Written in the language understood by the majority of newly arriving
Jewish immigrants, this cookbook served as an introduction to American
as well as traditional Jewish cuisine. The recipes encompass Amchanitzki's

In her introduction, the author promises that using her recipes
will prevent stomachaches and other food-related maladies in children.
