Sarina’s Sephardic Cuisine Intro


Sarina’s Sephardic Cuisine is
dedicated to two very special people dedicated to my Grandmother Esther, or Estrena, Cohen Salem. my grandmother came to this country and
she did not know how to read or write her skill was her cooking. and she earned a living from her cooking. Her and my grandfather opened a backyard kitchen in their house, in the garage of there house. They converted that kitchen to a commercial kitchen. and from there they were able to cater
all kinds of foods but because my grandmother didn’t read
or write she didn’t have any recipes written. She was a true cook. She cooked from taste and feel and smell and approximation. My mother, when she got married to my father, who at this time of the World War II Vet when they got married in 1944 my mother wanted to write down the recipes from my grandmother. So she would go into my grandmother’s
kitchen and she would sit there as my
grandmother was preparing recipes she would stop my grandmother and measure each thing. When I got married thirty years later, I had from
my mother the ingredients but no directions. So that was really kind of funny. What I did was I sat down and I wrote
the directions out for each of the recipes from my grandmother and for my mother and I sat there and I wrote them I entered them in and that is the genesis of Sarina’s Sephardic Cuisine. and i want to share those recipes with
my family with my community my cousins my daughter and my granddaughters, because carrying on your culture is very very important. It’s the way that you carry on, who you are and know where you come from to know where you’re going. Your roots, your culture, who you are
your ethnicity it all comes from your ancestors My ancestors my mom and my grandmother those are the two people that I dedicate this cookbook app to Sarina’s Sephardic Cuisine
