"Recipes of My 15 Grandmothers is a collection of recipes and stories from the times of the Crypto-Jews – who were hiding and pretending to be Catholic during the Spanish Inquisition while practicing their Judaism underground – through the present. The grandmothers of the family devised clever ways to disguise the fact that they were still keeping kosher while appearing to be eating pork. Until modern times, the family pretended to be devout Catholics, yet passed many of the Jewish customs on, sometimes in the form of these recipes, their true legacy. For several hundred years they hid their fasts and celebration of Jewish holidays, revealing them only via their recipes and some kosher kitchen customs. This collection was found recently, hidden away at Genie Milgrom’s mother’s house"--back cover.
