Keep 'Secrets of a Jewish Baker' better a secret ....
just received the newly publlished Secrets of a Jewish Baker  ... To make it short, this is the first book I will return to Amazon. I have no idea how this book got some awards but the 'formulas' are all measured by volume ... that's inconvenient but manageable. The real insult is that the quantity of flour in the 'formula' is specified as for example "2 1/2 to 4 cups" (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I had no idea that one would even dare to publish something like that .... how about 'some flour', 'some handful of flour' or 'have your kids scoop in whatever they like'. I guess it is obvious that this book actually upset me.
If you would like to consider buying it anyway (the cover looks good and the award must be for that), then look at it in your local bookstore first.
