"Londoners Fine and Tarn—self-styled as the Jewish Princesses—collaborate on a 100-recipe kosher collection, complete with riffs on tradition and no small number of jokes and Yiddish-isms. . . . Great tips and creative makeovers of recipes, from must-have gadgets and how to set the table to newer versions of gefilte fish, chicken soup, and borscht (respectively, gefilte frishen; red cabbage, beet, and apple borscht; and Sephardic saffron chicken soup with fragrant matzo balls). Narratives are witty and personal, intended for easy browsing. . . . This is an entertaining, easy segue into new traditions."
"With tongues firmly in their cheeks, Fine and Tarn serve up Princess Pearls of wisdom as their alter egos, the Jewish Princesses. Recipes, with intros that will bring a smile to your face, give a tasty twist on Jewish classics, fusing trends with tradition and inventing their own new ones like Cohen-tucky baked chicken. A useful addition to your kitchen library."
