The Sephardic Women's Organization of the Jersey Shore
Dedicated to Diane Azrak Massry
This is the third generation in the Deal Delights family of cookbooks. The previous two publications by the Sephardic Women's Organization of the Jersey Shore, Deal Delights (1976) and Deal Delights II (1985), featured recipes from scores of proficient cooks in the Syrian-Jewish community of Deal (N.J.) and Brooklyn, whose origin harks back to the ancient and thriving city of Aleppo, a formerly cosmopolitan trading center situated amid the plains of Northern Syria. Dating back countless centuries, this community is renowned for their unadulterated traditions and peerless cuisine, both of which derive a pure connection to Jewish cultural practices as they existed in the days of antiquity.
In Deal Delights Classics you will encounter over 300 recipes that have been culled from a collection of nearly 1,000 gathered over the past 25 years. In this edition, our favorite dishes have been refined and updated, representing some of the finest examples of contemporary kosher cuisine. Many of the recipes in this book are inspired by the Aleppian Jewish community's culinary link to the Mediterranean , emphasizing the healthful grains, vegetables, olive oil, herbs, and spices that characterize that bountiful region.
Some of these dishes are fairly simple to prepare, perfect for everyday meals, while others are more sophisticated and thus more appropriate for special occasions. In either case, we hope you enjoy sharing these wonderful dishes with those you love for many years to come.
