Molly Goldberg Cookbook -  Co-written with cookbook author Myra Waldo, the "Molly Goldberg Cookbook"  (Doubleday, 1955, 320 pgs.) celebrates the food, recipes and Jewish heritage of actress Gertrude Berg.

The Molly Goldberg Cookbook

Gertrude Berg, a 'famous' radio and television star of the 1950's, played Molly Goldberg,  a gossipy Jewish-American housewife who like to chat with her neighbors through her kitchen window at a walk-up brownstone apartment (#3-B) at 1030 East Tremont Avenue in the Bronx, New York City in the sitcom THE GOLDBERGS/CBS/NBC/DUM/SYN/1949-56.

The cookbook includes many traditional Jewish recipes - chicken soup, blintzes, bagels, meatballs, sauerkraut, challah, kolatchen as well as Goldberg's specialties like Blintzes with Apple Filling, Cabbage Strudel, Baked Fish Dumplings, My Favorite French Toast and more.

"A lavish treasury of Jewish cooking - hundreds of world famous recipes, including appetizers, soups, meats, fish, desserts and holiday treats.. Everything your heart desires from bagels and lox to kasha and blinis - so delicious yet so easy to prepare!"

The book was later released as "The Molly Goldberg Jewish Cookbook" (Ivyland Books, 1999) with line-drawings by Susanne Suba (which appeared in the original edition).
