Jew-ish: A Cookbook: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch

Jew-ish: A Cookbook: Reinvented Recipes from a Modern Mensch

By:  Jake Cohen

Also available in:
100 updated classic and all-new Jewish-style recipes from a bright new star in the food community

These are not your Jewish grandmother's recipes! Jake Cohen, food writer and nice Jewish boy, has been hosting Friday night Shabbat dinners for the past few years and reinventing beloved (but sometimes outdated) recipes from his culture along the way. The result is Jew-ish, an innovative take on classic Jewish recipes that was created with the modern millennial in mind: both experienced and novice home cooks looking for elevated versions of old-school favorites. Imagine kugel turned savory with the flavors of spinach-artichoke dip and latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, plus best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! Cooks and hosts will find helpful tips and tricks throughout, gleaned from personal stories told in a fresh voice that is uniquely Jake Cohen’s.

    “Jake Cohen is the creative, youthful future of Jewish food.   There is a thrill in reading and cooking from a book by someone you can hardly keep up with – he is SO alive, as is his food!” 

    – Joan Nathan, James Beard Award-winning author, most recently of King Solomon’s Table

With his deft, doable, delicious takes on Jewish classics, combined with a genuine talent for contextualizing his culture into something we can all learn from, you certainly don’t have to be Jewish to love Jew-ish.”

And, well, this book does exactly that! Jew-ish is packed with the kind of bright flavors that will make any meal a party.”
