result of many members, relatives, and friends. Inside there are 100 recipes, some with narratives; and  illustrations by Dr. Stuart Copans for various appetizers, soups, salads, beef, chicken, fish entrees, side dishes, breads and rolls, and desserts. Some recipes are of Sephardic, Eastern European or Middle Eastern origin; some are even suitable for specific holidays. Also included are gluten-free recipes.
The cookbook retails for $25 but BAJC  is offering a prepublication price - $22.50 for one book, $42 for two, and $18 for each additional book - until Friday, March 25.
