NOTES : _The Jewish Holday Kitchen_, Joan Nathan. Schocken Books, New York: 1988. This delicious haroset recipe comes from the famous Luzzato family of Venice. Members of the family have lived in Italy since 1541 and probably before. names like Benedetto Luzzato, Simone Luzzato, M oses Haim Luzzato and Samuel David Luzzato were well known to Italians from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment as authors, professors and rabbis. Francis Luzzato of Washington DC works for the Peac e Corps and is a keeper of family traditions; this is his family's recipe.
