Event Details

Join us for a virtual cooking class for the High Holidays.

“Jew-ish” is a brilliantly modern take on Jewish culinary traditions for a new generation of readers, from a bright new star in the culinary world.

A few classics come to mind when you think of Jewish food: chicken soup with matzo balls, challah, maybe a babka if you’re feeling adventurous! But as food writer and nice Jewish boy Jake Cohen demonstrates in this stunning debut cookbook, Jewish food can be so much more.

In Jew-ish, he reinvents the food of his Ashkenazi heritage and draws inspiration from his husband’s Persian-Iraqi traditions to offer recipes that are modern, fresh, and enticing for a whole new generation of readers. Imagine the components of an everything bagel wrapped into flaky galette latkes dyed vibrant yellow with saffron for a Persian spin on the potato pancake, best-ever hybrid desserts like Macaroon Brownies and Pumpkin Spice Babka! Jew-ish features elevated, yet approachable classics along with innovative creations.
