“This is a highly recommended book, particularly for its exceptional use of professional baking knowledge for home baking.” – Israeli chef Israel Aharoni

“I believe that anyone who receives this book as a holiday gift won’t stop smiling and will be left with a sweet flavor to last for the entire year.” – Saloona 

“TV host and self-taught baker Goren’s first cookbook, Sweet Secrets, sold more than 130,000 copies in Israel. Her fourth cookbook, originally published in 2013 and now translated into English, distills “thousands of grandma’s recipes” into a charming collection of nostalgic desserts. Recipes such as biscuit cake with a strawberry heart, swan cream puffs, gorgeous chocolate-mocha roulade, and super soft hamantaschen have been adapted for modern kitchens and read more classy than kitsch. They’re accompanied by “Grandma Knows Best” sidebars offering technical tips, recipe variations, and friendly commentary. Holiday treats get their own chapter, as do a unique selection of candies and confections.” – Library Journal

“All the recipes are precise, tested and explained in clear terms… All you need is to go into your kitchen, recreate the traditional flavors and come out with results which would impress even your grandmother.” –
