B'nai Gourmet Cookbook

B’nai Havurah’s cookbook, “B’nai Gourmet: Recipes for Today, Memories of Yesterday,” is now available for purchase at the office. The cookbook, featuring more than 175 recipes contributed by B’nai Havurah families, is hardcover, spiral-bound, and features a reproduction of a painting by B’nai Havurah’s own Gail Loyd.

The cookbook was a nine-month labor of love of The Cookbook Committee, chaired by Stefanie Jacobs. In addition to gathering recipes from dozens of B’nai Havurah members, the committee solicited food-related anecdotes and stories, which are sprinkled throughout the book.

Together with standard sections such as Main Dishes and Desserts, this uniquely Reconstructionist cookbook includes a section of Passover recipes and a section called “Nosherei.” Many recipe titles have a homey flair, such as “Aunt Ruthie’s Unadulterated Brisket,” “My Mom’s Blintzes,” and “Grandma Dolly’s Apple Muffins.”

With its professional appearance and the variety of recipes and anecdotes, the cookbooks make great gifts for Jewish and non-Jewish friends. They are available at the office – 6445 East Ohio Avenue, Denver, CO 80224 - or call 303-388-4441 to order by phone.
