Alegria tells the story of one family’s culinary journey through the decades and across continents. It forms one of the many threads of Jewish history, marked by migration and dispersion. Karen Liberman traces the stories and cooking traditions of her Sephardi and Ashkenazi ancestors starting with her great-grandparents in Morocco, Russia and Poland. In Karen’s family, as in many Jewish families, preparing meals plays an important part in preserving identity and memories of a past life. Each chapter in this book honours and celebrates her family’s journey and the treasured recipes collected along the way.
