Here's what people are saying
about Tinky Weisblat
Tinky is in the March-April 2009 issue of Yankee magazine! Edie Clark's interview covers the pudding contest, the cookbook, and more. We could quote from it, but we'd rather you read it yourself. Here's the link.
From a review by Jeff Cummins in the Maplewood-South Orange (New Jersey) News Record, 4 November 2004:
The bottom line is that Weisblat knows just how to convey home and family to anyone, regardless of whether they live in Elizabeth, Clark, Maplewood, Peoria, Ill., or Los Angeles.
From a cookbook round up by Robert Rastelli in the Star Ledger, 15 September 2004:
This is one cute book with some wonderful drawings and paintings, as well as friendly food with a friendly touch.... With illustrations by the late Massachusetts painter Judith Russell, this little book can make a wonderful gift or become a source of peace in anyone's kitchen, especially those in need of a break from today's breakneck pace.
From a review by Marylou Morano in the Westfield Leader, 28 October 2004:
"The Pudding Hollow Cookbook" is a wonderful addition to any cook's library.... When you've turned the last page, you'll feel as though you have an entire new set of friends and neighbors.
From Claire Hopley's "Table Talk" in the Amherst Bulletin, July 2, 2004:
"The Pudding Hollow Cookbook," just published by the Merry Lion Press of Hawley, must be one of the prettiest cookbooks ever.
From a Booklist (May 15, 2004) preview of The Pudding Hollow Cookbook, by Stephanie Zvirin:
The straightforward, almost casual instructions will be easy to follow, and Weisblat's generous chapter introductions give a strong sense of a close-knit community whose members continue to be drawn together by a love of good food.
A recent profile in the Greenfield Recorder ("She Does It All," by Virginia Ray, Thursday, April 29, 2004) calls Tinky Weisblat...
"West county's best known Renaissance woman" and predicts that this "pint-sized powerhouse" will soon "take the publishing world by storm."
From Food History News, Editor's Notebook, June 15, 2004:
Bookstores love the cookbook, too! Here's what Jennifer Malinowski of Schuler Books & Music in Okemos Michigan wrote:
