Book Review: Just Add Love by Irris Makler
Just Add Love is a beautiful book filled with stories and recipes from Holocaust survivors.
These admirable and adorable Jewish survivors are grandmothers (and two grandfathers), and the recipes they share are the same that they carried with them in their hearts and their heads when the war ended.
For most, they had lost their entire families, their homes, and their childhoods.
So these recipes are more than just words on paper. They are memories of happier times, of sharing meals with loved ones, and a connection to their families.
All of the recipes have been made and shared with love, and the stories are both heartbreaking and inspirational.
Some of the recipes have been modified to include gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options to accommodate for different diets. All have been tested many times over, not only by the grandparents, but also in test kitchens.
The recipes include a wide range of dishes including soups, meat, fish and poultry, breads, baked goods, and sweets.
I would highly recommend this book as it has delicious recipes, and the historical side of it is very touching.
Just Add Love is available now, RRP $49.99
