Love and Knishes: An Irrepressible Guide to Jewish Cooking, by Sara Kasdan.  Published by The Vanguard Press, New York, in 1956.  First edition, fourth printing.  Hard cover. 191 pages.  Excellent vintage condition.  A fragment of a dust jacket is now protected by Mylar. This is a very funny cookbook, with each chapter beginning with little stories.  The recipes include lengthy descriptions, if necessary.  The Yiddish names and terms are included.  Unless your grandmother is a Jewish cook, you may need a dictionary!  Grebenes?  Schmaltz?
