Noted Nutritionist-Dietician Guides
Cooks in New Passover Cookbook

Deborah Ross is the pen-
name of the author of the
"Manischewitz Passover
Cookbook" (Jonathan
David Co.), the contents of
which are certain to inspire
the housewife using it dur-
ing the approaching Pas-
sover festival.
Deborah Ross is the name
that was adopted for her
role when she became direc-
tor of home economics for
the B. Manischewitz Co.
That is why the cookbook
she compiled is called the
Manischewitz cookbook.
A lecturer on food needs,
she is an expert dietitian
and nutritionist, a graduate
of Pratt Institute who also
studied at Columbia Uni-
versity.
Soups, meat, poultry,
fried foods, salads and re-
lishes, baked goods,
sweets are all included in
the 180-page book which
includes a lengthy intro-
duction.
"Jewish Cookery as It Re-
flects Jewish Life" is the
title of the introductory es-
say, and that explains the
guidance offered the
housewife by an expert in
the preparation- of the Pas-
sover foods.
It is a genuinely instruc-
tive work, providing defini-
tions for the kashrut regu-
lations, explaining the
methods for preparing food,
sharing the knowledge of an
expert dietitian and nut-
rionist with the cooks who
are guided with utter skill
toward preparing foods and
delicacies.
There is humor in the au-
thor's approach to every
morsel of Passover foods the
preparation of which she
guides excellently. Com-
mencing the chapter on ap-
petizers and soups, to quote
and example of Deborah
Ross' labors, she addresses
the housewife as follows:
"Who ever heard of a
canape or hors d'oeuvre
for Passover? Why not?
All right, so matza
doesn't break evenly.
People make allowances
on Pesach.
"In the days when the
rotund figure was an object
of envy and admiration, ap-
petizers made much more
sense than they do today.
Their purpose is to awaken
the taste buds and prepare
them for the gustatory sen-
sations to follow.
"In your selections, re-
member the purpose of this
course, and serve it as at-
Tactively as you\can. There
a few things as repulsive
as a soggy canape. To avoid
this catastrophe, do not
spread the pieces of matza
or fill the hors d'oeuvre
puffs until the last possible
moment.
"In fact, it is better to put
out bowls of spreads and
trays of matzot and let the
guests help themselves.
Why should you do all the
work?"
The many scores of re-
cipes in "The Manischewitz
Passover Cookbook" are the
best explanations of the
value of this cookbook. Here

are some samples of
Ross offerings:

Troop Classes

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
General Avi Zohar, chief
education officer for the Is-
rael Defense Forces, an-
nounced last week that
every Israeli soldier will
now receive at least one
week of non-military gen-
eral education classes and
some 10,000 soldiers will
receive between three
months and a year of gen-
eral studies.
General Zohar said
soldiers who receive educa-
tional opportunities are far
less likely to desert or wind
up in - prison and are more
likely to serve successfully
in field units.
