Modern Jewish Cooking: Recipes & Customs For Today's Kitchen

From a leading voice of the new generation of young Jewish Americans who are reworking the food of their forebears, this take on Jewish-American cuisine pays homage to tradition while reflecting the values of the modern-day food movement. In this cookbook, author Leah Koenig shares 175 recipes showcasing fresh, handmade, seasonal, vegetable-forward dishes. Classics of Jewish culinary culture—such as latkes, matzoh balls, challah, and hamantaschen—are updated with smart techniques, vibrant spices, and beautiful vegetables. Thoroughly approachable recipes for everything from soups to sweets go beyond the traditional, incorporating regional influences from North Africa to Central Europe. Featuring a chapter of holiday menus and rich color photography throughout, this stunning collection is at once a guide to establishing traditions and a celebration of the way we eat now.

I just ordered 5 copies of the book for Passover gifts. . Having written about it, I had the opportunity to test some of the recipes myself and I can tell you they work beautifully and have great cultural and culinary context. A great addition to the rich canon of Jewish cookbooks.

I love Leah Koenig's writing and I am so excited about this book. The recipes are really inviting and accessible. She's got a lot of classics in here like hamantaschen and matzo balls, but also interesting dishes like pomegranate molasses meatballs and Bukharian beef and carrot rice pilaf that are still great for people who want to explore Jewish cooking and/or for kosher eaters. As someone with both Ashkenazi and Mizrahi heritage I feel like there is so much here to explore from both traditions. And I love the freshness and seasonality in her cooking. Thanks for such an inspiring book, I'll be using this one a lot.

Loved the cookbook. I already have 30+ pages that have sticky notes on them so I can easily reference the recipe. I have already made a few recipes for the Passover holiday and will repeat these recipes year round. It's beautifully written and photographed. I have 100's of cookbooks and this is definitely one of the few that will be at the front of the shelf. This cookbook makes a great gift - for someone special or yourself. You don't have to keep kosher to like this cookbook - it's that good.

Fresh, creative recipes that riff off classics. Easy to make and filled with sumptuous photos, this is a cookbook I'll return to again and again. Plenty of vegetarian receipes, too.

It's a unique and tantalizing look at Jewish \cooking for the modern world. I especially love the three different menus for each yom tov. I can't wait to try them.

Fabulous cookbook. Incredible recipes and photos. Easy to follow instructions and very authentic. A joy just to look through and have on your shelf.

Bought this as a gift for my daughter, who studied food science and teaches cooking. She loves it and repaid me by making one of the dishes for me.

I stumbled across this book in a bookstore during a lunch break and it instantly took me back to my aunt's kitchen where she taught me how cooking essentials and all the traditional Jewish recipes. Koenig made this book incredibly easy for the beginner cook as well as sophisticated for the advanced chefs. Every time I look in this book, I find new recipes I immediately want to try. Luckily, a lot of the recipe ingredients can be found in your pantry or local market, so it's not difficult or too expensive to make any of the dishes. Love love this book and I love making it for friends and family to share!
