How did you test so many recipes?
I had a lot of help! Some recipes, like the Lung and Liver Kugel, for example, were added for sentimental value only, because you couldn't buy lung now if you wanted to. (Can you believe anyone actually once wanted to?) One cake I had to test four times to get it right. You might be thinking, why didn't you just leave that cake out? Well, with a name like "Tanta Esther Gittel's Husband's Second Wife Lena's Nut Cake," that one was going in!
