(and the almost legendary talents
of Jewish cooks) have become as

In the Downriver area, where
the Jewish population is relatively

compiled, edited and illustrated
an anthology of their own recipes.

effort, entitled "So? What's Cook-

cookbook, however. It contains a
description of each of the major
Jewish festivals, explaining cus-
toms and ceremonies, and includes
suggestions for appropriate dishes
to be served during each such
