Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health, New York University, author of best-selling What to Eat said of Storied Dishes,:

Linda Berzok takes readers on a fascinating journey through the multicultural world of family recipes.  I can’t think of another book that takes family recipes more seriously or is more welcome.
