"Having feasted on hundreds, maybe thousands of her meals, I am her greatest fan... Hers is the best kind of food. It's comforting, unbelievably delicious, sexy, mouth-watering, beautiful, and crowd-pleasing... I promise you're gonna love this book!"
-- From the foreword by Suzanne Somers

In The Oy of Cooking: A Grandmother's Legacy of Food and Memories, Susie Weinthal invites us into her kitchen, where she shares her most inspired recipes for the modern family. From appetizers to entrées, from savory to sweet, Susie covers all four courses, and then some, to help you create a sumptuous comfort-food family dinner or a gourmet extravaganza designed to excite the taste buds and inspire scintillating conversation at your next dinner party. Her easy-to-follow recipes include classic Jewish dishes like Matzo Ball Soup and Beef Brisket; seasonal favorites like Summer Tomato Soup and Bruschetta Antipasto; cosmopolitan fare like Lamb with Avgolemono Sauce and Szechuan Sweet and Sour Whole Fish. Susie's eclectic recipes are peppered with warm memories of family and friends, generations of inspired palates whose mealtime favorites are included in this wonderful collection: Great-Grandma Sadie's Potato Soup, Ellen's Moroccan Hot Salad and TV personality Suzanne Somers's Brie en Croûte, to name a few. The Oy of Cooking: A Grandmother's Legacy of Food and Memories offers an essential taste of modern life through generations of family and friends and the all-encompassing symbol of this shared love, as every grandmother knows: great food.
