Cookbook steeped in rich history, Brampton Guardian

Spice & Kosher - Exotic Cuisine of the Cochin Jews  By Bala Menon, Kenny Salem and Dr Essie Sassoon

ByAshley Goodfellow, Brampton GuardianOct 24, 2013
BRAMPTON— Spice &  Kosher: Exotic Cuisine of the Cochin Jews, is not your typical cookbook— but its recipe is simple.
Take one-part history, one-part tradition, one-part religion, a whole lot of food, let it simmer and serve to the masses.
It’s a book about the preservation and significance of a specific cuisine from the dying community in Cochin, India.
That’s what sparked Brampton resident Bala Menon, along with co-authors Dr. Essie Sassoon and Kenny Salem, to share the historical significance of Cochin’s cuisine. continue reading Brampton Guardian

Ever heard of ‘Cochini Jews’? No? Yet they continue to reside in the original, white-walled streets of Jew Town — even if there are just eight among them there around the synagogue today, all elderly.
And GTA residents Bala Menon and Kenny Salem — both originally hailing from Kerala in India — are determined to keep the Cochini Jews story alive.
Their quest has today resulted in a book, ‘Spice & Kosher: Exotic Cuisine of the Cochin Jews’, written jointly by Menon and Salem, along with Dr Essie Sassoon, a Cochini Jew, and today living in Ashkelon, Israel.
The book contains some 200 recipes — and, through the recipes, seeks to outline the history of the Jews of Cochin.
“It’s such an important part of India’s history and Kerala’s heritage,” says Menon. contiue reading southasianfocus.ca
