For Lora Brody this fragrance doesnt simply register in the present.

IT flings open the doors of yesterdays, when other stews bubbled and other kitchens smelled as welcoming. It stirs a string of memories, of smells and tastes, of places far away, of home and of childhood.In Cooking with Memories the spark of memory kindled by wonderful food illuminates long-forgotten family episodes- funny, poignant, tender, and treasured.

Twenty-one stories, supplemented by over 100 recipes, recall the times and flavors of Loras life: from her mothers chicken soup to Aunt Bessies babka, served after sundown on Yom Kippur- from potatoes baked in a winters fire to picnic baskets at the beach in August- from get-well food for a sick child (challa, broth and sweet custard) to holiday fare of salmon salad, roast turkey, and mile-high Nesselrode pie.Loras recipes and recollections transport the reader from Hartford, Connecticut, where she grew up in the 1950s, to present-day Chicago, where she judges the entries in a Velveeta Cook-Off.

She travels to northernmost Vermont for a memorable weekend of food and fun with an upcountry New England family. She celebrates holidays with unforgettable meals, recounting Passover at home, Christmas at a friends, a sons birthday, anothers bris, a week of sitting shivah for a departed relative, and other times both sweet and sad.Collected here are special memories, sprinkled with much-beloved recipes from days gone by.

With a liberal dash of humor, a dollop of nostalgia, and a generous seasoning of wit, Lora Brody serves them up to her family, her friends, and to you.
