    French Onion Brisket A keeper - permanent addition to the holiday table - It was an easy make ahead with deep flavor. Adding Calvados is a genius touch.

      This was a labor-intensive version of the dish and overwhelmed by the amount of pasta. No point in using fancy mushrooms if they have to compete with all the blandness.

Publishers Text

These are not your Jewish grandmother's recipes! Jake Cohen, editorial director of the wildly popular Feedfeed 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Jewish boy, has been hosting Friday night Shabbat dinners for the past few years and reinventing beloved (but sometimes outdated) recipes from his culture along the way.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.
