KIRKUS REVIEW

 This nostalgic time-trip to the Brooklyn of yesteryear is full of fond and often amusing memories and a very mixed bag of mostly ethnic recipes, some of which have little to do with Brooklyn. (Just because New Jersey's Governor Florio grew up there, does his present wife's chile belong here?) But with a range from the 17th- century Dutch to the new Russian community in Brighton Beach (even the gentrifiers are represented with recipes from the Park Slope food co-op), there is something here for every cook and reader, as well as a transporting treasury of food and folklife for Brooklyn buffs--wherever they are now.
