Description: As a young child, Viviane Miner spent many cherished hours in her grandmother's kitchen, absorbing the lively and creative approach to cooking that has been central to her family's way of life for generations. In From My Grandmother's Kitchen, she shares her rich and diverse culinary heritage -- a cuisine that has evolved over centuries of migration by the Sephardic Jews.
This personal collection of family recipes is Balkan Sephardic -- an exotic blend of Turkish, Greek, Romanian, and Bulgarian cuisines, with an underlying Spanish influence. The dishes themselves are as fascinating as their names: cheese filled Bulemas, Pastel Berenjena (eggplant pie), Bourekitas Espinaca, (spinach turnovers), Reyenados Stuffed Vegetables, Albondigas Vinaigra (Turkish sour meat balls), Bulgarian Filled Bread, Canella, Halvah, Baklava, Melon Cream and Anise Biscotchos.
The author introduces her recipes with warm and delightful memories of growing up in Geneva, Switzerland, and with family photographs that conjure up images of a bygone era -- of tradition, of ceremony, and of a large, gregarious family with close ties to one another and to their past.
