    This book describes both familiar and unfamiliar foods, and each one is preceded by a brief article a few surprisingly vulgar , and an occasional recipe I was very surprised that the apple cake recipe had both butter and sour cream, since every recipe I ve seen uses the traditional orange juice and ...

    The most beautiful book I ve read in a long time I loved the aesthetic and the artwork, but I love how much effort was put into this book You can feel it as you read I remembered so many things my Grandma cooking with me watching completely in the way , me sneaking gefilte fish onto my cousin s plate so I wouldn t have to eat it, Aunt Ruth bringing bag loads of bread from ...

    This fun, funny, nostalgic sort of cookbook was just too much to resist when I saw it pass through our library The photos on the cover alone made me hungry While I m not Jewish, I ve had close friends of varying degrees of observance mostly Ashkenazim , and uniformly their food was terrific Remembering pastries like babka and black and whites and Shabbat challah and dishes like freshly made gefilte fish, Shabbat cholent, and matza ball soup, or even ready to eat foods like pickled herring, whitefish salad, or bagels with cream cheese and lox makes my mouth water While I now live far away from those friends, and their delicious food, I retain the fondest of memories of our times together So this book was like a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, sometimes snarky walk through my memories With lots of detours to fascinating dishes I ve never tried, from all over the Jewish diaspora Short essays on the food item in question are often paired with a recipe for the item as well, along with food photography, and sometimes little cartoons and side bars on related topics Not all foods featured are strictly food or have a recipe ex leftovers, reused tea bags, kosher salt, et...

    I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review From the publisher, as I do not regurgitate the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it.Tablet s list of the 100 most Jewish foods is not about the most popular Jewish foods, or the tastiest, or even the most enduring It s a list of the most significant foods culturally and historically to the Jewish people, explored deeply with essays, recipes, stories, and context Some of the dishes are no longer cooked at home, and some are not even dishes in the traditional sense store bought cereal and Stella D oro cookies, for example The entire list is up for debate, which is what makes this book so much fun Many of the foods are delicious such as babka and shakshuka Others make us wonder how they ve survived as long as they have such as unhatched chicken eggs and jellied calves feet As expected, many Jewish and now universal favourites like matzo balls, pickles, cheesecake, blintzes, and chopped liver make the list The recipes are global and represent all contingencies of the Jewish experience Contributors include Ruth Reichl, ric Ripert, Joan Nathan, Michael Solomonov, Dan Barber, Gail Simmons, Yotam Ottolenghi, Tom Colicchio, Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, Maira Kalman, Action Bronson, Daphne Merkin, Shalom Ausl...

    Perfect timing today for Sam Sifton to mention this book in his New York Times Recipes for Now newsletter Why Passover is coming and I spent hours yesterday in search of a suitable kugel Why, you ask That Manischewitz Egg Noodles for Passover have disappeared, my daughter won t eat onions, and isn t a fan of cottage cheese either I know, right Some research reveals the Gluten Free Manischewitz noodles we saw this weekend, made with potato, are probably the same noodles we grew up with, only repackaged, but we only saw thin noodles and most kugels have wide noodles Today I discovered, in one of this book s recipes, a timbale like caramelized kugel that could be Passover adapted, and it uses thin noodles It s both sweet and black peppery, but the manner in which it is made might result in a dish gone horribly awry I don t want to risk ruining the meal because the meal is all we do My daughter s husband was never Jewish and my daughter and I aren t Jewish any So with three atheists, we observe Passover differently Yes, except for my husband, we are cultural Jews.I digress This is less a book review than a report on my kugel progress The notion of a sweet kugel really does not appeal, but unless you go sweet which also includes lots of full fat dairy, butter and eggs onions are likely the star So, no to most Farfel Kugels and Potato Kugels How can a foodie like my daughter not eat onions Well, I don t eat mushrooms, so I ...

    I don t normally read cookbooks I love food and books about food but don t typically gain much from pouring over cookbooks This book has recipes in it and by some measure it is definitely a cookbook But by other measures it is definitely not a cookbook And the not a cookbook part is full of fun history and essays and stories about food that made a great read The chulent essay had me laughing out loud literally.I learned just enough ...

    The 100 Most Jewish Foods A Highly Debatable List by Alana Newhouse et al is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early March.Alphabetical, quaint informational entries on Jewish foods with cute sketches and one recipe per entry except for commercial items, like margarine, bazooka bubble gum or Hydrox, or symbolic eats, like Chinese food or used tea bags or leftovers, or things that don t require preparation, like dates or kosher s...

    This book is very beautiful visually but really a mixed bag content wise The original idea comes from a blog post, and it s not clear the editors ended up deciding whether they wanted a blog like compendium of memories around Jewish food, historical origin sidebars, or recipes, and went with all three, with m...

    Read for the JCC book selection committee My review How often do you find a cookbook that is laugh out loud funny That s why you might want a few copies One for yourself and a few can be deployed as hostess gifts, engagement gifts, Chanukah gifts, and so on.Each section contains a short essay, often by a well known writer Many ...

    bright, witty and often right on point I used this book as a read aloud to Jewish seniors aged 90 They loved the references to foods from their past, as well as the slightly ascerbic writing that characterized many of the entries.
