by Sybil Ruth Kaplan
by Joan Nathan
Kosher Kettle: International Adventures in Jewish Cooking is a collection of recipes from
around the world.
I met Sybil Ruth Kaplan 20 years ago in Jerusalem while she was writing her first
cookbook, Wonder of a Wonder Pot. A "wonder pot" was a marvelous invention created
in Israel to help cooks with baking before they had ovens. Like her inventiveness with the
wonder pot, Sybil has done it again, this time compiling her own kosher recipes with
those of over 75 contributors.
In addition, I was delighted to see that she has included so many of Dalia Carmel's kosher
recipes. Dalia, a food hobbyist, has been an invaluable help to food writers like myself
throughout the years.
