first generation of Jews from Eastern Europe brought with them their
candlesticks and their traditional old-world recipes. The next generation
learned from their mothers how to make hearty, inexpensive American
versions of old favorites like chicken fricassee and chicken soup
with noodles. And what about the next generation, the baby boomers?
Would they, Joan wonders, keep those favorite recipes going? The
answer, happily, seems to be yes. New York Times columnist and best-selling
cookbook author, Mark Bittman demonstrates his ways with chicken
fricassee. Then Debbie Klatskin brings chicken soup and homemade
noodle-making all the way into the 21st century.
