Just got my copy of ITJB!

Inside the Jewish Bakery is a beautiful book! Stan and Norm this is a wonderful piece of work. The photos are beautiful and the desserts -- oh my, I don't know where to begin. I will start with almond paste and go from there and it looks like I will need to buy some more eggs. I can't wait to start on some cookies and cakes! I also enjoyed your historical perspectives -- really well done.

I found your website after receiving the book. Had I known, I would have ordered the autographed version. Now my to bake list has truly gone off the charts.

Great book! Thanks for sharing! Brian

You will love this book.  Not only for the items you will bake out of the recipes but for the history it contains as you mentioned above.

Be sure to give their Jewish Deli Rye loaf a try.  It is a wonderful bread.

Enjoy,

Janet

We baked our way through the whole book... loved it all... every recipe we made... except the Honey Cake... for some reason although other's loved it... it didn't appeal... the book is very well done... Glad you have it.

Happy ITJBing,

Diane

The honey cake and the apple cake were the best tasting of all the desserts. For shame! Go back and make it until you get it right. :-D

To be honest, I didn't expect the honey cake to turn out as well as it did; the all white rye part threw me. But, boy was it good.

cheers,

gary

Made the almond paste yesterday, so first up will be the almond horns. There are so many good recipes, this book will keep me busy for the winter and into the spring! I am looking forward to some great eating! Regards, Brian

for the almond paste...EVERYTHING is good with that... and the homemade is soooo much better than what you can buy commercially... LOVE IT... I love the Babka with the almond paste filling... and,.. so many more.
