New York Times bestseller and brilliantly modern take on Jewish culinary traditions for a new generation of readers.

When you think of Jewish food, a few classics come to mind: 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 a 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, such as: 

  • Jake’s Perfect Challah 
  • Roasted Tomato Brisket 
  • Short Rib Cholent 
  • Iraqi Beet Kubbeh Soup 
  • Cacio e Pepe Rugelach 
  • Sabich Bagel Sandwiches, and
  • Matzo Tiramisu. 

Jew-ish is a brilliant collection of delicious recipes, but it’s much more than that. As Jake reconciles ancient traditions with our modern times, his recipes become a celebration of a rich and vibrant history, a love story of blending cultures, and an invitation to gather around the table and create new memories with family, friends, and loved ones. 

JAKE COHEN is the former food editor of Tasting Table andTime Out New York, and now serves as the editorial director of the FeedFeed (@thefeedfeed). He has written for websites and publications including Food52, Saveur, and others. He lives in New York City with his husband, Alex.

“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
