…among Jewish connoisseurs of fine cooking, Spice and Spirit is a real find. Not merely an excellent cookbook, it's a kosher kitchen bible, a fine read on Jewish culture and traditions, Jewish law and customs.

- Joan Swart Michel, Hadassah Magazine
I still have my original 1977 copy that my mother gave me when I started to keep kosher. The jacket's long since torn off, but it's as useful as ever. Everything is simple and delicious. I think if I could only keep one cookbook, this would be it!

- Customer, Amazon.com
More than a collection of recipes, Spice and Spirit provides detailed instructions for observing…kosher rules…Definitions of what makes food kosher…and explains the spiritual inspiration of each law.
