Winner gets a free Nextbook Press book appropriate to his or her comment (if he or she emails me at mtracy@tabletmag.com with his or her mailing address).

This week’s winner is Scott Morris, who implored Stacey Hardwood, who had written about her grandmother’s delicious poppy-seed cookies, “So, please save the rest of us the aggravation and time of trying various recipes, and share the one that you got to work. Lest, you become the grandmother who took her recipe to the grave.”

Here it is, Scott! And here, also, for you is a copy of Nextbook Press’ Sacred Trash, which is about the Cairo Geniza, a miraculous instance of Jewish insight rescued from the grave.
