This cookbook is written especially for children and offers more than recipes. Instructions on how to prepare Kosher snacks and meals are incorporated into a story about Hannah and Hershel, twins who sail up the Mississippi River with their grandmother.
Starting in New Orleans, the children visit Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Natchez and Vicksburg, Mississippi; Little Rock, Arkansas; Memphis, Tennessee; and Hannibal, Missouri. At each stop they go exploring and learn about the history of the town. When they get back on the Simcha Ship, Chef Lazér teaches them how to make treats with themes that relate to the city they just saw.
Twenty-three recipes are included, ranging from Capitol Chicken to Natchez Nosh to Graceland Green Bean Casserole. Each recipe is rated according to difficulty and includes a list of kitchen utensils needed.
The book also includes a list of measurement abbreviations and a table of metric conversions. Symbols at the beginning of each recipe indicate whether children need assistance in preparing the dish and whether the dish is dairy, meat, or pareve.
About the Authors
Mildred Covert learned the art of cooking at her grandmother’s knee. Because of her own strong ethnic background and her love of her native New Orleans, she began to experiment with the best of both worlds. As a wife, mother, and career woman, Sylvia Gerson always found time to involve herself with her synagogue and community. They are also the authors of Kosher Cajun Cookbook, Kosher Southern-Style Cookbook, and Kosher Creole Cookbook, all published by Pelican.
