“Over the last four decades, Joan has become the most important preservationist of Jewish food traditions, researching and honoring the rich heritage that has connected people for millennia. I still marvel at her devotion...” — Alice Waters
“…Nathan deftly weaves together small personal stories with great historical narratives whilst always making sure our appetites.
